Finally, a good update on the manufacture of the Fxtec Pro1-X.
They now have an in-house engineer working on Linux mainlining.

I am sexually attracted to F(x)tec Pro1 and Pro1-X.
Hopefully one day I get my hands on one.

Does mainline Linux kernel mean more likely to have ability to run PostmarketOS, Manjaro etc. ?

@didek Mainline Linux rhymes with security updates alongwith long term support but in this case it particularly shows that Fxtec might be commited to provide a complete Linux experience to the phone. Something that I was worried about before today's update.

So I'd like to say yes, but this phone is not as popular as the Pinephone. We'll see if Fxtec will be helped by community efforts or not.
