controversial technology opinion 

I seem to be in the minority here but a web page should be able to load its content without needing JavaScript. If your page only loads an empty wireframe without JavaScript, you’ve failed at the web. Bare minimum, load the fucking content.

Hello fellow mobianistas, hope you are still enjoying your devices. We are working hard to improve our installer to be able to properly encrypt your disks.
