Are you a programmer, software engineer, or developer? What are your thoughts on FOSS / FLOSS ideologies? I share my thoughts here, and I genuinely would like to discuss it with people:
So installing /e/ or Lineage OS on the Fairphone 2 has been a bust. The system folder is not accessible because I haven't rooted the phone. I thought this would not be the case. However, trying to search for ways to root the phone is coming up with nothing concrete. What a pain. I was really interested in seeing /e/ in action as well.
@todd Just wanted to say that you guys are really crushing it. I am going on year 2 of ownership with my L13v3 and I find that I appreciate it more every day. Really well made solid construction. I really am looking forward to everything you guys come out with. Keep up the great work!
My problem with Switching Social and its efforts, is not that it isn't helpful to those looking to rid themselves of Google, etc. but rather that it makes assumptions about what to list and what qualifies. Their browser options for example are a good example. If you think that Firefox and derivatives of it are the only solutions, you are being hugely misinformed.
This is why violently opposing them only gives their pathetic cause more attention that it wouldn't normally get. Also if violence is the answer, then the subjective nature of people's rational is given a free pass to drive opinion and discussion using fear.
Feeling a little down? Need a pick me up? Aces High - Iron Maiden makes just about everything better.
@elementary One thing I especially love about Elementary OS, is that applications actually open in the same state as they were closed. This means my browser does not need to be resized or un-maximized, like it does on every other Linux distro I've tried. It's the little things!
Have you been thinking about making an app for the Librem 5 but didn't know where to start?
I wrote a tutorial blog post for getting started with designing apps for GNOME mobile (and desktop too).
"We have enormous freedom. That’s not a gift that was given to us, it’s a legacy that was left to us by centuries of struggle. By centuries of people that most of whose names are completely forgotten, the ones who created the freedom and the rights we now have, and that will be taken away unless you constantly defend them."
