"Libqmycroft aims to bring the same #mycroft extension capability to traditional input desktop / mobile applications that want to add support for a voice interface without having each application to go through writing their own web-socket / dbus interface to establish a communication layer with Mycroft."

Did you know supports a few smartwatches? Well, now you do!

However, up till now we didn't have a proper UI for them. Since I put a lot of work in the Mer stack to get it running for , it was only a few more packages to get up and running on as well!

Before I started working on I was a (relatively happy) 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.

Reminder of why #Signal is far from optimal:

- No #anonymity (every account is connected to a phone number)
- Not #opensource (the git repo of the server hasn't been updated in a year)
- No #decentralization
- No web client, and max. 1 mobile client per account
- No #privacy (your entire contact list is uploaded to the server. It's encrypted, but it's trivial to brute-force encrypted phone numbers. You can prevent it by disabling the PIN feature, but it's enabled by default without warning.)

That moment when your Mastodon instance was unreachable for a month by your reverse proxy even though it was running fine and the machines could reach each other, and it's suddenly fixed when fixing some other completely unrelated problem on your server.

Love it, computers == 🌈
