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

That much I had surmised. I guess my statement about the old hardware is more of a situation of why is this site so fixated on older hardware. It should be treated as rhetorical.

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

Re: No network in Sailfish after running out of credit

Re: Latest And Greatest!

Sorry, but I'm a maker and I found the expansion of art and creation into AR/MR/VR exciting.

A lot more exciting and adventurous than the same old stuff being peddled with a slightly better...

Re: Chrome OS Will Run Linux Apps

Nostalgia does seem to paint a rosier picture oftentimes.

You'd think that future iterations of technology would have learned how to accomplish things in a better way.

Re: Youyota Tablet Contact

Well dang. I had high hopes, exercised caution, showed optimism only for it to fail.

Personally, this probably will be my very last attempt to support any of these kind of endeavors. If it is not...

Re: Chrome OS Will Run Linux Apps

We disagree here. A true duopoly exists over the majority of users and devices whereas prior attempts have mostly been failures, soon to fail, or will fail sooner than later. Such is the case as...

Re: GPD Pocket

I'm not desperate enough to sink money on a device from a company that has no history that I can find quickly on the Internet. That rules out the OneMix for me.

Re: Nintendo Switch Runs Linux

Naw. I remember those days very well. I got Linux on my Compaq iPaq 2210, my 1st Gen 5GB Apple iPod, so forth. Was fun while it lasted - putting Linux everywhere.
