    Qualcomm does not want you to have a well-supported laptop that you will use for years. They want to sell you, and your business new chips each two years, because previous ones are now out of support window and will have unpatched vulnerabilities. And the closer their software stack is, the better for them. Given that that neither of their direct competitors have technological advantage (except maybe Apple, thus Snapdragon X might be a bit better than existing qcom offerings) things are unlikely to change in the nearest term.
    I hope you're wrong and that we can foster a more FOSS friendly attitude among ARM manufacturers. I'm not migrating to a locked down platform.

    can you tell me how exactly is snaps superior to Flatpak and AppImage ? because i use flatpak and appimage but of course i would never use snaps.
    in the past i did use Canonical distros (Kubuntu) but then microsoft invested money into Canonical and this was to much for me i did quit.

    in my point of view microsoft was in kronos group sapotaged openGL just to make sure it will fail against DirectX...
    and everything what these microsoft minions do is to sapotage open standards just like they did with mir vs wayland.

    you forgot all the shit they gave Ubuntu because of Mir and Unity?

    Forgot that they did Unity because of gnome ?

    Anyways, its over.
    When I look at your posts and history, I see only heavy demagoguery.

    From time to time someone appears in the discussion who still enjoys refuting this nonsense.

    Well, I won't be today.​

    Who is actually on your white list? It seems to me that there is no company left that you would not rely on.
    The main thing is that you use the products of all these companies every day.

    I honestly hoped that AMD was the company that was going to replace Intel but since we only crap on them no matter how well they treat the FOSS community, we are now going to be under Qualcomm.

    If you think that ngreedia proprietary tech is bad , wait until Qualcomm have us by the shorts ones.


    Fun times ahead.

    Officially and supported by Canonical? Probably not unless they somehow decided that they can make another mobile push. Which at this point wouldnt make that much sense considering they tried that and it went badly ebough that they threw all of it out and pivoted to mostly business customers. Plus, unity 8 was pretty cool but since being ditched its been largely surpased by Gnome and KDEs mobile efforts in terms of usability on actual devices
    Lolwut? Mobile Linux user here. GNOME and KDE are nowhere near Ubuntu Touch on mobile. KDE is doing better than GNOME, but both of them are still nowhere near the usability and performance of the current Ubuntu Touch (and I'm not even including apps, of which UT has more as well, if we count proper mobile apps).
