Lately I've seen some incorrect statements and facts about Linux on mobile being thrown around, and I decided to write a blog post to give some more correct info. Please give it a read 😄

If you see any mistakes I've made, please correct me!

@bart Good write-up! I'm definitely guilty of being unclear about os/de, especially in the case of Plasma Mobile. But especially since the birth of Postmarket OS, this distinction is becoming more important.

Something i also see frequently is Ubuntu Touch being referred to by the name of the organization behind it (UBports) or some of the old names Canonical had for it (Ubuntu Phone, Ubuntu for Devices, Ubuntu Mobile). But you got it right :)

@bart Looking at the date, i realize that exactly that day i gave two talks at #36c3 where i was unclear about exactly this :D

Am i big-headed to assume that this post was written for me, or was it just a funny coincidence? ^^


@NeoTheThird Just a funny coincidence haha. I've actually written it in respond to someone/something else, but I won't mention it to prevent any fight from breaking out 😜
