Embrace, replace, trash the original; #Microsoft is trying to do to #GNU #Linux what it has done to many products and competing companies over the decades; know the tricks, learn the hard lessons… http://techrights.org/2020/06/08/apt-get-remove-gnu-linux/
Avoid #Vivaldi browser not just because it is #proprietarysoftware but because it apparently takes money from #microsoft to help Microsoft (and the NSA, obviously) spy on users. It sold out in a big and unethical way. Avoid.
