    Purism announced this morning that their PureOS Linux distribution for their Librem laptops and forthcoming Librem 5 platform has achieved the goal of "convergence"...

    I'm interested for sure, but I don't think I'd be going around boasting about "beating the duopoly" when nobody is using your products.

        So we got convergence after all... That went surprisingly fast.

            Epiphany have a responsive UI too that you can use same Epiphany on a desktop and it resizes down to smaller screens.
            I would like to convergence for Gedit or some code text editor so you can code-on-the-go with your phone.

            An important thing for convergence is cloud storage such as Google Drive, Dropbox and Microsoft OneDrive.

            What convergence would you like to see on Linux?

              It would also serve as a note-taking application.

              What does this have to do with the article? The article is about UI convergence...

                I dunno. Been there, done that, now working in an industry with a future. Turns out pretty much nobody wants convergence between desktop/laptop, phone, TV, and in-dash infotainment. What they really want is a faster horse.

                  Distrowatch says Pine64 is cooking up a $149 PinePhone running UBPorts (community version of Ubuntu Touch) for later this year:
                  People wanting to test out GNU/Linux-based phone solutions at a lower price point may want to examine the PinePhone. The PinePhone is expected to run UBports (possibly with other operating system options) and should retail for $149. Both devices are expected to be available sometime in 2019.
                  I'm pretty sure that UBPorts claims to achieve some degree of convergence. Pine64 actually gets products out the door to my understanding. Could be interesting.

                    Have these people tried any form of convergence?
