What a true innovation looks like with limited resources and imagination !!!

I just imagined an ordinary layman scratching his head, asking "what is a linux desktop computer?"

With Maru OS being recently opensourced, that would be just an amazing addition do SfOS ... anyone disagree? Combining Sailfish, sfdroid layer and Maru OS capabilities we'd have the ultimate tool in our pocket.

I disagree. It seems like overkill to run a chroot under sfdroid when you can run a chroot directly under Sailfish. We've all been doing this for years with EasyDebian on N900s and N9s. The only difference is the need for XWayland on Sailfish which javispedro already ported. I still fail to see what's so innovative about Maru OS other than a pretty website plus emphasis on HDMI-out. As far as I've been able to tell, it's all Debian under the bonnet so even the name Maru OS is a joke.

I am not suggesting to run a chroot under sfdroid. I am saying having this opensourced with tremendous interest and possibly soon resources available, SfOS w all the above would be the mobile OS we have been wishing for since the Maemo 3. Sure EasyDebian on N900 was great, but kinda failed to translate to a broader success. I believe having SfOS able to be installed and hopefully seriously supported on a wide variety of until recently 4ndroidy hw opens for all of us the most amazing oportunities, which at times of N900 being the only HW we could only dream of.

The first note on true innovation was about how a single person identifies a need and takes on addressing it, not hesitating in open sourcing it, which is exactly what we need to move forward.

With all the hardware around it's finally time for Jolla to let go of the own hw and focus solely on the OS development and integration/support with the hw producers. The HW is out there, the serious interest as well ... should the new enlightened Nokia allow SfOS at least in the way Sony is trying, we'd have the most amazing slam dunk in mobile os space.

There's an interview with the author in Linux Luddites #76 at about the 1:22 mark. Not sure how much useful extra information there is there, but might be worth a listen if you're keeping an eye on the project.

MaruOS is surprisingly fast. The idea to 'beam' and 'hold' the desktop using hdmi out on the fly while you just see your underlying mobile operating system is not bad and somehow different from what i have seen before.
