It seems your thoughts are not the same as my words at all :). Your
suggestion seems to be exactly the opposite of what I wrote in many ways.
Maybe I don't understand what you mean or what you want to communicate with

You dropped the reference to 'everyone'. You added a reference to KDE. You
dropped the 'a world in which' making it less inspirational. Altogether it
seems to me more like a marketing slogan.
Can you say why you made those changes?
Something I think you are right about is:
> Freedom, technology, software, privacy, all of that is IN there.
So for me, this is quite good:
"A world in which everyone has control in their digital life"
I think it is good for all of the same reasons in my previous email. It is
also more concise.
