Want a Secure and Simple Linux Experience? I Can't Recommend Elementary OS 7.1 Highly Enough.
If you're interested in an operating system that takes your privacy seriously without preventing you from getting things done, try Elementary OS.
Once upon a time, Elementary OS was my go-to Linux distribution. I found it to be as user-friendly as it was elegant.
With the release of version 7.1, the team has proven it's serious about keeping both the aesthetic and the experience front and center. However, this time around, they're going all in on privacy.
With this new release, the OS will alert users any time an app attempts to:
- Read location.
- Send notifications.
- Auto start and run in the background without permission.
- Access system or home folders.
- Read and write system settings.
- Attempt to escape the sandbox and gain heightened permissions.
