I dunno, I feel like the LibremOne news is being overhyped.

Talk is a fork of Riot
Mail is a fork of K9
Social is a fork of Tusky
Tunnel is PIA white-labelled

I see nothing new or innovative here, what am I missing?

@kev @amolith I think the story is the cloud service, not the apps.

@sean @amolith@masto.nixnet.xyz maybe that the piece I’m missing here? But if they’re just setting up a matrix, imap, Mastodon and a white-labelled vpn service, I still fail to see the innovation here?

@kev @amolith I don't think the point is "innovation" per se, but more "we're setting up a cloud service you pay for with currency rather than personal data and ad views."

My initial reaction was that I do all of that stuff for myself anyway (though for considerably more money than they are charging per month). Still, I'm not their target market which I think is people who would rather not use Google, but don't have the tech skills to self-host all of those services.


@sean @amolith@masto.nixnet.xyz yeah, that’s an interesting perspective. Maybe I’m being a little too harsh.
