Some good things there, but it may be alienating without pros/cons or why it has even been mentioned, so I'll write those for some things I'm familiar with.

For example, regarding the operating systems category - I assume they were chosen because they don't use the (((Systemd))) cancer and are generally quite secure:
Artix Linux is very good and has a really good community as well, but it's also easy to "break" it (for example, by simply running an update) and will then require the command line to fix up. Been using mostly Linux for around 10 years, but I moved away from Artix because of that.
Also, there are so many init system choices for Artix, people get confused and create threads asking which one to use, which will usually start some kind of discussion every few months. :/

I generally use Devuan with the Cinnamon desktop (don't remember if it does minor telemetry though) or MX Linux with XFCE, although hibernating on a LUKS encrypted install can be flaky because both standard installs don't create a large enough hibernation partition by default, and MX Linux more or less gave up trying to get hibernation running on most machines so have hidden the option. Manually setting up a functioning LUKS install with hibernation is still a huge PITA.

Some quick comments before going to bed (will post more later):
Matrix requires email and collects metadata,
Telegram isn't as secure as people think it is because it requires an identifying phone number, could still match metadata to messages and the creator is on the WEF website,
Tox apps will reveal IP addresses unless running over VPN or TOR,
Otter Browser is cute but crashes frequently.

The only search engine worth using for serious searches nowadays IMO is Yandex.com, because using a frontend like Searx will still pull results from google, and they shoah anything useful before sending the censored results on to other services.

Yandex.com is the last big search engine left standing, and still reminds one of the "good old days" when searches would actually come up with diverse and interesting results, rather than homogeneous satan-(pre)approved ones.
>Matrix requires email and collects metadata
You can also sign up and sign into custom matrix servers. The policies and requirements can be different and more or less secure depending on who made it.
A much larger list can be found here:
This is for a general that has been dormant for a while.

Interesting. Thanks anon.
>Telegram, the messaging system that the feds see every message of and requires a phone number to use
>doesn't list other pone sites such as ponepaste ponytube and pone.social
I generally use qwant.com for a search engine, but meh.
Also you forgot to list gab.com
Probably the most interesting thing out there is the Gemini Protocol
>Gemini is a new application-level internet protocol for the distribution of arbitrary files, with some special consideration for serving a lightweight hypertext format which facilitates linking between files. You may think of Gemini as "the web, stripped right back to its essence"

Tons of other things, krita and inkscape for art, synfig for 2D vector animation, LMMS or Aurdor for making music (DAW), handbrake for encoding videos, kdenlive for video editing, FreeCAD for designing and drawing parts or making technical 3D models, CoreCTRL for overclocking AMD video cards, can do processor stuff too, VeraCrypt for encrypting disk images, full disks, or groups of disks, probably other things I can't think of

No, matrix does not require a phone number, but some servers might require such a thing (won't affect federation at all)
matrix.horse and mlp.chat are your two best based pony matrix servers.
>FreeCAD for designing and drawing parts
I never used a CAD software so unfinished and cumbersome. The current devs are not to the task to make it at least user friendly and iron its quirks. Not actually their fault, the code is a 20 years old C++ spaghetti that no one can understand how it works and needs to be re-written from zero. So, what the devs were and are doing in the last yeas is to write python pluggins to extend functionality, but the flawed core is helpless.
