I don't know what to think about this telemetry thing in Plasma: I can unterstand why the KDE people want to know on which hardware Plasma is running. On the other hand, it remains telemetry.🤔
What we can learn from Plasma telemetry
@aladar @chris @madargon @datenteiler butting in, I don't think telemetry is a bad thing by itself as long as the code is open source, you know what kind of data is gathered, the gathering part is transparent about it (i.e. letting users know) and users always have the choice to disable it. In my opinion plasma checks all the boxes
