Well, I'm going to jump in with both feet to see if I cannot make a Nexus5 running Ubuntu Touch my daily driver. I will have to modify much of my behavior but I am willing if the reward is to be rid of android and google. Thanks for your help. I will be sharing my progress on Mastodon and maybe we can inspire others to give it a go.
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
