freedesktop-sdk 19.08.07 has been released with Mesa 19.3 - which means that flatpaked apps can use OpenGL out-of-box with upstream unmodified runtime on the Librem 5 now! \o/
this laptop (MNT Reform) and this phone (Purism Librem 5) have the same SoC (CPU/GPU/...), i.MX8M. and both run free and open source drivers and software. #FOSDEM2020
Something that has surprised me over the few weeks I've had this #Librem5 phone is the rapid progress. Each week brings at least one big improvement. Case in point, yesterday's kernel update (should hit main repos in a few days) made a noticeable change in the phone's heat and touchscreen performance.
Did you know that you can update the firmware of a USB-C cable?
...and a fair share of issues mentioned are already fixed or waiting for being released :)
I guess my #Librem5 is dual-sim now :D
There's a well-known African proverb: "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together." What Moxie's centralization talk misses is that the faults in early decentralized protocols came because dotcoms wanted to capture the market.
Why do people say that #Librem5 is "so thick"? I mean, just look, it's clearly the thinnest one! ;)
"I'm blown away by what Purism has been able to accomplish. This is a much more polished product than I expected when I backed. (...) All the basics are there and it seems to be a solid foundation for the future" :) https://azdle.net/2019/11/comparing-apples-and-gnomes/ #librem5 #purism #gnu #linux #mobile
