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 
that sentence.

> KDE: control your digital life

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.
