It looks like this issue (Wine won't install, Does not have valid release file) might have come back to life but I don't really understand why
` sudo apt-add-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ bionic main' ` gives me `E: The repository "http://ppa.launchpad.net/wine/wine-builds/ubuntu bionic Release" does not have a Release file.` even though https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/dists/bionic/ clearly has a bionic Release filehttps://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/dists/bionic/

nevermind, sudo apt-add-repository --remove http://ppa.launchpad.net/wine/wine-builds/ubuntu got rid of the error, though I don't know how the ppa got added?

huh interesting
I would like a Linux based smartphone with better security and control
 
jrg
IDK if it'd have better security
better privacy, sure
because no apps will run on it 😂

a couple of times I've wondered how hard it would be to make a special Android build that would return gibberish data when something is accessed in a way that implies poor privacy practices
like if a (malicious / compromised) app attempted to access the microphone when it wasn't in focus and had special permission, return white noise instead of actual audio
