I was surprised that raspberry pi has not addressed privacy. Especially since the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) movement use of Marvell Technology Group,ltd's wifi technology enables spying on the geolocation of all the laptops. "Each laptop will act as a node in a mesh peer-to-peer and ad hoc network, allowing several hundred machines to share a single online connection." http://www.marvell.com/products/pcconn/ ... elease/557
If the raspberry pi does not have an ad hock network and does not have a processor serial number (PSN), I will buy one. Otherwise, I am forced to buy a 2004 or older MAC with an IBM processor as they are the latest computers without a PSN.
All the computers sold in the United States have either a processor by Intel or AMD. Since 1995, Intels processors have a PSN. Difficult to obtain information on when AMD started PSN. Intel's AMT and AMD DASH enable "IT administrators", governments and hackers to hack the BIOS virtually undetectable. Intel AMT and AMD DASH enable Wake on Lan (WOW), altering the BIOS, altering the OS, etc.
I am a domestic violence victim. My abuser hired hackers to hack my computer. I installed Fedora. I went online only with live Linux DVDs using an USB network adapter to change my MAC address. I didn't use the USB network adapter when I didn't go online. My abuser's hackers procured my PSN, hacked my BIOS and infected my graphic card and motherboard with firmware rootkits.
I hope the raspberry pi with Fedora installed will offer a little bit of privacy since all other computers no longer do.
