Announcing "Can My Phone Run Linux?": listing over 200 Linux-supported smartphones
#KDE Plasma Mobile has received tons of improvements and UI polishing in the last weeks, and introduced a new "Plasma Nano" minimal package for embedded devices.

As anticipated in the poll of last week, I'm currently developing an unified resource tells you if your #smartphone or smartwatch is able to boot any (and what) kind of #Linux, with information on its current level of support (alpha to daily driver) and also aimed (in the limits this field allows) at relatively inexperienced users.
More details, and hopefully an usable/useful release, in the next days/weeks!
#postmarketOS (XFCE) running on my Sony Xperia Z1
My latest project is trying to build a #Linux shell for old smartphones that uses as little RAM as possible. The first prototype (in the picture below) uses a #Qt Widgets UI (now ~20MB RAM, but many things are missing) on an #OpenBox WM (~10MB RAM). The idea would be having a "LXDE for smartphones", especially very old ones. Thoughts? :)
GNOME is getting ready for next-generation Linux smartphones
