@dusnm And people who don't have a data plan. I visited NYC recently and ran into that problem several times.
@craftyguy !!! good point. I'll double-check that; maybe I gave up too early there.
@craftyguy git repo checked out in a subfolder like ~/.dotfiles + custom script to create/update the right symlinks? That's what I'm working towards. I tried making the home folder itself the git repo (as explained in https://drewdevault.com/2019/12/30/dotfiles.html for example) but it doesn't really work because ~/.gitignore is picked up by every other git repo anywhere under ~/
@BrodieOnLinux It's a bit like looking at Mozilla isn't it 🙁
I replaced my personal laptop with a Librem 5 and laptop dock for a week. Here are my impressions: https://puri.sm/posts/my-first-week-of-librem-5-convergence/
https://puri.sm/posts/librem-5-news-summary-january-2021/ So, #librem5 orders from October 2017 are expected to be shipped by May. Which means that my order from July 2019 won't be here by ... the fall? the end of the year? :(
Just received the #fsfbulletin, which was apparently sent on November 17th x)
Librem 5 Mass Production Phone Has Begun Shipping
"Shipping the Librem 5 has been an immense multi-year developmental effort. It is the culmination of people’s desire to see an alternative to Android and iOS..."
Two on-site job postings added today: https://puri.sm/jobs/ more (including remote work) will get posted in the future.
@cameron So it's been a great experience so far :p My brand new phone still works and now runs LineageOS. Next step is to install F-Droid (which you can't get from Google's App Store) but that's for tomorrow
@cameron Okay the LineageOS install went pretty well! I read this article first: https://www.androidauthority.com/lineageos-install-guide-893303/ and it gives a lot of useful background info. Then the Lineage wiki gave clear instructions and commands so I wasn't lost even though it was pretty much my first time touching an Android device
@cameron @firstname.lastname@example.org @nergal I'm in the exact same situation as you with a dying iPhone 5 and no short term hope from my #Librem5 order. So I ordered a Motorola g7 and will try to put LineageOS on it... I'm nervous as well but if it works it's going great for the transition phone until I get a usable Librem
