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

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.

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.

L’open source, c’est plus que des licences

Les licences libres sont nécessaires mais elles sont loin d’être encore suffisantes pour préserver la liberté des utilisateurs et leur garantir un contrôle de leur vie numérique.

Just so everyone knows Privacy and Security do not need to be expensive ventures. For this reason I am going to throw some shade and I am going to post some of my current devices and their prices.

Instead of buying a $1000 IPhone with proprietary software

I purchased a Pixel 1st gen with 128 GB of storage for $120 USD. I flashed lineage OS onto it and I do not use any of googles services.

Instead of a $2000 macbook pro I have a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro that I purchased for $200 USD. Currently running Kubuntu and no proprietary software.

Instead of buying a $5000 iMac I have a Dell Optiplex 990 with 16gb of ram, a 256 GB SSD and an i7-2600, running Qubes OS with upgrades the total cost came out to $200 USD.

Instead of buying expensive proprietary products look to building your own or modifying used systems.

As my setup shows with all of these devices my total came out to $520 usd for a phone, laptop, and desktop. A little under half the price of what a phone would've cost.

Most users on here are only looking for a single device. I can confidently say that you can find devices for much cheaper that will function very well for cheaper prices than commercial devices.

Do not fall into marketing traps, do not be intimidated by ads and stories claiming to fix your privacy problems. Take your fate into your own hands and start one device at a time.
