@bamfic No this is a developer edition which I received as a developer for postmarketOS. Brave Heart is indeed shipping in January afaik.
@bart Have you used Ubuntu Touch before? If so, how do you compare postmarketOS to it?
@epifn I have but not on the PinePhone, only on a Nexus 5 and OnePlus One. Atm, Ubuntu Touch is more useful for end-users, but I personally don't really like it.
It's too far off a regular Linux distro, for example it has a read-only file system and you can't update with `apt-get`. Also, way too many apps are in fact Electron apps which I absolutely hate.
I prefer SailfishOS really, but that has the problem of being a proprietary hell.
@bart Well, to me Ubuntu Touch feels like a "real" smartphone OS, but I see that you prefer a regular Linux distro.
Anyway, it's pretty cool to see so many Linux options for the smartphone. Let's hope in a few years it will be a viable option for a daily driver.
@epifn Oh yeah everybody has it's preferences. I can definitely see the appeal of having a read-only file system and stuff, I just don't want it myself 😉
The plan is to have it viable as a daily driver sooner than a few years though, hopefully somewhere next year even!
@pea Honestly, most people should wait for the full release (which is probably somewhere in March). At least all hardware kinks will be worked out by then, and the software will be much further along.
@bart vim on a touch kb? *dies*
@efi Ok to be fair, that isn't installed by default, it's just what I install by default ;) It's nice to be able to use Vim when I SSH into my phone
@bart ah, that makes much more sense lol
