    Phoronix: Purism Is Hoping GNOME 3.32 Will Be In Great Shape For Their Librem 5 Smartphone

    With the Librem 5 GNU/Linux smartphone not shipping now until at least April 2019, this will give them time to adopt GNOME 3.32 and they are hoping more GNOME applications will prepare for convergence...

    I wonder if the Librem 5's USB-C port will be able to drive more than one monitor...

        Gnome is essentially a tablet GUI anyway - shouldn't be too hard.

          It’s funny how the ideas from Unity are creeping in here finally. I wish Canonical hadn’t killed those plans, given their great sense of design, but hopefully they are realized one day soon. I really don’t want to use iOS or Android, and the alternatives aren’t appealing.

            Good! My Android is quickly loosing structural integrity, hopefully my Librem5 will arrive jit to justify a phone upgrade to my GF 🙂🙃

            Anyway, I still struggle to understand why Gnome 3 almost killed the desktop paradigm under the altar of a unified UI for desktop and mobile, and yet it needs a complete rework + a new library to be usable on mobile...

                    I hope it can run without a battery, can't it? Given it could be plugged into a monitor, it would be essential for preserving battery life for unplugged usage.
