@purism @Purism While I'm all for decentralisation and moving away from malicious corporate entities, I don't really like how it's made to seem as if every service on librem.one is something made by Purism. The technical specifications do say what protocol is being used but not the underlying software and I think that's an underhanded way to go about it.
At least say LibremSocial is Mastodon, LibremTunnel is PIA, LibremMail is any old mail server with tight GPG integration & K-9 Mail from Android, and that LibremFiles and Contacts will, I assume, be Nextcloud.
I really don't like people that come along, take a good open source project, rebrand it, and pass it off as their own. Transparency is a good thing and I don't really see any on the front page of https://librem.one
If you were operating this as a non-profit, that would one thing. It's an entirely different matter to be making money from free software without giving credit where credit is due.
#OWS are the Apple of chat apps. Their software is based on a #FreeCode core, but the packaged #Signal app is effectively proprietary software, because you're not allowed to compile it yourself and connect that binary to their servers. The Signal service is effectively proprietary because you're not allowed to use third-party clients with it. Like Apple, they use "open source" in all the ways that benefit themselves, not the ways that respect user freedoms.
