I wrote this article because I believe that a true democratic society is slowly happening while the technology is slowly being owned by the people. This bright upcoming future has nothing to do with politics but from the people financing Free aka "Libre" licensed technologies.
Insightful. We can't repeat often enough that @mobian , @debian , @postmarketOS , @manjarolinux and others would not be where they are now, without @purism adopting a cooperative upstreaming policy. We would wager that everyone purchasing a (true) Linux device now, benefits from your investments. There is plenty to criticize and nag about you 😝, but you are doing the whole FOSS community a service that could not easily be replicated by volunteers.
Bored this weekend? We've finally got a new drawing challenge for you!

#Kdenlive is entering a phase of many massive changes. First up, KDE's full-featured video editor is now part of the ASWF's list of recommended tools, alongside software used at Disney, Warner Brothers, Netflix, Amazon Studios and more.
Stayed tuned for more exciting announcements in the coming months.
Two things around the corner for less flicker during boot in #phosh and #phoc (https://gitlab.gnome.org/World/Phosh/phosh/-/merge_requests/890, https://gitlab.gnome.org/World/Phosh/phoc/-/merge_requests/265)
Making a #sip call from the #calls app on the #librem5 (and yes audio worked ;) ). This is still a development version of gnome-calls. And work still needs to be done to make it more user friendly and integrated with other components. But hey it is progress :D
Credits go out to: @devrtz that has been working to add #sip on gnome-calls. Also the account on the phone is an jmp.chat account, shoutout to them as jmp.chat is an awesome service :D
...and you can swipe it away too in case you thing s.th. got stuck:
Librem 5 (left) vs Canon SX740 HS (right)
Both photos are taken at around 3MP (quarter the resolution L5 actually supports, but for now only from the command line, while I took it using Megapixels). Manually adjusted the raw image from L5 to have similar color balance as Canon's photo.

Librem 5 Update: Shipping Estimates and CPU Supply Chain
"It’s been a busy holiday and New Year’s season at Purism as we continue to ship out Librem 5s to backers each week. We know for those who haven’t received their Librem 5 yet, what they most want to know is when their Librem 5 will arrive."
This was the second of the 3 Librem 5 promo videos I made at home during the lock-down : https://odysee.com/@purism:8/a-phone-that-respects-your-children:6
