A privacywall for Windows, designed to dismantle built-in data collection and give the PC back to the user.
What is Blackbird?
Don't want Windows spying on your every move? Don't feel like spending hours messing with privacy settings that ultimately still result in data collection? Think your private information belongs to you and no one else? Or maybe you just want a faster PC and don't like all the new "features" Windows has to offer.
We think so too, so we made Blackbird V6

A bit torn by this one ... the developer seems genuine enough, hoping to turn the app into a full time business via Proteon.
On the other hand, there are the malware alerts from 15 different scanners on VirusTotal, see: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/8c89913809b692dc8757ac80b406f333ef9fb0f2a1d5ef9323d9d0ad52df59ac/detection ... the developer does warn there will be detections but the variety of malware names this attracts is disconcerting, to say the least.
Again, the developer promises to open source the app, but is holding out for more public funding before he does so. I'd suggest that developers might find more joy open sourcing first, and then asking for update pay.
