For my talk I've hacked up the great pdf-presenter-console to fit the phone screen and show my notes so I can see what's currently on the LCD for the audience:

@agx wow! Super exciting ! Just for fun or do you see a particular niche in the #marketplace?

@Fu My goal is to work towards being able to leave the laptop at home more often. If it has "market value" remains to be seen. I do think that "PC in your pocket" is a great differentiator for the and other linux mobile devices that is often overlooked.

@agx @Fu I'm looking forward to that as well. I have to bring my own laptop to work, it would be so cool if I could just show up with my #Librem5!

@agx I mean I know I'm an #rms fan boy, but even for open source folks this is clearly GNU/Linux phone, as we have had Android/Linux phones for over a decade now

@Fu @agx His phone OS is, but there is also #postmarketOS which I wouldn't call GNU (being based on #alpinelinux and #Musl and #Busybox) but also isn't Android.

@bart @Fu @agx

If "NGNU" works for #postmarketos and #alpinelinux we could simply call them "[N]GNU/Linux phones", problem solved once and for all ;)

time to go to sleep 🛌

@devrtz @Fu @agx That sounds even worse than GNU/Linux does, so imo not 🙈 Never been a fan of it anyway, I get what people using that name are trying to do but it just sounds horrific.

@agx case in point I spent over half my work day today doing everything from my Android/Linux device

@Fu Interesting. Did you dock it to larger screen? What apps did you use? Most people I've met that use this with Android weren't very happy with the app situation where as on Linux with a distribution you have the adaptive ones as well as the ones for desktop that work very well in these situations (as they were built with that use case in mind).
