#LineageOS is an alternative form of the Android operating system, which works like a normal Android but has the Google-based apps removed.
It can be installed on Android smartphones to replace the Google version of Android.
It's *very* complicated to install, but if you're a tech expert, or you know an expert who can help you, you can download it from the official website:
The download links include installation instructions.
@lukas @attero @switchingsocial yeah, or Aurora Store. Then they've got an even better Google Play replacement, and I guess that is worth it. No setup required, just install and login – just as with Google Play.
So I am true to my word: Lineage/microG is, once setup, as easy to use as LineageOS with GApps, and as easy as any Stock ROM or so.
