I really like the text editor
Atom, but it collects a lot of data and transmits it to GitHub and Google. It also uses your MAC address in order to generate a unique identifier which is also sent to the servers.
There seem to be thousands of forks of Atom on GitHub. Do you know if there is a fork that strips out all that nasty stuff?
I am aware that some of the telemetry can be disabled, but it is enabled by default and thus I assume that it will just send data until I disable it. In addition to that there is no option to disable sending crash data.
