There should be no barriers to life-saving knowledge. Thankfully publishers are doing the right thing and making COVID-19 research open access https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/03/embracing-open-science-medical-crisis-0
- a newly installed instance is "open for public" by default. Imho, this is just crazy from a legal pov.

- setting up a "secured domain" seems complicated and did not work for me (yet).
Given these, it's hard for me to give an unrestricted recommendation for it.
@PINE64 Happy new year!
Background: I am designing a poster and need a clipart of a laptop and tablet. I would love to avoid the typical art that mimics apple hardware and use pine64 hardware instead.
I would love to leave the x86 legacy behind and start into the new decade with a modern ARM64-based laptop!
I first sent them my invoice and a link to the shop but they were still not convinced. Now, I also supplied them with a screenshot from my online banking and hope they will finally process it.

New challenges for Free Software business models https://www.schiessle.org/articles/2019/11/17/new-challenges-for-free-software-business-models/ via @bjoern
This is indeed a very interesting and critical aspect of free software. I watched an excellent talk about more or less exactly the same topic at FrOSCon this year. The speaker presented quite a few more models and discussed their limitations.
Not sure if you've seen it as well? In case you didn't, here's the reference:
November blog post is up! Pinebook Pro, PinePhone, PineTime... even the PineTab! We've got news on all of it.
- great aes-xts-performance (~350 MB/s)
- great usb3-sata-performance (~280 MB/s)
- surprisingly low idle power consumption (~0.5W on the rock64, ~1W on the h64)
Overall: Great hardware, but does not work ootb like A64 yet.
