I'm looking at dropping google and have seen two interesting projects, #freedombox and #syncloud, both of which seem to be #raspberrypi distros.

Interestingly, syncloud comes with a disapora pod. (Small instances like this could help solve their moderation issues, tbh) And freedombox comes with a GNU Social instance.

I'm wondering which of these is the most suited to a lazy admin in a fairly tech-phobic household?


@celesteh FreedomBox provides some services that can help you get rid of your Google account - calendar and contact sync (Radicale), Metasearch engine (Searx) and file synchronization (Syncthing).

There are plans to integrate GNU Social and into . They are not available yet.
