Also, for a laugh, check out "you sunk my battleship" gifs
No, but I know a few things battleships. Luckly they are not attacked very often nowdays. Great transporters.

Of course Ive played it. Just don’t call it battleship.

Indeed, I'd say everyone has played it. If nowhere else, then secretly in elementary school during some really really boring classes...
In Finland it is known as Laivanupotus (sinking-the-ships)

Laivanupotus the dinosaur. Must have been a dinosaur. Could be that the first dinosaur spoke the language of jolla. Nowadays they speak russian.

Imagine if we are the only living species in the entire universe. What an epic waste of space.

I believe in the expansion theory...
If we are the only sentient species in the cosmos...
Then we need all that epic empty space...
Considering all the hot air...attitude ...and inflated egos ...here on earth..
It balances itself out ...

Well ...
I went and got myself a nexus 5 to play with...
See how fast I can brick it.
Best suggestions for an os for it?
I see a variety of options
I would prefer plasma...but there really hasn't been much resolved in the issues surrounding wifi and the keyboard...

As long as you don't use it with a keyboard you'll have to settle wita a touch-oriented OS. How about SFOS with Glacier UI?

don't use the touchscreen keyboard on plasma ?
or are you referring to a physik keyboard... juice?

sigh...
sfos on nexus 5 seems to have tons of issues which make kde plasma's issues on nexus 5 look like the difference between the plague and a cold...
Once I have it in hand I will see what I shall do with it...
I don't hold out a great deal of hope for it...frankly....

I must admit ...the nature of things nowadays is...
people get something to run on a device...
half-assedly throw it together...
maybe or maybe not fix some things...
leave even more things non-functional...
make sure there is a generous list of issues, bugs, and things that crash the device...that are never addressed..
then promptly abandon and drop any support and follow through for the device to move on to the next device to half-assedly do the very same thing again...

pisses me off.
It is no great wonder why we still have yet to have a functional successor to maemo

Unfortunately this is the state of things... Not like you have a major company like Nokia providing support for true Linux based phone. Not sure if Samsung gave up on Tizen. It had its share of problems. Now I'm waiting to see how Librem shakes out. But I tell you, I get real sad and nostagic when I see a recent thread on how to compile and install apps on maemo... Excuse me a second... Sorry about that, just had a good cry. Better now, I guess. Just have to wait and see...

Ach!

I don't buy the same old excuses any more...
Its a freaking crutch ...and just a pat statement that has been used so much it is a droning mantra with no meaning now...
The determination isn't there any more to follow through...to work and find solutions ...think round corners ...


Bloody hell...
Leste better end up in better shape than the sack of rotten potatoes that is the sum total of all the half baked os's that float out there now.
