Re: It's the final countdown!

Sorry if I did not express myself clearly. "May easily diverge" = "Is guaranteed to diverge at some point, unless we include measures to prevent it".

Re: It's the final countdown!

It can't be. A true SI is completely independent. Capable of making its own judgements and decisions. Otherwise it would not be SI.

Re: Sailfish 3.0.0.5 Lemmenjoki EA

That's not how I read carlosgonz's post. It sounded like, "embrace the brave new world of SFOS 3, whatever it brings". But I could be wrong.

To be honest, I am sitting on the fence (for the...

Re: It's the final countdown!

All you say, endso, may be absolutely right.

Yet, given a choice between being ruled by a super-intelligent despotic AI with an impeccable logic and by what we now call a "democracy" but is de...

Re: [poll] Sailfish ambiences popularity

Re: [poll] Sailfish ambiences popularity

No such thing. I had three shortcuts: Settings ,Camera, and Phone. "Add shortcut" was greyed out. Deleted all three, now "Add shortcut" opens the launcher. No "Silence" to be found. Do I need a patch?

There was mute in the lock screen pulley menu before SFOS 3? :eek:

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

A move I can only recommend. 3.0 is highly overrated. On the other hand, while 3.0 did not fix any of the bugs introduced in 2.1 and 2.2, it may be worth pointing out that it was 2.1 and 2.2 that...
