I call it "client" but it's really more of a feed reader specialized on Youtube and opening videos in mpv so it allows you to watch videos from people you follow but nothing else. I wish it had better desktop support because it's exactly how I want to watch Youtube! :D

Big thanks to Schmiddiii (Github) for the amazing work!

My second mainline port (Xiaomi Mi 5) is in. Still quite early due to limited SoC support, but most basic things should work. Enjoy 🎉

The Nvidia Tegra kernel tree is moving quite fast (e.g., we pushed some changes to Fujitsu M532 / Asus Transformers just in the last days), so even 1 GB models are getting relatively usable.

This take (xda-developers.com/windows-11-) is hilarious.

Instead of bringing the average mobile device lifespan to the same level as that of computers, we should "change PCs as often as we do with phones to support the business model of hardware manufacturers"?

A gentle reminder that Windows 11 is nothing more than a Windows 10 reskin: *real* minimum requirements are identical
