Recently @Luculent asked the community to share their experiences of installing and using Linux based operating systems. Several people decide to publish posts and blog articles that explored their own usage of Linux distributions, various desktop environments and open source applications. Below is a complete list of posts and blog articles that where provided by users of free open source software. If you would like to contribute your own experience and would like to provide a blog article or post then feel free to message either myself (medworthy) or Luculent and we will include your article or post to this list.

After spending several hours installing and running Deepin within a guest virtual machine environment, as well as running the console version of wireshark (tshark) on the host platform, then analysing the resulting network packet log file. I can confirm that Deepin is not a spyware product. Whist it is true that the latest Deepin Store does allow access by cnzz.com, due to the fact that the Deepin Store is merely a front-end wrapper for their website based application store, the information that is sent to cnzz.com contains only the screen resolution, the referenced web site, localisation (language) preference and the browser user agent. Which is the same information that would be sent if a user where to view the application store from a standard web browser. The information that is sent to cnzz.com is similar to the information that would be sent to Google Analytics when a user is viewing other websites. In fact, within the last day, Wuhan Deepin Technology Co. Ltd. has released a press statement which again, confirms this point. Also, Deepin Store wrapper has been released via a open source license (GNU / GPL version 3), which can be reviewed by anybody that is interested. I am hoping that the creator of the above video (QuidsUp) will produce a new video which contains a retraction and also provide an explanation for why he did not attempt to communicate with the developers (Wuhan Deepin Technology Co. Ltd.) before publishing his original video.
