Installed unmodified desktop on my .

Performance is fantastic (can play some great DOS-era games), but the display is just a tiny bit too big for the screen.

Then I remembered it fit on the Librem 5 dev kit with one line changed in the .conf. (Window size.)

I find task switching on the (PureOS) really interesting.

The launcher and the switcher are the *same* view.

No apps are running: the grid of installed apps takes up the full view.

With apps are running: the top half becomes a row of the apps you can swipe through.

I am seriously blown away by how much of the @gnome software works on the smaller, touch-centric screen of the .

The work of the GNOME team, the @purism crew, and so many independent developers that are making this happen... truly impressive.

All of you rule.

It's amazing to me how much software is already available on the Librem 5.

- Some of it optimized for touch screens.
- Some partially optimized.
- Some not yet optimized, but functional.

The power of Free and Open Source software (and Linux) at work. :)

Holy smokes.

LibreOffice runs on the Librem 5!

AND IT WORKS.

Saving files, opening files, typing... the UI is a bit cramped (it's a desktop app on a phone)... but hot-diggity! It works!

Well. LibreOffice successfully installed on the Librem 5!

But... I mean... It won't actually run.

... will it?

What madness is this?!

Installing the complete, unmodified LibreOffice right on a Librem 5?!??

This can't work... can it?

Time to install some more software on my Librem 5.

This is fun. :)

Ok. I'm not *actually* dialing Jenny.

(Well, now that's gonna be stuck in my head all day.)

The openSUSE project is voting to change their name. Should they change? What name should "openSUSE" change to?
