TIL that adding a second user to an Android device will cause that device to _reinstall_ all the default shovelware you might have removed from the device, nosy-by-default permissions and all.

I say this a lot, but software is a byproduct of the culture of the organization making it, and once you've had any experience with Android's idea of "permissions" it will come as no surprise to you at all to learn that the creator of Android believes that one human being can own another.

There it is, installed and already phoning home before I even interact with it. What the fuck.

I have never heard of an operating system that you spent time and effort getting into some reasonably safe place, where adding another user just undid all that effort unannounced and by silent default. This is really disgusting.
