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. :)

@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.)

Giving users the power to moderate their own feeds is the key. Centralized moderation will always be flawed--a company can never represent your sensitivities as well as you and your peers (and will likely bow to outside pressure to censor, whether it's China or groups of users).

Pardon the dark shot. Was on my workbench. I'll take some better shots in a bit. :)

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

My personal Librem 5 arrives tomorrow, dudes and dudettes! What's the first piece of software I should install on it?

And, yes, I'll post pictures and video and whatnot. :)

Microsoft, GitHub take firm political stances, vilifies those that disagree.

... should Tech companies / organizations take political stances outside of their core mission?
