hey peeps, can i ask a favour? gimme some feedback on the new postmarketOS kernel on the op6! is 5.16 running ok for you? any bug? we want to get them fixed so we can backport it to the new v21.12 release of @postmarketOS.

In this picture from left to right: , , . Now I have all 3 of them, I might do a blog post to write down my initial thoughts between all of them

(yes I received a Librem 5 yesterday from someone that had it gathering dust, a day after receiving a PinePhone Pro. I feel so lucky!)

First thing first after receiving my : finishing our initial port. Done!

Secondly: getting all distros to collaborate on a shared kernel in the space with the goal to start upstreaming stuff! The current kernel situation is quite a mess, and we have to do the same with the original

My arrived! Good timing together with switching to ModemManager. Maybe I can actually use this as a daily driver at some point?

Check out @kde #PlasmaMobile Gear 21.12! This release packs tons of new features and apps, improvements to performance and stability, revamped interface designs, and much more.

Highlights to look forward to: gPodder syncing in Kasts, MMS support in Spacebar, and the migration from oFono to ModemManager.

Here it is peeps, #Linux 5.16-rc1 + @postmarketOS up and running on the @shiftphones SHIFT6mq. Most things seem to work (including the modem) But unfortunately WiFi is having some issues.

Thanks a lot to @glundner (@shiftphones) for bringing up initial touch and display support.

This is afaic the crux of Drew's point.

For me, FLOSS is about working *together* to make things better to empower the users of the software.
I think that's also what Drew means.

Android is wholly controlled by G👀gle for the benefit of G👀gle.
They have no interest in (furthering) the freedom of their users, quite the contrary.

I abandoned chromium as that has the same problem. While several projects try to remove the worst part of it, it'll always be a losing battle.

Drew DeVault: "Android may be Linux in implementation, but it’s about as far from the spirit of free software as you can get."

I've merged a small user experience improvement which will benefit both @kde Plasma Desktop and @plasmamobile "About device" pages on ARM devices: . It will now show proper CPU name instead of blank line.

I just learned @calebccff has a Liberapay profile and I'm now buying them a weekly cup of coffee for their awesome work in mainlining devices on !
Please show your support so they can get more OnePlus devices to mainline and continue their awesome work!

A merge request was made for initial support for the #Fairphone4 just minutes after the device was announced, I think that is the quickest we got support for a device ever! And it's even (barebones) #mainline Linux!
