Don't use @purism's Librem One services...
Just gotta wait until Todd Weaver himself cries that taking security seriously is despotic now.
@Jo I can't wait!... 😬
"thought they were a hardware company"
... with the exception of PureOS? ???
"FOSS world ... higher standards"
Are these defined somewhere? Is there a standards committee? ;-)
Is Purism somehow violating copyleft somewhere?
"regular business practices"
I don't have a clue what you're trying to imply here? rebranding? subscription charges? paid employees? ???
This includes to take stance against hate speech and give full recognition to the creators of their software.
I all for free speech... but free speech does not include harassment. Harassment is the opposite of free speech.
I am also one of those who cheered on them... but this stuff makes me hesitate.
You just made me look at https://librem.one page again..... and nowhere is an acknowledgement!
They even start with this message.. "Purism is a Social Purpose Corporation (SPC), which means we put social good above exploiting people. Librem One is a bundle of services—chat, vpn, email, social, and more—from Purism, SPC."
I think their target audience for Librem One are non-technical, for which the "based on" probably wouldn't matter and might just give confusion.
As a developer, the only thing that matters is the adherence to the copyleft in the repository. If I want to brag on it, I can do that on my own.
It is stated and explained here:
And yes, it could be much more visible. As could be the apks for download. At least their Tusky version is now on fdroid. Where are the links to their source-repos?
@skynebula The tracker issue is then probably an issue for the upstream app. But this needs more details.
@flussence @purism Oh, come on. I am not defending their software services here, but they are taking excruciating pains to get us a phone as deblobbed as possible. E.g. it will contain a dedicated 2nd modem where electricity can actually be shut off, rather than using the built in modem in the baseband chip which cannot be controlled this way. Calling that a scam is tough. And what is a scam in federation without moderation? Their TOS are clear, you don't like it, don't use it.
@spaetz I don't recall inviting your opinion
@flussence Sorry, but posting in a public social medium has the tendency to invite others' opinions. And while I have answered in an impersonal and factual manner, you resort to condescending insults. Sucks to have a crack in your echo chamber? Have a very nice day, Sir.
