    Lots of Mesa MRs are ready on the Etnaviv driver. Hopefully they will merge soon

    Purism is doing a great job on GNOME. Mobile and Desktop becomes one

      Their software side of things looks great... But the hardware isn't looking as hot.

          Right...let's get to the heart of the matter, and cut out out all the enabling horse-shit.

            Yeah pinephone does look like a MUCH better option at only $150usd apparently.
            However be aware it comes blank and needs the OS loaded onto it via the users, but I don't think that's a big issue for anyone buying such a device given target audience.

            I think KDE have a mobile phone OS or something, not sure if that is a option for pinephone or not.

              theriddick Target audience is privacy minded people. Pine is just hardware plus optional software. Librem5 is a proper product.

                  The amazing power of using chinese child labor and legions of underpaid communist workers. No western company can pull this off.

                    So whenever ANYTHING is made in China (most our stuff is btw) its automatically child and forced labour? Don't be so naive!
                    I bet you my bottom dollar the parts in the Librem5 are from those same asian markets!
