#sxmo on the #pinephone is one of the coolest and most empowering computing experiences i had in a long while!

A tiled window-manager on a mobile computer sounds crazy? not as much as the unified uni-dimensional logic of mobile interfaces, all trying to mimick android/iOS...

The ethos of sxmo/pmOS is of minimalism (shell scripts, suckless, dwm, etc.) and user empowerment. So easy to build interface/menus/scripts that suit your need!

Never thought i'd be excited by computers so much again :)

最近兩天在給 AOSC/Retro 研究怎麼把現代 Linux Kernel (5.4.114 LTS) 塞進軟碟開機,原因是許多 486 等級的機器並沒有辦法直接從 CD-ROM 啟動,於是然後我做到了把 PATA (IDE) 硬碟/光碟機驅動,甚至是 Network Stack(盡量把大多數非必要 Driver 弄成 Module,放進搭配的 CD image)塞進 1108KiB 的 bzImage。還有個 150KiB 的 Initramfs,裡面是 busybox 和配套 init script,用來自動掛載 CD-ROM。

有趣的事情來了,SYSLINUX 這個 Bootloader 尺寸太大 (175KiB),讓我很難塞東西,於是我拿 FreeDOS 的 KERNEL.SYS (46KiB) 加上 loadlin.exe (原始 42KiB,用 upx 壓縮後 11KiB) 取代它,成功省下 100KiB 以上。

最終成果是可以直接從軟碟啟動,並且只須要 8MiB 記憶體就能成功啟動。

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) gave its Award for Advancement of Free Software to Conservancy's Policy Fellow & Hacker-in-Residence, Bradley M. Kuhn. Bradley Kuhn's acceptance speech urged software freedom activists to “speak truth to power” & refuse to write proprietary software. sfconservancy.org/news/2021/ma

LibreOffice is free software - but that's means more than just zero cost. It's about having the freedom to use, study, change and share the software. Learn more here: blog.documentfoundation.org/bl (Oh, and how many free software project logos do you recognise in this image?)

#DRM isn't just an annoyance -- it's a violation of your right to use the items you own as you see fit. Learn more about our Defective by Design campaign at defectivebydesign.org, and follow our campaign account at @endDRM.
