Re: It's the final countdown!

What are you on about, Dave? Natural selection applies everywhere. Young, old, alive or dead. Why do you think we have a duopoly of just two mobile OSes? Natural selection!

Even if the dominant...

Efficient or not, depends on whom you ask.

Of course no one really knows when sex was invented but chances are it was a very, very long time ago. Possibly even before, but certainly at least very...

Nah. As long as aliens come in two sexes, and I have every reason to believe that they do, then they would know everything there is to know about how marriage works

You are not my wife, you are an imposter. Otherwise you would have known that "whatever I do" has nothing to do with it. Everything is my fault, not only the narrow range of things that I do :D

Re: It's the final countdown!

I can honestly say that I have never heard of any of the "definitions" or uses for b-tard used there. The only use I have ever come across was the one endso refers to.

Re: Nokia N900 as external usb soundcard.

Dunno, but it can work as a DLNA client. Have you considered that option?

Re: Purism Librem Phone

Like that of the Linux kernel?[/QUOTE]

Or Sailfish system updates?

Sorry, it was impossible to resist. It is an age-old bugbear of mine :)

Re: Purism Librem Phone

You are right. Adroid, Sailfish, Maemo etc are designed specifically for mobiles and have the size of UI controls modified to be usable comfortably. Then they can use a normal, 1:1 pixel mapping for...

Re: Purism Librem Phone

Yes, sulu, but would you call desktop UI on the N900 "usable"?

Maemo uses text size from 40 upwards. Buttons 60 pixels high (I do not remember the exact details but I do not think I am too far...

Re: Last straw with me and continuing with Windows

Thank you, much appreciated. Really.

Also, hence my apology. It was not meant to be a broadside. I could sense that I was not getting my point across and was just trying harder. Perhaps too hard....

Re: Purism Librem Phone

In layman terms, a zoom in.

Given the screen size and resolution, UI controls such as buttons, edit boxes, menu and description text etc would be unreadable. For example you would end up with 1mm...

Still, someone, somewhere, at some point, gave a lot of money to Sony.

Re: Ok, I've already decided. I want to buy a Jolla 1. Does anyone sell one?

I can think of at least two reasons:
1. He/she/it already has (https://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?p=1546980#post1546980) an Xperia X
2. He/she/it would prefer something with a better support...

This trend is not unique to Microsoft, though. Gone are the times when companies at least pretended to care about making things better/easier/more convenient for the customer. Now all they do is make...

Haha, very funny.



Thanks. I had looked at Soco before but it did not tick the "not prohibitively expensive" box. At 2,349, it is still within that territory, but not too deep. I cannot...
