For anyone who fancied the #Librem Five but are fed up with the developers politics, or found the price to be way too high, here is something that might be interesting for you: https://liliputing.com/2019/06/pinephone-149-linux-smartphone-could-support-ubuntu-sailfish-maemo-luneos-and-more.html #PinePhone #Pine64
@uint8_t I got a refund on my Librem 5 pre-order because I don't want Purism anywhere near me or my money anywhere near them. The PinePhone is gonna be my next phone now =D
@paulfree14 A more important concern would be the working conditions at their assembly line, for example. I have no information about that.
oportunism may lead to decisions that are defined by the circumstances indipendent form its moral.
meh, not so happy with this frame, but I guess you understand what I try to say.
@paulfree14 @uint8_t I'll be keeping a closer eye, that was unfortunate wording but I'm not going to write them off just yet... It's a weak response but they are a business and I appreciate they need to be cautious. I'd personally prefer a harder more clear stance but this isn't exactly hate apologism ~yet~.
As a competitor to Purism I really don't think a stronger political opposition could hurt at all. Would be great PR for them and promote more discussion about Purism's motives too right?
