CAPITAL F, creative commons magazine about Free software
Bryan Lunduke just posted it on his Patreon. Cool project!
Talks about "The road to a free software phone", "Video production with free software", "The stigma of charging for free software", "a personal journey w/ free software" & "replacing Google w/ free software"
@ChrisTalleras I was mostly interested in reading about de-googling your phone. But it seems like there's no safe way to do that. He only wrote about failed projects that was aiming at crating free cell-phones I guess? No phone like it available now and even if the new one shows up, it's probably gonna vanish soon after just like any other did?
@deerbard Yeah, it's quite expensive. But right now I am using my phone as my laptop since what a laptop is used for a phone can already do power wise, I just connect a keyboard, mouse & sceen to it through a USB hub. Maybe even a mobile touch screen. That is the plan at least.
I am also sure Purism will have products in different price ranges. And looking the campaign where they brought in 2.5 million I would say it's already going good heheh
@ChrisTalleras @deerbard LineageOS minus Google is an option that has been mentioned already, but if LineageOS is too "new" for your phone, there are usually other custom ROMs sans Google available on the XDA-Developers website. Have you looked? Just because Lineage is popular doesn't mean it's the only option.
If you use your phone as a laptop, consider putting #linux on it :)
@thinkMoult Lineage seems just not to work with my phone though it's got older ones on the list. I'm a bit scared to try not popular things. I know too little and need something I can rely on and not worry about destroying my phone while I can't afford a new one. I'm rather waiting for a popular option available for me. And for now I think I'm good with just as many google services switched off as I can. It's still an improvement. I'm a dinosaur. I learn sth new about technology every day now :)
@kelbot Yeah, me too. I'm using the liferea client. RSS is a very new thing for me though, started using it just recently and didn't really know anyone use it before then. Using it now I can't believe I've not used it before. One thing I hate is having check a bunch of websites for if something has happened.
