Want to break up big tech? Require they have API's. If you don't have a public API, you don't get to claim you're a platform, and if you're not a platform you're liable for all your users uploaded content. How's that for a trade-off? https://www.zylstra.org/blog/2019/07/7923/

Lubuntu is based on Ubuntu and runs the same Linux apps, but it has a lighter interface with much lower system requirements.
