Good News! De-Googled /e/OS Smartphones is Now Shipping to the US and Canada

Filed under
OS
Gadgets

The de-googled Android fork /e/OS is a passionate step towards removing Google from your daily driver (i.e. your smartphone).

Considering they’re also working on a privacy-friendly Siri alternative, /e/OS is particularly an exciting pitch for the future smartphones without relying on Google.

While /e/ smartphones have been around for a while, it still is not tailored for everyone depending on various requirements for daily activities that you do on a smartphone. I’d suggest doing your research before making a purchase.

However, there’s good news that /e/ smartphones will now also be shipping to the USA and Canada.

Hyperbola Linux Review: Systemd-Free Arch With Linux-libre Kernel

In the last month of 2019, the Hyperbola project took a major decision of ditching Linux in favor of OpenBSD. We also had a chat with Hyperbola co-founder Andre Silva, who detailed the reason for dropping Hyperbola OS and starting a new HyperbolaBSD. HyperbolaBSD is still under development and its alpha release will be ready by September 2021 for initial testing. The current Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre v0.3.1 Milky Way will be supported until the legacy Linux-libre kernel reaches the end of life in 2022. I thought of giving it a try before it goes away and switches to BSD completely. Read more

This week in KDE: Offline updates are now optional

I have good news for those of you who are upset by KDE Neon moving to offline updates by default: we’ve made a GUI setting to turn it off (there was already a CLI setting). I get that the nerdy tech crowd is not super thrilled by this new more Windows 10-style update mode. But though it sometimes be annoying, it really does improve your system’s stability.

Librem 14 Begins Shipping

As expected, there is a lot of demand for the Librem 14 and now that we are shipping we expect that demand to grow. We plan to reach shipping parity (the point where we have shipped all existing orders so that new orders ship within our normal 10-business-day window) as soon as possible and with the help of some overtime we have an internal goal to ship through all existing orders in May, any newly placed orders get into the ever growing queue for fulfillment in a first-in-first-out process. If you are already in the queue with a pre-order, we will confirm shipping details prior to your order being delivered. Read more

  • openSUSE Tumbleweed – Review of the week 2021/15

    After I left you and Tumbleweed in the capable hands of Richard for two weeks, it is good to be back. The week has seen a slightly lower count of published snapshots, but only because openQA was nice enough to find bugs that we did not you having to fight with. So, we only released two snapshots (0408 and 0414). As usual, the large gap means a few snapshots were tested in between, and things accumulated.
