Quick notice: I'll be on holiday (🇸🇪/🇳🇴 hopefully) for the next two weeks, so (probably) no news from TuxPhones.com for a while, I'm sorry :(

A feature I might add to TuxPhones.com soon is a unified database of what smartphones are supported by what projects (pmOS etc) to allow even relatively inexperienced users to find out whether their device can already boot some sort of , and in what state (alpha/usable/...).
As such feature might potentially take a while to implement, do you believe it will be an effectively useful resource also for inexperienced users or not really?

Votes, but also detailed opinions welcome.

Thank you!
