You are preaching to the choir, Mazuki... I have 4 "Linux does what win don't" videos which cover 40 reasons why I think Linux is superior and that does not even come close to the number of advantages you gained by kicking proprietary operating systems to the curb... I am always discovering new ways to get things done.... Manjaro powers my main machine and Lubuntu powers my netbook server... it is YOUR OS... and you can make it do anything YOU want... Look at the code, change it... Leave the plastic factory wrapping on... or.... RIP OUT THE DVD BAY and INSTALL A CUISINART... then carve your name into the chassis to REALLY MAKE IT YOURS! The only limit is your imagination! HA HA!

Maybe I've become a crotchety old man but I don't see any need for kitchen appliances to have an internet connection.
all I can say is look for the episide of the X Files from season 11 called:You are not allowed to view links.
Register or Loginyou might have a different view of IoT once you've seen that
I haven't seen it, probably never will. However, my view of IoT needs no more evidence than the Android ecosystem where you have millions of older devices that haven't seen updates in YEARS. Devices are released with vulnerabilities and never see any sort of update, I've had devices that NEVER saw an update in spite of the fact that I knew they had vulnerabilities that could be exploited. That's why I never keep anything important on my phone and treat it as completely disposable. If some enterprising troublemaker wanted to cause complete chaos, they could probably shut down half of the internet simply by hijacking IoT devices.
