“Overall, there definitely has been increased interest towards #SailfishOS as a mobile OS platform in different parts of the world, partly triggered by the on-going political activity in many locations. We have also had clearly more discussions with e.g. Chinese device manufacturers, and Jolla has also recently started new corporate and governmental customer projects in Europe.” - #Jolla co-founder and CEO Sami Pienimäki

I've been running #SailfishOS - an alternative mobile #Linux OS - on a new #XperiaXA2 for several weeks and am very pleased with it. Can definitely be used as a daily driver and the XA2 battery lasts for days. Support an alternative to #Android and #iOS. #privacy #controlyourdata #jolla https://sailfishos.org
