Lightening talk: Sailfish OS --- a real Linux phone (or maybe not)
Organised by
Uwe Geuder
What do LBW attendents run on their computers? Stupid question. Our smartphones are computers, so we should of course run Linux on them, too. Linus says he is happy that Android phones run the Linux kernel. Well, from a kernel perspective that might be right, but in userspace things don't look that bright. Except that there is Sailfish OS, which gives you a pretty standard GNU/Linux userspace. If there weren't one key issue... Disclaimer: I haven't really contributed anything major to the distro nor am I the best expert on it. I've just happened to work very close to it for nearly 8 years and I use the phone as my primary phone. I've got the impression quite some LBW attendants have not been exposed to the topic a lot, so I decided to give a short lightening talk on the topic. Or well, maybe a double lightening talk... if a better expert than myself is in the audience just speak up and contribute...
