    Heh, so very happy, I still have the original Jolla. It has given spectacular value. So very glad also haven't switched to Android phone.

      I pretty much refuse to buy anything Jolla because they have failed to fulfill their promises of open sourcing it. I don't see that changing.
      Enjoy your spyware or walled garden phone until then.

        i actually enjoy my walled garden on my phone. It is when you leave the world of cell phones that I have trouble with iOS. A Linux based tablet worth buying would be nice though.

          Exactly. I even wasted money in this company, just got a phone and I didn't ask to claim the money back for the tablet in the hope they keep at least their promises of open sourcing the UI.

            Yes and those in-house developed components are co-owned by the people who own the company.

              Their pull down menu is amazing. Since Apple has ditched their home button, and now are using swipe based navigation, Apple should copy this feature. Then everyone will copy Apple and we'll get that feature :P.

                Exactly the point? And they are stalling open sourcing it.

                  While respecting the promise they have made in the past[about releasing the full source code of Sailfish OS, including the UI components], they only have to gain, both new users and also direct contributors, testers, application developers, free publicity.

                    No. There are people already testing early stuff, people that contribute after agreeing with jolla on some terms, noone stops you from writing your own app and as for publicity the only people that care much about open sourcing the UI (even though you can patch it/there is infra already for that -see patch manager) are the ones bitching around on the internet. If any of those was really interested in contributing -because he likes the OS- would have done it already like many others do.

                      I'm surprised some don't care about it. We need a FOSS system, not a closed one. There are too many blobs already.
