Not sure if this is some kind of fake news, or the ownership in waterfox and startepage.com is not the full truth.

I've heard that DuckDuckGo is hosted by Amazon and is worse than Google ethically. It's also just a metasearch using other engines - so no real search engine.

Care to back that up with references? Don't just state things you've "heard" as facts.

If you want to allege that someone is hosted by Amazon (or Google, or Microsoft, or ...), you need to distinguish between the case that the someone is a customer of Amazon's Cloud (or Google's Compute Engine, or Microsoft's Azure, or ...) versus that the hoster is more actively engaged with the someone. In the case that the someone is using a Cloud service, the Cloud provider has a lot of customers, and is unlikely to find it worthwhile to use their privileged position to do anything nefarious. On the other hand, if the hoster is acting as a parent company that owns the someone, they might well integrate more deeply and interfere more actively.

I'm seriously interested and couldn't find any. Is there somewhere a gentoo users statistics? Maybe one based on syncs on mirrors?
