Samsung announces at least 4 years of security updates for all #Galaxy products. You hear it right. Even for my mother-in-law's €150 Galaxy A20.

Google is a "cornerstone sponsor" of FOSDEM this year, which is being run entirely on Matrix, accessible on Android via Element, which has just been pulled from Google's Play Store. FOSDEM is in a week. This all makes perfect sense.
