I gave up on Microsoft desktop products more than 15 years ago. Mac
products more than 7 years ago. (When Apple refused to fix my broken
MacBook screen, that was it for Apple.)
Why do I run my own servers, including a mail server? Court subpoenas.
When I was working at a Web host company, I got several of these things,
complete with gag orders. Mail captures, mostly.
One time the Nevada Gaming Commission wanted to take an image of a colo
customer's hard drive. The fool they brought was a MSCE, and knew
*nothing* about Unix and Linux. Ended up having to do the mirror
myself, and sign an affidavit to boot. (Customer was running an on-line
poker service without a license, which is unlawful in Nevada.)
I want to know when a LEO gets access to my data.
