[PLUG] F-Droid

I just learned about this and it's awesome.


Per Wikipedia: "F-Droid is a software repository (or "app store") for Android applications; it functions similarly to the Google Play store, but only contains free and open-source software. The apps can be browsed and installed from the F-Droid website or directly from the F-Droid client app (which is not available in the Google Play store, but can be installed by sideloading)."

Note "Sideloading of apps is only possible if the user allowed "Unknown Sources" in their Security Settings."

Very cool, I see something over 1,000 apps, though some of those are language packs for keyboards and such.

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
