Re: Gemini PDA (the return of the Psion Series 5MX)

Hm, maybe a link-up with Purism to make a Librem 5 variant in the Gemini form factor? ;)

Re: Recommended VPN services for Sailfish?

Over on the Purism Librem thread there was a mention (http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p=1549411&postcount=469) of Purist VPN. I have no idea of how well it works with Sailfish OS, but if you want...

Re: Sailfish Android version update

With respect to messaging/communication, it seems to me that matrix (https://matrix.org/) is the best hope at the moment, even if it isn't quite there yet. Unfortunately the most comfortable way to...

Re: Sailfish Android version update

I agree completely with these sentiments: IMO Sailfish will never make it into the mainstream as an Android alternative without Android app support at least for the medium term.

Maybe you would...

Re: Purism Librem Phone

IIUC what will be possible with the Librem 5 + PureOS, that is not possible with SailfishOS, is this: if the Librem-developed UI (likely a spin of Gnome or KDE) turns out to be inadequate, it will be...

Re: Purism Librem Phone

Yes, and this is at least partly because parts of Sailfish are not (yet) open source, and need input from overworked Jolla devs to integrate new features properly. I'm guessing that this won't be a...
