    I love the part where the shapely young lady gets ROASTED for looking at that guy's default Lenovo wallpaper.

      Err, the most common reason why this feature gets attention is for example, because of business customers wanting it so they can work on their company stuff while being in a flight or coffee shop. It is a nice to have feature and works pretty well for avoiding casual eyes from prying on information they don't need to see.
      Are you serious? I mean, didn't you realize I was joking?

        I'd be surprised if Lenovo was the first to go down this path. They were caught doing some extremely shady things with bootloader exploits a few years back, and never really apologized.

          Regardless of your intent, I was just adding some context, in case anyone is unfamiliar with how this feature gets used.

            This is one of your poorer trolling attempts. Canonical has some employees that contribute to GNOME. That does not make them part of GNOME. Canonical is a separate entity that does plenty of things unrelated to GNOME. Get some new material.

              Besides, I'm sure that, if Nathan Poe said so, it must be true (I'm joking again): there are plenty of parodies and jokes written in books well before emoticons were even a thing.

              Anyway, I'm not a writer, nor native english speaker, so I may well be hard to understand.

              Yes, that's actually a good thing, thanks, though I can't imagine anyone not getting it straight from the feature name: "privacy screen".

                DanL Calm down would you? You can’t upstream big stuff like this without having significant merits. Some Canonical devs are GNOME foundation members and some maintains GNOME modules. This is way more than just a few stray “contributions”.

                Canonical’s long term planning on Trello also reveal they plan keep this level of engagement and do OEM jobs like this.

                (Yeah I get it, you try to troll me into an exchange of insults and then appeal for bans. That’s not going to happen. I’ll keep the popcorn hot and the beers cold and silently laugh at your increasingly desperate trolling as Canonical keeps doing GNOME stuff. The Canonical devs already helped upload GNOME40 to Debian so it won’t be long. Cheers!)

                  Did you see any exclamation points, caps lock, bold/large fonts, or anything like that in my last post? Nope. Telling me to calm down makes zero sense, as with many of your posts.
