The General Purpose Computer In Your Pocket

"What makes the Librem 5 special is that it reclaims the full potential of what phones should have been all along: a general-purpose computer in your pocket under your control."

#phosh 0.6.0 is out 🚀 :

Besides more fixes for docked mode, the most visible change is @exalm 's work to close apps by swiping up. This needs #libhandy 1.0.2.

The General Purpose Computer In Your Pocket

"One of the neatest tricks Big Tech ever pulled was convincing people that phones weren’t general-purpose computers and should have different rules than laptops or desktops. These rules conveniently give the vendor more control so that you don’t own a smartphone so much as you rent it."

Major performance improvements coming to the #PinePhone thanks to work by Ondrej Jirman (megi).

@kde on
@postmarketOS, but the fix will benefit all OSes.

Also, can we make a point of always calling it Microsoft from now on please? Thanks.

@purism I improved keyboard navigation in #phosh a bit so the #librem5 becomes more fun to use when docked:

I am really pleased with how well Mobian is working on the #pinephone.

Its not perfect but its good to go.

What is not quite good to go, its the surrounding apps. The camera is still a bit glitchy and needs work, but its happening fairly quickly and works good enough for most things.

Mobians firefox tweaks aren’t as good as pmOS’s tweaks, I wish they would just take pmOS’s tweaks. Or, even better, get a webbrowser that’s actually designed for a phone working. The one on mobian kinda works, but its slow painfully slow compared to firefox DESKTOP somehow.. ugh.

The navigation software is terrible and unstable. I need this, unfortunately.

There is just a lot of missing software — being fair, mobile phone (real) linux is brand new and its still in its infancy. There really just aren’t many coders actually making mobile apps yet.

Like, niceties such as fedi software aren’t there yet, not really. There was one but it was just a web thing — pointless.

Complaints aside, this is progressing much faster than I had anticipated.

For me, I need 1) Working navigation, 2) CCDA for pinephone :blobthumbsup:
