@krille @ubports Yep, soon-ish. Might be a matter of days only, depending how busy i am (or if someone else makes it first). Already talked to the @AsteroidOS people, and they were pretty excited! You can already find a config for the LG G Watch R here: https://github.com/ubports/installer-configs/blob/master/v1/lenok.json
Also: PR's welcome :)
But Yeah, things in the installer are heating up, and i love it! Been dreaming of having an abundance of devices and operating systems in there for a while and now it's just around the corner. :)
@Vamp898 @ubports The advantage is that it's a completely open-source system (except for drivers) and basically normal Ubuntu like you know it from the desktop. Gives us a little more independence from the bit players and more control over our devices. Google is moving more and more important parts over to the proprietary google mobile services, and we can't be sure how much of a future AOSP has with Fuchsia/Zirkon coming along.
Ubuntu Touch maybe isn't for everyone yet, but it's getting there!
Also Fuchsia is, like AOSP, completely Free/OpenSource
So the main advantage is that it is like a normal Ubuntu, but (I guess) with the disadvantage that it doesn't run Android Apps
@a1batross @ubports @NeoTheThird
Linux is just the kernel, that's like 1% of Android, also nobody cares about the kernel source. Neither Samsung nor Sony are really interested in the kernel, they have their proprietary drivers and that's all they care about. You can't run a stable AOSP on any non Google device, even tough Linux is GPL. Having an GPL Kernel helps nothing.
Google is not interested in making Fuchsia non Free either.
Every vendor every time can block you from installing Linux on your Desktop.
Every Hard disk and every CPU contains non free software.
I understand your point, I just say its from theoretic nature. In the end, we are all slaves from hardware manufacturer and they decide if we are able to install free software, since the beginning of free software.
@jordan31 @ubports No, not yet, it's still a community port made by a couple motivated people from the community. Most things seem to be working, but it doesn't have a stable release yet. Might come with the next OTA, we'll see. There might be a couple community ports maturing over the next half a year, btw. Lots of things happening over at halium.org, and we've been doing some work to get rid of some blocking issues.
@jordan31 @ubports Forum is always a good place to hang out. You can also check out some halium docs, especially if you're intending to be more involved: http://docs.halium.org/en/latest/supplementary/devices/index.html
For everything else, be sure to follow @ubports to get all the latest updates. If we adopt a new stable device, you'll definitely hear about it!
