@bigl0af Which one? Ive got a Neo Freerunner GTA02 in a drawer.
@bigl0af GTA01 and GTA02 totally shipped!
Their not great phones honestly especially by modern standards.
Community even put together a GTA04 model a few years back. Being made in small batches out of germany.
@bigl0af semi complete free software android port for the GTA04 here https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/GTA04
@bigl0af What happened with purism?
@bigl0af @astheroth People aren't raging about their phone so much as the cloud platform they're pushing. The apps used for it are rebranded forms of open source software that aren't good as attributing their origins. The "thought police" bit comes from the fact that they forked Mastodon for their own instance and aren't going to be as strict with their rules as others would like.
Not difficult, and not required either. How many Drupal or WordPress websites without attribution? Mail servers ? Do mastodon, fedilab, pixelfed, nextcloud, pleroma,... advertise prominently "made thanks to Python/Php/Rust/Go/whatever"? Or "powered by GNU/Linux, Docker, Lxc,..." ? No, they don't. Because it's not required, and it would be completely impractical.
@trashHeap I didn’t know about this one. Will see how it progresses
@trashHeap Linux device makers/pipedreamers seem to forget an important point why Linux worked in the first place: it was inexpensive (or even free), packed more punch than the competition and it was ready & usable. Pine64 seems to get it.
Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
