I'm actively recruiting volunteer devs for a native Signal / Signal-like client in Gtk, in the hopes that we can bring it to the @Purism Librem 5 phone. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.

Signal serves a "bridging" purpose: users who are currently in the privacy/digital rights space will expect it to run or have to use two phones (making long-term commitment to Purism very unlikely). This is especially true for our early adopters.
We can't tackle network effects overnight and force people into our choice of E2EE client.
