~~anyone want to hire me to just putter about on personal projects for a decent six-figure salary so I don't have to work in capitalism~~
@neil Starting to feel the same way; I’ve recently grown fond for old Palm webOS devices which are surprisingly open and nice in the hand (though also of their time — no secure boot / disk encryption…)
Something like the Pre3 with a modern SoC would be lovely, IMO.
Slowly working on porting mainline linux to the Pre 1/2 with an end goal of using it day to day, since they’re cute things.
(I’ve a drawer of spares currently used for testing, should you or anyone else vaguely friend shaped want to have a play around some time! Though would need to combine some parts to have more fully working ones)
Reduce, reuse, recycle.
- In order to reduce, there need to be proper infrastructure to compensate for the thing being reduced;
- In order to reuse, things need to be durable and easily maintainable, modularly upgradable and repairable;
- If you go to the recycle step ignoring the first two, you've already lost.
As we see, just "changing consumer habits" doesn't work.
Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

In 2013, someone requested a guided/graphical installer for #NixOS for the first time. There have been at least 6 attempts so far that all failed. Now, 9 years later, we have finally merged an implementation based on the #Calamares framework. It will be part of the stable release at the end of this month and is already available in unstable.
