@esheep if you know how to compile an operating system for that you can. good luck finding out what driver blobs to use and how to compile your own kernel for that.

@esheep nokia s30+ is sadly proprietary so i can't put my word on it if it really stops connecting to the internet, but i don't see my data plan being drained so i think it doesn't.

@esheep the nokia 3310 (3g) has full ssl support and i am able to run brutaldon over a secure connection. they basically used the old s30+ code and updated it so it can be used in 2020 (and i heard they stripped some features apparently). if you need something more modern there are candybar phones with kaios which is a fork of firefox os optimized for that form factor plus it's all open-source (except driver blobs of course). kaios is currently the third largest phone operating system and widely used in not-so-smartphone countries like india.

@xerz eww centralized video platforms. just use peertube...

@esheep what i have seen is that nokia s30+ only connects to the internet when the app is open and doesn't allow unsigned apps to use your internet connection. pretty cool privacy-wise tbh.

@xerz if you don't host terabytes of data like i do i bet you don't need a s3 for wordpress...you just need a properly configured nginx server that runs wordpress very well

@esheep if i was investing more time into this platform i could also go as far and develop my own java apps which is something apple and google slowly don't want me to do since they're introducing specifications to their platforms i don't agree with

@esheep not only flip phones, but having physical keyboards and an operating system that isn't hurting you (e.g. locking you down etc.) is something a phone must have. i can literally run a fediverse client on nokia s30+ thanks to brutaldon.

We are launching fedisearch.com , a website for doing full text search on fediverse content.

This could be very useful for small instances users that are missing full text searches, just about anyone else who is looking for a blazing fast fediverse search engine.

We have a well behaved indexer that honors users' preference on opting out status indexing.

Please give it a try and let us know what you think.

Thanks to the work of Samuel Holland, crust advanced power management is now capable of running the #PinePhone for 100hrs in idle without the modem (approximately 110mW). With modem on, we should get 40% battery run-time increase (to approx 24 hrs).
Coming to your distro of choice soon!

@Snow at least linux is at 3.6% making firefox hopefully the standard
