@xethos @devrtz thats why i keep my subscription. No wasted electronics, a steady payment and less a guilt feeling of 'donating' for a service.

okay, this might come as a shock, but electron is a f*** chrome-browser.

Had a project lately, where the developing party did not allow to use the dev-mode inside the electron based client.
well, QA as we are, we know packetsniffers and found the base-url.
From there it was just open chromium and use dev-tools...
so when people say the develop in, they mean they develop for google-chrome.

@devrtz Honestly, this right here (your work included) is why I'm still considering picking up a Librem 5.

They're ex*pensive*, I absolutely do not need more electronics, and the L5 processor is slower than my PPP - which is already (to me) a viable daily carry.

But the only reason I can get away with using the PPP as my only phone is because of the work by Purism. So I should at some point pick one up.

@devrtz Purism is doing the right thing by pricing their hardware to support software developers. With Red Hat beginning to pull support from the Linux desktop, we need another company that can fill the gap. @purism is our best hope today.

@julianfairfax @deedend @devrtz @purism

Linux wasn't a "desktop" platform to begin with either so that argument doesn't make sense.

Linux is what we make out of it by contributing to the solution. The Linux kernel has the capability to run well on mobile. We have mobile shells and adaptive toolkits and devices that can run them well. We need to continue to grow the app ecosystem and work on infrastructure bits sure but this very thread proves that this is happening at a nice pace.

@devrtz @julianfairfax @agx @deedend @purism @tbernard well we certainly extend our warmest invitation to anyone wishing to package Flare, Pipeline, or Railway for Debian, or any another distribution!

Purism boosted

@devrtz @agx @deedend @purism @schmiddionmobile the biggest thing you (or anyone else) can do for Flare, is to get more developers to take a look it.

I'm sure the issues with Flare and with presage (these two being the biggest) can be fixed, but both have few developers with limited time.

@deedend @devrtz @purism Australia is big but I know there's folks there with Librem 5s so maybe a meetup style thing is possible at one point.

@agx @deedend @devrtz @purism
I have been daily driving mine since February of this year. Before that, I daily drove the PPP for a year and before that I daily drove the PP for a year.
The was a major step up in quality and usability from day one. I loved my pinephones, but I don't think that I could go back to them.

Purism boosted

@deedend @devrtz @purism I encourage everyone to try PureOS on the Librem 5 to judge daily usability of the Librem 5 and if it's "the time yet".

One shouldn't draw that conclusion by looking at other devices (running other distros).

A single missing one line line patch or broken driver can considerably mess up daily usability.

@purism @agx It runs so well on this! It never misses a frame! Whoever made the rendering of the top and bottom drawers, let them know they did a great job. Literally all other apps have choppy irregular low FPS, but the #Phosh UI is super smooth.

I always thought it would be too heavy, but nope. Not at all.

So my spouses iPhone has stopped receiving calls, and is seems that when she calls folks, it goes straight to voicemail. So naturally, I joined Apple's community Matrix channel and their devs helped to fix the problem.

No wait sorry, that's what I do with @purism when my #librem5 has issues (which for the record, it makes and receives calls/SMS/MMS just fine).

What will likely happen is a perfectly good phone goes in the trash because of some software bug.

Breaking the phone you plan to demo with is always fun.

Fixing it, even more so!
Just need a keyboard and run 1 command.

2 hours to go

I'm a bit concerned about the frequent power losses at the hotel though :D

I'll add image descriptions later, need to work on my slides :P
and need to go for a swim!
