i guess i picked the right forum, and didn't find anything on it in the search, so please delete if needed.

The title says it all, a few quotes



Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today introduced the Secure Data Act to protect Americans’ privacy and data security. The bill prohibits government mandates to build backdoors or security vulnerabilities into U.S. software and electronics.




“Strong encryption and sound computer security is the best way to keep Americans’ data safe from hackers and foreign threats. It is the best way to protect our constitutional rights at a time when a person’s whole life can often be found on his or her smartphone. And strong computer security can rebuild consumer trust that has been shaken by years of misstatements by intelligence agencies about mass surveillance of Americans,” Wyden said. “This bill sends a message to leaders of those agencies to stop recklessly pushing for new ways to vacuum up Americans’ private information, and instead put that effort into rebuilding public trust.”

No time to go through it now, but would this also protect us from our own gov't, along with foreign ones?
Thanks in advance

Yeah sure because people are dumping Microsoft windows that is little more than a platform for NSA spying on files and internet activity along with a file system that is bloated and slow.

Talk I say to make people feel safe when they should be running for the exit door.

I cannot read or understand bill gates code but I can see what it does using sniffers, firewalls, dns/proxy servers and file watch programs and very little of it is good.

Too late for me to get out but if you are new to programming then don't let Microsoft and its visual studio drive you up a one way street.

send me a copy of your registry and I can tell you what time you got out of bed and the serial number of ever pen stick you have ever plugged into your USB port whilst windows was running but I cannot tell you a safe way that works to backing and restore your registry using windows 8
