“Windows Defender Browser Protection” Extension for Google Chrome
It turns out,
this extension is entirely independent of Windows Defender. You
don't have to use WD as your primary AV for it to work, and it
even works under Linux. Personally, I hate extensions which try to
"protect" me from sites I want to visit. But these days, you can
be misdirected so many ways it never hurts to get warnings if
something, somewhere somehow goes horribly wrong.

Be Allowed to Collect Data on Non-Users?
This is the
equivalent of someone opening up an iTunes account without my
knowledge and then charging my bank account using stolen credit
card info. It is criminal and should not be permitted under any
circumstances. These days, personal information is bankable
currency, and the law should treat it as such. On the other hand,
strict adherence to such a standard would mean the end of
top-secret credit scoring like Equifax is doing. Those companies
would have to notify us of every detail they collect, store and
use, and we would be able to challenge and remove anything we can
prove is inaccurate at any time from their records on us.
mobile platforms? You’re not alone. Here’s clarity.
The author is
confused about Gallium OS on Chromebooks. The method is a firmware
change which happens via a Root Script inside of ChromeOS. Then
the dual-boot is installed via either Crouton (container inside
Chrome OS) or chrx (as close to a true dual-boot as a Chromebook
can do). The script is not part of Gallium OS; in fact, nearly any
Linux distro can eb installed on most Intel-based Chromebooks.
Finding the drivers and dealing with other quirks, like the
Chromebook keyboard layout, is left to the user in the other Linux
distros, but all of that (well, most of it) is already figured out
and pre-compiled in Gallium OS.
definitely the "alt OS" Google is referencing in their newer
Pixelbooks. Windows is not even on the horizon.
which Microsoft sells now is a connector to Azure Web Services,

Microsoft is not selling Linux. They would not be allowed to call

How to change
Boot order in Windows 10
I always use my
BIOS setup on my NUC. It's F7, or F2 for the full BIOS setup
screens, and F10 for just the Boot Menu. My Chromebook is set up
so that if USB media are present, the Boot Select options always
come up before GRUB2. Most devices have function keys, and these
address the device firmware. Windows or any other OS has nothing
to do with this stage of booting.
Do I Really Need
a System Image Backup?
Do you have any
custom settings? Do you have any third-party software (not from
the Windows Store) installed? Then I think we all know the answer
is, yes. Chrome OS, Android and iOS all save user settings in the
Cloud, but Mac OS Linux and Windows do not.

things. Unlike Windows, if a Linux program or feature is not being
