If you’ve ever had an app on your phone that you wanted on your laptop, you’ve wanted convergence. The two big mobile OS vendors have been dreaming of convergence between laptop OS and mobile OS for a long time.
Purism is beating the duopoly to that dream, with PureOS. PureOS is convergent, and has laid the foundation for all future applications to run on both the Librem 5 phone and Librem laptops, from the same PureOS release. See it in action!
You know the amazing https://mobile.twitter.com/biktorgj who singlehandedly created a nearly-FOSS userland modem firmware for the #pinephone and #pinephonepro ? He supports the community, is incredibly stubborn, err, persistent, in the face of a weird modem and regularly improves the firmware. You can even tell your phone modem to remind you to buy milk now via SMS. He likes coffee and we think he deserves some as a token of gratitude 😍! Pour him one ☕ https://ko-fi.com/biktorgj

Here is a blog of my first experiences with the #Librem5 as a daily driver. It is my intention to update the blog regularly, and create each day a new blog post the coming week.
Problem had been that the L5 did discharge while connected to the #Nexdock360, because the N360 only delivers around 5W of power to the connected device.
This is fine if both devices are used on battery and discharge this way.
But I wanted to be able to use the L5 while charging.
Yeah, one point on my todo list for Librem5 using done 😃
@blenderdumbass This isn't entirely correct.
The real problem is that people don't want to host their own content. Just that. They don't want to have to continuously upload it to other places, they don't want to dedicate the storage in an ongoing way to keeping it in one place, they don't want to be responsible for that part. Which is reasonable.
The challenge is to get them to do it for a reason.
Thanks everyone for your work and contributions!

Instead of #phosh I'm using a test client to hack on #phoc's gesture support. The red bar basically maps to phosh's top-panel. Red meaning `folded`, green `moving` and blue `unfolded`. The first prereqs for this are already merged and I hope to submit more over the next weeks. Animations need more work as does cancelation, etc but it's moving forward. The way it's implemented works for other kinds of gestures too and also for mouse and laptop touchpad gestures.
