Re: First thoughts concerning Plasma Mobile and Ubuntu Touch on Nexus 5

Re: 2.2.0 EA / Mouhijoki

Hi. I have the original Jolla tablet I bought from Taobao. I'm a little confused about what you wrote. Did you mean to not be afraid of doing a factory reset? Thanks!

Re: Purism Librem Phone

I didn't buy the developer kit. No time to mess around at this stage. Apparently they are still on schedule for Jan 2019. I am glad if that is the case. But I have low expectations for a polished...

Re: It's the final countdown!

I think that Nokia should release a special 10th year anniversary version of the n900 with up to date specs. That would be something to truly celebrate!

I think writing code can be an artform in itself. Whether its how the code is layed out or the logic. Can be a thing of beauty. All done using a terminal!
