A China citizen could reply exactly identical.
It s hilarious seeing US people talking about how they are protected privacy wise in their own country with their own operating system ,but using hardware Made in China..
US is one of the most controlled countries in the world in my opinion ,in spite of the so called democracy ,same as China.
Democracy and freedom are just illusions for most of the citizens around the world.
Hardware Made in China can very well have all kinds of low level malware or spyware preinstalled and undetected ,starting from a motherboard UEFI firmware and finishing with iphones ,phones and tablets.So the backdors are in there.
Also thee seems to be some hate going towards Linux this days ,maybe due to the huge success of Windows 8.
Ubuntu or Open SUSE are operating systems able to stay along Windows in many aspects for casual users ,you can browse ,chat ,edit ,play some games on Steam ,listen to music ,play movies with no problems what so ever ,a free bunch of software OS included and virus free.
Ubuntu is one of the easiest to configure OS i ve ever seen and that is why it has been chosen most probable.
Maybe in this way Open GL will be more used in the gaming industry as it was once.
