While things aren't looking good with what's happening, I wouldn't panic just yet - from what I've read in the last day or so it seems more than likely there'll be at least 1 fork so I'll be waiting and watching for a bit before looking around...

Yeah, you'd think they would have picked non-Russian MS telemetry for data collection to avoid complaints. It is being forked and for now Debian 10 and 11 only package from the older source code. On the other hand it's a CC license and maybe they figure Linux distros can solve their own issues with the added data mining. More than likely they were forced into it by MS's legal liability positions with countries other than the US.

An excerpt:
Quote
Muse Group seems to have its heart in the right place. Martin Keary, a former Canonical designer responsible for MuseScore, an open-source music notation software also owned by Muse Group, will oversee Audacity at Muse Group. Despite the design experience, Keary is probably best known for his YouTube channel Tantacrul. He made a very in-depth video on Audacity back when the announcement was first made. "Just like we're doing at MuseScore," says Keary in the video, "we're planning on significantly improving the feature set and ease-of-use of Audacity, providing dedicated designers and developers to give it the attention it deserves, while keeping it free and open source." While the roadmap for Audacity looks to bring some exciting features, what's perhaps more important is that Keary is "interviewing users and creating online spaces to interact with those users in an effort to determine priorities and approaches to the program's development going forward."

He also says that Audacity will publish design mockups for users to comment on before those changes are shipped. In other words, Muse Group is listening to the community. Telemetry is a touchy subject. Muse Group apologised, backed off the change, and said it will self-host a Sentry-based system for tracking crashes and checking for software updates, and drop the telemetry for now.
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)

If alternatives are available in the standard apt-get software library, it would be great though.
Don't have a great experience with PPA (exept Wine dev ;) )
