Before I started working on #postmarketOS I was a (relatively happy) #SailfishOS user. However, after my Jolla Phone just became too slow for my taste I choose to move back to Android for my next phone rather than choosing another SFOS phone, and help out postmarketOS instead. The proprietary nature of SFOS scared me away.
I'm clearly not alone and this blogpost by our newest pmOS core team member lists a few reasons that also applied to me which is worth reading!
@bart I'm just learning about Sailfish to port Whisperfish away from it and I'm pretty amazed at how strange and badly documented the developer experience is. Did Jolla actually expect many independent developers to write applications with this? It seems to me that they don't care very much.
