Re: Any blogs talking bad things about the "Google Settings" app?
tgalati4, I'm sure the app is useful and there's a reason why it exists, so the concern isn't about the 8Mb of
disk space the app uses or whether it's malicious or redundant or how useful it is for the people who uses
all the Google services.
Just think about it, even Microsoft had the decency of pushing into the XP machines the WGA via an
update that we could opt no to install; the ones of us who had a VM with a pirated XP installed could just
remove WGA and it would never install again on its own; that doesn't seems to be the case with the
Settings app, for what I've read, if removed, it will just install on it's own again.
It's about freedom, not about free stuff that I'm concerned. Many likes GNU/linux because it's free, and
that's OK; but I like it because I like deciding what enters into my system and what doesn't, and if possible,
what each piece of stuff is allowed to do.
How strange it is, that a fool or a knave, with riches, should be treated with more respect by the world, than a good man, or a wise man in poverty!
