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.

Why ? Because I can. 😁
Now you can literally have your cloud in your pocket !
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! :)
