What's your motivation to volunteer in an #opensource #community? Help good friend +Katja Gucek with her study thesis at https://www.1ka.si/a/102463 - thank you! ;-)
This survey is part of a thesis research at Faculty of Social Sciences, Cultural Studies Department - University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, Europe. I'm interested in incentives for voluntary participation in projects or communities developing or supporting Free/ Libre or Open-Source software ...

We'd like to say "Thanks!" to the open source projects that make elementary OS possible
You probably already know that elementary OS in built on top of Linux and every piece of software we write is open source, but you might not know that there’s a lot of other open source bits in...

I've just decided to upgrade my phone and the winner is:

BQ 16 GB Aquaris X5 with Cyanogen

Why BQ?

It's a beautiful device, but not only it is a Spanish brand and the biggest manunfacturer of phone in the EU, but because they support free software, open hardware and free culture through #bqlabs (publishing loads of free/libre materials in the arduino/3d printing/FPGA areas). Plus it has a dual sim so I can stop fiddling with my phone each time I go home. They give me 5 years warranty.

On top of that, knowing that this is a device with Cyanogen support built-in I know I'll have not only fine grained control over the device but prolly a longer lifetime than my last two Android phones that had to go CyanogenMod at some point to keep them up to date.

Going further, given that the phone rocks a Snapdragon, once I retire the phone, who knows, I may be able to run Fedora and GNOME somehow in it :-)

If you are a free software enthusiast and BQ sells phones in your country, please consider supporting them by choosing one of their devices next.

So having bought a similar style of phone from a similar style UK provider called Wileyfox (dual sim etc) that does similar things be prepared to be very disappointed with Cyanogen OS (as opposed to CM which I was always very happy with).

The Cyanogen OS "supported" Android OS is terrible in numerous ways. The big two are both around security 1) complete lack of QA what should be a fairly standard use case of encrypted data. The Cyanogen OS 13 update will not apply using the standard update method on an encrypted phone. They should have added this to their test matrix as they broke it with a minor update very early in this phones life. 2) They don't seem to participate what so ever in the monthly Android patch sets.

I also think you'll be disappointed with the battery life. The first and second gen QCom aarch64 SoCs had major issues in this regards. They've only really fixed it with the current series (820/650/430) which is only now starting to make it to phones.

I hope I'm proved wrong but I doubt you'll be on Cyanogen OS long before moving to CyanogenMod (for once I get what +Jon Masters was ranting about with his One+) but in my case I'm going back to Samsung and going to get a Galaxy 7 (which also has a dual sim option)

I was thrilled to see +openSUSE sponsoring Flock and cooperating due to the adoption of #openQA, we should see more of this kind of cross-pollination.

If someone from the GNOME community think it has some use for a Banana Pi with Mali or PowerVR or a DragonBoard 410c give me a shout. I'll be bringing the hardware to GUADEC by the way.

I'm specially interested in requests from people willing to work on llvmpipe for ARM or reverse engineering the Mali driver as that's what's hurting the ARM SBC ecosystem the most.

If you want to work on enabling apps in ARM that's also cool. Please read the blog post for more details!

I had a blast at #Flock, great stuff going on and a lot of cross-functional talks with the identity team. Also made progress on the #FleetCommander FreeIPA/ActiveDirectory integration.

Next stop: #GUADEC!
