… finally admit your defeat and report about fukn smartphones! Stupid girl almost missed Linux entering the smartphone market. But now PinePhone is available and it promises to be goodygood.

Pine ain’t even alone on the market, and even tek sceptic slowpoke Orca must admit it’s about time Linux gets a foothold in the highly lucrative smartphone market as well. Remember how glorious Canonical/Ubuntu failed to get even the funds organised for a prototype phone? When was that, 2014, 2015 or so? And now I know of at least two companies bringing out Linux-driven smartphones.
Ok, I gotta admit that is indeed quite cool.

Okayyy, did my journalistic duty, can you now please refrain from ever talking to me about fukn telephones? No matter how clever or smart or even FOSS and Linuxy they might be. I’m just not interested. Capisce?
