    Something good may just come out of this Huawei ban after all.

    I Huawei makes their laptops as kernel friendly as Dell, we have another strong Linux manufacturer.

        Ok you gotta stop with these kinda BS without actual proof.. The only thing that was found in this Open Source project so far in Deepin was a CNZZ for statistic which is the same thing as Google Analytics in China.. Why do you wanna put down an open source project just because it's from China??

          Because all entities are powerless when it comes to government in China. In US all entities actually have some power to defend themselves from government. First one being power separation. In China its one entity CPP that has absolute power and has bad track record on spying. e.g manufacturers selling phones in china have to have government software that sends back data about Chinese citizens when they are outside of china, also ban on encryption algorithms in China...

            The desktop is definitely eye candy, but unfortunately it is dog slow compared to its peers.

            How many OS'es put up a nag warning that you are running them in a VM?

            Their are column inches of discussion on Quora and Reddit on the issue.

                Defending or not, US companies spy on you as well, not to mention the NSA.

                  Yeah, keep telling yourself that. BTW, how is that Intel chip (IME) on your laptop/desktop/server doing, while you are not around...

                    The US doesn't jail you for using VPNs etc or punish companies for not putting backdoors in their products.

                    The Chinese Gov can force companies to put back doors in their products at any time, and since I think Deepin builds aren't even reproducible, you wouldn't even be able to tell there isn't a backdoor because there's no way to verify the binary matches the source code.

                    Deepin rebuilds, such as on Fedora are probably fine, but Deepin OS I personally wouldn't touch for that very reason.
