Using Gmail confidential mode is neither secure nor private. As long as Google can read your emails, its privacy promises will always be disingenuous. Here’s why Gmail’s confidential mode isn’t actually confidential: protonmail.com/blog/gmail-conf

I've used #Ubuntu for several years. I started with #RedHat 5.2 (1998). I even tried Slackware, but the #installation kicked my #ass.

Not really, but you can get Linux for free :)

If this instance has a TLD of `pizza`, does this mean that we get pizza for free?

@neothefox I bought an Alcatel feature phone with 2.5 to test it. I love how it is. Check out my opinion.

I'm excited and want to start making apps for it.

So, who's poking #KaiOS ? This stuff is really cool - I've got a Nokia 8110 just to test it, and honestly it's a very smart thing. Emerging markets love it, the web developers would love it, the phones are tiny and cheap - it's so cute. Just look at it. And it has #FirefoxOS inside of it too, so that lives on.

Windows Phone is dead! Its a proprietary OS so Microsoft can just kill it. Firefox OS isn't. It is still alive in #KaiOS because it's open source. #UbuntuTouch is open source too that's why it is still maintained by the community. New features, new apps, bugfixes and improvements every week. Looking forward the new hardware from Pine64 and Purism.

@maxeddy & @jimjamfroo, have you checked out (forked from forked from )? I have a feature phone (so ) with 2.5 and it's fun although no touch screen.

I meant to post this months ago but I guess it didn't go through? Big thanks to @jimjamfroo for making all my weird FirefoxOS dreams come true!

I just love these retro devices. And it doesn't matter which company made them, they look all great. I miss that whole culture where you programmed a computer without distraction, studied a book with sprinkled in source code listings in 9-dot printer style, and did all that just for fun.
