I don't post much on social media anymore. Why? It drains my attention and has a whole bunch of other negative side-effects: ledger.humanetech.com/

In fact, I think free software projects should rely less on social media and we should try with Linux Mobile to be the prime example of giving users not only control of their whole software stack but also of their attention.

For a 39 minute verbose version of this statement, see my FOSDEM talk: fosdem.org/2022/schedule/event

Did you notice that rather than on PC where you download a generic image which you can just live boot from USB, on ARM every distro needs to support every device individually? It's not just lacking mainline Linux support, it's also lacking a generic way to boot these devices like x86 has. #SPIflash can solve this perfectly by implementing UEFI on a dedicated chip but current new @PINE64 devices are lacking this. Let's get loud to make them add this again in new devices!

In this image: 3 different types of devices all running some form of #KDE #Plasma and some form of #AlpineLinux:

- the laptop, a #System76 machine, running Alpine Linux with the latest Plasma Desktop
- the TV, a #rockpro64 from #Pine64, running #postmarketOS with #PlasmaBigscreen
- the smartphone, a #Librem5, running #postmarketOS with #plasmamobile

Can't wait for my smartwatch next! 😜
