Sure - More successful in the same way that locking people up for thought crimes prevents crimes. Or something. It's not exactly easy to trust a closed system developed by a corporation whose sole purpose is to make money.

As long as we don't know exactly what they're sneaking into the kernel, they could be doing anything. Harvesting data, selling it. And so on and so forth.

You don't need kernel level code to harvest data.

Harder to audit code in the kernel, to their point, to be fair. But every game more or less does it, it's a trade-off.

How is it harder to audit tho? It's just more code, not too much different from userspace code.
