Re: Rostelecom investment in Jolla

There's a different flair to either approach. One is a flowery, yet heavy-handed approach that hides behind words like democracy, freedom and all of those PR based illusionary words that sound great...

This an EA release or just release to general public?

Unfortunately it looks like that it was an idea left to inaction.

Re: What have former N900 owners moved to?

Hmm... too many to count:

N900 > Samsung Captivate > N9 > BB Z10 > Nexus 5 (custom ROM) > Nexus 6 > iPhone 7 > iPhone 8 > Jolla C > iPhone X

Re: Youyota Tablet Contact

Called it.



Agree.

In the end, somewhere between 2010 and 2018, some folks have genuine use cases for a tablet. As a creative, I am one of them. However, I've lost almost all use cases for...

I know you're catching flak for saying that there's no need for a tablet - which I disagree - but I have different uses than you. In fact, there seems to be many millions that have disagreed with...

Re: Youyota Tablet Contact

Unfortunate turn of events; does not bode well for the backers.

I won't center blame on Chen; however it seems as if better communication from the start was the request and it never truly happened.

Re: Hackathons ...good or bad? 2 sociologists came to a conclusion and it ain't good.

You know... I have never backed down from ever admitting where I could possibly be wrong.

So here I am stating just that. You guys are the best kind of right, you are undeniably correct.

Re: Hackathons ...good or bad? 2 sociologists came to a conclusion and it ain't good.

In theory, yes. But that's not what I've observed thus far.



I think we're looking at it two different ways. You've decided to embed yourself in the minutiae of FOSS whereas it is important for...

Exactly this. I find it somewhat disappointing; however far too many people want to just watch the world burn for their own enjoyment.

Re: Hackathons ...good or bad? 2 sociologists came to a conclusion and it ain't good.

You know... sorta like how FOSS meritocracy was supposed to work. Either it's bad, worse, or can be publicly shown how to do it right.

I feel that it's a better approach than rank skepticism with...

If it's so bad, then perhaps we need to show them how it could be good.

Re: Is it helpfull for us? Kali Linux now available for download from Microsoft Store

Thanks. I guess I'm looking for a truly equally functioning device in regards to telephony, application support optimized with what I'd expect the N900 out of the box if it were retail.

Re: Is it helpfull for us? Kali Linux now available for download from Microsoft Store

TIL. But I have to ask; beyond the PowerVR stuff, this means that it's largely open now? Flash that, you have a fully functioning device?

Please forgive my ignorance. Just found out about this.

Re: Is it helpfull for us? Kali Linux now available for download from Microsoft Store

Not helpful to you, but it exposes a new generation of users to Linux. That taste of freedom might grow into a hunger down the line.
