We have many orders of magnitude faster PC ram and blazing fast solid state hard-drives, all being choked down by background data collection by the Big M. Then you connect to the internet and all of the tracking software and adware jumps on top. Linux is an option, much more plug and play than before, but may still require manual intervention.
