Tip: the only people who think that the Open Source Definition does not define "open source" are saying so because they have a vested interest in marketing software which does not qualify for the title as such. Watch out for these arguments, they are gaslighting you.

Oh, and that's of course on the 2000mAh battery. The final model is going to have a 3600mAh one :)

That's with the screen, modem, WiFi and USB off. Modem probably wouldn't influence it that much though.

I've collected some hacks from our kernel team and tested the idle time on battery on my Librem 5 Birch - got almost exactly 6 hours while staying at 38°C the whole time. Not that long ago it struggled to reach 3h and stay under 60°C - and they're not done yet! :D

0.2.0 got released:

featuring first quick settings (for battery, rotation and feedback), proximity sensor support and more ground work for better notifications and translation updates.


What is Mobile ? A walk through of what is included in PureOS, the default /#Linux distribution installed on the written by our @dos

Another WIP feature - power users will appreciate this one ;) This is unmodified GNOME Maps. It wouldn't fit on the screen, but phoc can now automatically scale its window down to make it fit.

It still needs a lot of work, but a proof of concept for window thumbnails in appears to work :) @purism

The next merge request will make cross the 1000 commit boundary:

$ git log --pretty=oneline | wc -l

Multiple GTK apps open in the same environment and all fitting nice in the screen.
Thank you

After adding proximity sensor-support to -sensor-proxy ( and adding runtime-pm support for the chip used in the (and it's devkit) ( we can now wire it up to to fade the screen and prevent keyboard input:

A lot of people are confused by git. Most of these people, I reckon, learned it from the outside in - from the command-line interface down. If you started with git by asking "how do I sync up my changes with my peers", then you might get the answer, but you will be missing the foundation on which that answer is built. This is the main source of confusion with git.

The better way is to learn git from the inside out. You should first learn about what objects are and how they're stored and identified, and how they relate to each other. You should learn what blobs, trees, and commits actually are, and how they relate to each other, and how commits form a linked list from which a graph of all objects can be derived.

Then you should learn how the ref database gives friendly names like "master" and "feature/foobar" to objects, and how the reflog tracks changes to references over time.

THEN, and only then, should you learn how to use the CLI. Then you can learn about using the staging area to add objects to the database and create commits, and how doing this updates the reflog.

Git makes total sense when you approach it from this angle. Supposedly hard tools like git rebase are totally understandable when you view them with the appropriate foundational knowledge.

Git is a tool which you will reach for hundreds of times a day, every day, for your entire career. Maybe it's worth learning about properly.
