Did you know that you can check out source code for things Purism works on (such as Librem One applications and bits relating to the upcoming Librem 5 smartphone) right from https://source.puri.sm?
Source code should be Free.
That's just how we roll.

"Nothing I found quite hit that sweet spot. ...but then a colleague suggested I look into Purism. I fell in love and bought a Librem 13. It's been so great."
this talk by @mako last year on how the tools of free software have been co-opted in order to create freedom for companies instead of freedom for humans did a great job of bringing together a bunch of threads I've been following recently as well as pointing out new insights and ways forward.
highly recommended if you care about ways in which software can help people and are concerned about our work being subverted.

Political satirist Christine Prayon was awarded the 10,000 Euro Dieter Hildebrandt Prize of the City of #Munich and donated the prize money to the Free Software Foundation Europe. She used her thank-you speech to put the finger on one of Munich's sore spots and criticised Munich's switch back to proprietary systems. You can watch here thank-you speech now here https://peertube.social/videos/watch/ffee2223-f8e3-4cab-b513-1f9a602c23b1 (de) #LiMux #FreeSoftware #OpenSource #FSFE
"A common misconception when thinking of “Emacs as an OS” is to assume that Emacs special modes are re-inventing the wheel. They are not (for most of them), Emacs and its modes focus on the user interface side of things. The backends are almost always separate programs. This is precisely where the Unix philosophy still stands strong. Using Emacs as an interface for everything is merely equivalent to using GTK-only applications. (Only much better, obviously.) "
