How far do you guys go with sacrificing convenience for privacy? What is your philosophy in making tradeoffs?

@ibmiubu Its not that much of a tradeoff, most privacy stuff is almost as convenient as any other. For me greatest tradeoff is switching to Linux, because I need some software that is Windows exclusive. That's why I got 2 SSDs, two clean installations, one for Windows 10 and other for Ubuntu 18.04. Another tradeoff is increased captchas while using VPN, and thats about it for me.

@ibmiubu I don't have a philosophy per se but GPS apps with updated traffic info is important to me so I look the other way with the tracking stuff there. The one thing I will go out of my way to avoid tracking is with sms and emails. I don't want any scanning of that info.
