I should make a patch for dosbox.conf in the package for the . That way it'll fit on the screen just right for folks when they install it, with no fiddling.

Getting DOSBox just right on my phone.

I've got my personal priorities. ;)

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.)

@mariusor Sailfish definitely does it in an interesting way. I find the differences in task switching/management between different systems oddly fascinating. :)

iOS and Android both have task switching and app launching as different functions and views. Are there any operating systems that put them together like on the ?

I'm drawing a blank. But I kind of dig it!

@masterofthetiger Weirdly well. The UI is cramped as heck (obviously), but it's totally actually usable. And honestly doesn't look bad! Just... so rad.

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. :)

@lazerbeak12345 I actually used to do that! Did that with a Pi 2 for several months. Worked astoundingly well!

@lunduke I went to your site to subscribe to your RSS feed. The web developer in me wanted to convert your table to a css grid and make it responsive. Don't get me wrong, I don't want you to change a thing about it. My web dev OCD just kicked in. :yay:

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. :)

I love #Linux. I fell asleep reading about the sudo security flaw, and woke up this morning with the patch ready to install! #opensource goodness!

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

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