What madness is this?!

Installing the complete, unmodified LibreOffice right on a Librem 5?!??

This can't work... can it?

Well. LibreOffice successfully installed on the Librem 5!

But... I mean... It won't actually run.

... will it?

Holy smokes.

LibreOffice runs on the Librem 5!

AND IT WORKS.

Saving files, opening files, typing... the UI is a bit cramped (it's a desktop app on a phone)... but hot-diggity! It works!

It's amazing to me how much software is already available on the Librem 5.

- Some of it optimized for touch screens.
- Some partially optimized.
- Some not yet optimized, but functional.

The power of Free and Open Source software (and Linux) at work. :)

#Librem5

I am seriously blown away by how much of the @gnome software works on the smaller, touch-centric screen of the #Librem5.

The work of the GNOME team, the @purism crew, and so many independent developers that are making this happen... truly impressive.

All of you rule.

I find task switching on the #Librem5 (PureOS) really interesting.

The launcher and the switcher are the *same* view.

No apps are running: the grid of installed apps takes up the full view.

With apps are running: the top half becomes a row of the apps you can swipe through.

@mariusor Sailfish definitely does it in an interesting way. I find the differences in task switching/management between different systems oddly fascinating. :)

@lunduke for me personally Purism's decision to not go with Sailfish or Nemo as an OS was the deciding factor in not supporting their campaign. Yet I am very happy their OS version is fulfilling other people's needs and that we have more options for non-Adroid linux mobile OSes. Maybe an application ecosystem will finally start growing... I know that on Sailfish it's a bit sparse at the moment. :D
