Re: 2.2.0 EA / Mouhijoki

What did they do to the gallery? This is so bad. No longer touch friendly, several ways to achieve the same thing, ugly, ... Who on earth is responsible for this?

Also, what is this so called...

Re: MWC2018 news

It's secure from their partners' point of view. Just as it's 'full open source' only from their partners' point of view.

Re: SailfishOS on Nokia 3310 (2017)

Is it? I didn't do any scientific comparison of course, but I had used my XperiaX with Android a few weeks before SailfishX became available. I remember I felt Sailfish was smoother than Android on...

Re: SailfishOS on Nokia 3310 (2017)

Actually... does it really matter much which brand it is? Isn't it more exciting how they managed to make a UI designed for touch screens work on such a device?

Also, I'd be very interested to...

Re: Jolla - alike, or how Jolla adopted the Google's anti-open-source practices.

It just so happens that their agenda is pretty close to my personal needs. And that's what it's all about, right? Everybody should choose what suits him best. For my brother, that's the iPhone...

Re: Jolla - alike, or how Jolla adopted the Google's anti-open-source practices.

You have either not read or not understood the article the OP linked to in the first post.

Also, what software you use on Sailfish is pretty much up to you.

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

I looked for the exact link but didn't find it, but IIRC James commented on blog.jolla.com that it's most likely we'll have to wait until 2018.

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

It's very unlikely, but just as a reminder: In 2014 they released Vaarainjärvi on Dec 18th. So... never say never. :)

Re: New: Jolla/Sailfish in Latin America

Would make sense to have a ref design close to the Xperia X... This way, the whole work on the Xperia port would also serve a commercial purpose.

I share your concerns about SailfishOS as a whole not being redistributable.

However, I never considered anonymity the main selling point. It might be for you, personally, but each of us is...

Where did you get that from? Any secret sources? (It might have been of course, but that's either some secret information from Jolla - or speculation.)

I'd say that's highly unlikely because the...

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Dear lazyweb, have they ever explained why they start "selling" it before there's a chance to download it? I mean... why would anybody pay on Sept. 27th if I can as well pay on Oct 11th?

That they don't mention it at all (blog, press release) is incredible. Yes, it's not a Jolla product, but the Sony Xperia isn't either. If it runs an officially licensed SailfishOS, they should...
