Shouldn’t you just add:
“… if a Google-free OS is your main priority.”
Otherwise this statement is plain wrong in my opinion.
Well, at least with regard to this correct statement.
Since @nudge obviously want’s to avoid having to decide between those options.
As @AnotherElk already posted, there is something going on regarding possibly Lineage for the FP3.
Usually it takes up to 6 months, before a non-official OS becomes available.
Since FP was really available not before mid-November, this means, one should wait at least til April or even May before starting to complain.
Well, in my opinion at least. Everyone is free to differ.
