@selea I'm watching hopefully as my #pinephone becomes more and more usable every day thanks to the amazing work of an army of volunteers.

I'd like to get to the point where it or something like it is just my phone.

FOSS creates huge opportunities for indigenous communities around the world to ensure the technology they use reflects their unique and precious cultures. Software is a personal and cultural sovereignty issue and deserves a global uprising - in the form of people who desire to learn. We need a new 'enlightenment' with true, deep digital literacy as the goal if we want to achieve a true balance of power. Facebook, Microsoft, Google, Apple and others like them are just digital colonials.

Any gurus out there know if it's possible to get it running with a Realtek RTL8191SEvB Wireless Card?

Amazon is not only one of the world's most powerful tech companies--it also sells numerous surveillance and anti-privacy products (Echo, Ring, Rekognition). Additionally, it's cloud services (Amazon Web Services) hosts much of the Fortune 500, as well as invasive US govt agencies, like the CIA and ICE. Result? A state-corporate nexus that embodies modern surveillance capitalism. Chapter from "The Cost of Free Shipping". #amazon #anarchism #labor #privacy hcommons.org/deposits/item/hc:

#Pinephone #DailyDriver informal survey closed:

framapiaf.org/@boud/1068736985

Looks good to me! Among a demographic biased to geeky and pro-free-software people, about a fifth are currently using their pinephone as their daily driver, and another half guess they'll be doing so on a 15-month time scale.

This short time scale should encourage experienced GNU/Linuxers willing to have a go and contribute bug reports and merge requests: this is not vapourware.

Thanks to everyone who answered! :)
