OffGrid Solar Powered Workstation (Open Source Hardware)

This article is about finding out: What low-power PC with decent performance is best suitable for solar-powered (12v would be nice) Off-Grid-computing while respecting your privacy in an FSF-kind?



i have to admit… i am still in the progress… no finished dito-results, sorry.

But very interesting boards were found, Open Source Hardware is kickstarting!!!

Recommendations:



„Given the current situation, there is no ideal device available that would satisfy all the requirements to fully respect users‘ freedom: hardware freedom is missing and most firmwares, modem operating systems and bootroms are non-free. However, it is possible to choose a device that runs with free bootloaders and a free mobile operating system: Replicant, as well as free applications.

Privacy/security cannot be reliably achieved, but it is possible to get close to it by choosing a device that is not proven to have bad modem isolation, provides a reliable way of deactivating the modem or doesn’t feature any modem at all, in addition to running software that is as free as possible and following some general good advice.“

src: http://www.replicant.us/freedom-privacy-security-issues.php

Can the Raspberry be a „full PC with EXTEME Powersavings“?



maybe yes. but it needs a large binary GPU blop to boot – not OpenSource, not transparent possibly endangering your privacy.




I hope so… i would like to operate it with solar-panels and a 12V Battery! Off-Grid computing! That is why this matters!

not directly. shittt 😀

Why Richard Stallman would never buy: „The Raspberry Pi boots from its GPU and only non-free software is currently available for the GPU, even starting the machine requires a large (2MB) blob of non-free, unsupportable software“

„Generally, your best bet is to use Raspbian – which is (mostly) Debian armhf rebuilt by members of Debian for the RPi’s ARMv6+VFP2 ARM variant. Raspbian releases usually follow the corresponding Debian release but do deviate in a handful of cases for various reasons.

Be aware that the Raspbian images distributed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation contain additional packages supplied by them including updated versions of some software and the addition of non-free software including Oracle Java and Wolfram Mathematica.“

src: https://wiki.debian.org/RaspberryPi

https://perens.com/blog/2016/04/07/installing-the-native-debian-armhf-architecture-on-raspberry-pi-3-instead-of-raspbian/

The Power – where from?



„The built-in Wireless LAN and Bluetooth and the more powerful processor mean that the Raspberry Pi 3 draws about twice the current of its predecessor when under heavy CPU load (750mA vs 360mA).

Official Powersupply: 5v \* 2A = 10Watts „it’ll keep feeding your Pi the steady 2A it needs for proper performance.“

Unfortunately – it seems like – the Raspberry Pi can not be powered by simply plugin it’s power to a PC’s USB-Port.

„The Raspberry Pi can function on lower current power supplies e.g. 5V @ 1A. However, any excessive use of the USB ports or even heavy CPU/GPU loading can cause the voltage to drop, and instability during use. The latest versions of the Raspberry Pi B+/A+/2 have a “low voltage indicator icon” to notify the user if there is a problem with the power.



If you apply power to the USB port when you Pi is off, it will not boot. However, if you apply power to your Pi via one of the standard methods (e.g. the micro USB port), then apply power to USB ports and remove the original supply, it will stay on and functional.

It should be noted that USB ports have a current limit of 500mA, so we would not recommend you attempt to supply more than this via the USB!“

https://www.raspberrypi.org/magpi/raspberry-pi-3-specs-benchmarks/

„Updated following the release of the model B+, A+, Pi 2 Model B, and Pi Zero. According to measurements by Alex Eames [1][2][3][4]“

``` B with keyboard = 1.89 W -> daily 45 Wh
B+ with keyboard = 1.21 W -> daily 29 Wh
B+ with LAN/USB chip off (no i/o except GPIO) = 0.76 W -> daily 18.2 Wh
B+ shut down = 0.26 W -> daily 6.2 Wh
A idle = 0.7 W -> daily 17 Wh
A+ idle = 0.52 W -> daily 12.5 Wh
Pi2 B at idle = 1.15 W -> daily 28 Wh
Pi Zero at idle = 0.51 W -> daily 12.2 Wh

```„The Zero, A+ and B+ really offer huge improvements in the power circuitry. Wow!“

Yeah u guys gonna hate me:

What i really like about JavaScript: It is ALWAYS OpenSource 🙂



and you can produce nice web-based (hardware independent) graphical outputs right on the screen…

but JavaScript is TOO SLOW!



We need more a C-kind of thing, lightweight, client-browser-sandboxed and secure scripting capabilities.

really!

some people like to load a lot of JavaScript on their sites. Combine that with massive not-downscaled pictures of 8MByte and you get a website that crashes every modern IPhone.

so it is really no wonder that a 64Bit-QuadCore, 1GByte embedded System like the Raspberry Pi has it’s problems with: JavaScript

„One of my biggest gripes was how slowly JavaScript-heavy websites loaded, when using both the Epiphany and Iceweasel web browsers. Given JS is so common in modern web sites and services this proved to be problematic.“

src: http://www.techrepublic.com/article/five-tips-for-getting-the-most-out-of-a-raspberry-pi-3-as-a-pc/

So you definitely want to use some light-weight linux like TinyCore Linux (12MByte) and https://noscript.net/

Youtube works! Firefox works! Opera works! 🙂

Next thing: What about Startup of Applications?



„LibreOffice works extremely well taking only 9 seconds to boot with the Raspberry Pi 2.“

Raspi Pros and Cons from an Open Source FSF perspective:



Pros:
  • Large and active community
  • Low price for the capabilities offered
Cons:
  • The Raspberry Pi 1’s processor falls uncomfortably between the processor families that Debian has chosen to target. While Raspbian solves this to some degree an unofficial port will always give less certainty than an official one. (This doesn‘ stand anymore for the Raspberry Pi 2)
  • 3D acceleration is not integrated with X or other standard mechanisms and the Raspberry Pi Foundation don’t seem to show any interest in doing so. Therefore 3D applications will require Pi specific builds.
  • A binary blob used by the GPU must be present on the SD card for the system to boot.
  • While some hardware documentation has been released the documentation is sorely lacking.
  • While schematics are available the board design is closed and the main processor is not available for purchase by the general public.

EOMA68 – crowd funded OpenHardware project:



„The project is being developed by Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton of Rhombus-Tech and is sponsored by Christopher Waid of ThinkPenguin, a company that sells multiple RYF-certified hardware products. It is exciting to see passionate free software advocates in our community working with OEMs to produce a computer hardware product capable of achieving RYF certification. We hope that this is the first of many computing systems they are able to design and build that respect your freedom.

The Libre Tea Computer Card is built with an Allwinner A20 dual core processor configured to use the main CPU for graphics; it has 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of NAND Flash; and it will come pre-installed with Parabola GNU/Linux-libre, an FSF-endorsed fully-free operating system.“NEWS and PROGRESS

However, any excessive use of the USB ports or even heavy CPU/GPU loading can cause the voltage to drop, and instability during use. The latest versions of the Raspberry Pi B+/A+/2 have a “low voltage indicator icon” to notify the user if there is a problem with the power.



If you apply power to the USB port when you Pi is off, it will not boot. However, if you apply power to your Pi via one of the standard methods (e.g. the micro USB port), then apply power to USB ports and remove the original supply, it will stay on and functional.

It should be noted that USB ports have a current limit of 500mA, so we would not recommend you attempt to supply more than this via the USB!“

„Updated following the release of the model B+, A+, Pi 2 Model B, and Pi Zero. According to measurements by Alex Eames [1][2][3][4]“

``` B with keyboard = 1.89 W -> daily 45 Wh
B+ with keyboard = 1.21 W -> daily 29 Wh
B+ with LAN/USB chip off (no i/o except GPIO) = 0.76 W -> daily 18.2 Wh
B+ shut down = 0.26 W -> daily 6.2 Wh
A idle = 0.7 W -> daily 17 Wh
A+ idle = 0.52 W -> daily 12.5 Wh
Pi2 B at idle = 1.15 W -> daily 28 Wh
Pi Zero at idle = 0.51 W -> daily 12.2 Wh

```„The Zero, A+ and B+ really offer huge improvements in the power circuitry. Wow!“

Yeah u guys gonna hate me:

What i really like about JavaScript: It is ALWAYS OpenSource 🙂



and you can produce nice web-based (hardware independent) graphical outputs right on the screen…

but JavaScript is TOO SLOW!



We need more a C-kind of thing, lightweight, client-browser-sandboxed and secure scripting capabilities.

really!

some people like to load a lot of JavaScript on their sites. Combine that with massive not-downscaled pictures of 8MByte and you get a website that crashes every modern IPhone.

so it is really no wonder that a 64Bit-QuadCore, 1GByte embedded System like the Raspberry Pi has it’s problems with: JavaScript

„One of my biggest gripes was how slowly JavaScript-heavy websites loaded, when using both the Epiphany and Iceweasel web browsers. Given JS is so common in modern web sites and services this proved to be problematic.“

src: http://www.techrepublic.com/article/five-tips-for-getting-the-most-out-of-a-raspberry-pi-3-as-a-pc/

So you definitely want to use some light-weight linux like TinyCore Linux (12MByte) and https://noscript.net/

Youtube works! Firefox works! Opera works! 🙂

Next thing: What about Startup of Applications?



„LibreOffice works extremely well taking only 9 seconds to boot with the Raspberry Pi 2.“

Raspi Pros and Cons from an Open Source FSF perspective:



Pros:
  • Large and active community
  • Low price for the capabilities offered
Cons:
  • The Raspberry Pi 1’s processor falls uncomfortably between the processor families that Debian has chosen to target. While Raspbian solves this to some degree an unofficial port will always give less certainty than an official one. (This doesn‘ stand anymore for the Raspberry Pi 2)
  • 3D acceleration is not integrated with X or other standard mechanisms and the Raspberry Pi Foundation don’t seem to show any interest in doing so. Therefore 3D applications will require Pi specific builds.
  • A binary blob used by the GPU must be present on the SD card for the system to boot.
  • While some hardware documentation has been released the documentation is sorely lacking.
  • While schematics are available the board design is closed and the main processor is not available for purchase by the general public.

EOMA68 – crowd funded OpenHardware project:



„The project is being developed by Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton of Rhombus-Tech and is sponsored by Christopher Waid of ThinkPenguin, a company that sells multiple RYF-certified hardware products. It is exciting to see passionate free software advocates in our community working with OEMs to produce a computer hardware product capable of achieving RYF certification. We hope that this is the first of many computing systems they are able to design and build that respect your freedom.

The Libre Tea Computer Card is built with an Allwinner A20 dual core processor configured to use the main CPU for graphics; it has 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of NAND Flash; and it will come pre-installed with Parabola GNU/Linux-libre, an FSF-endorsed fully-free operating system.“NEWS and PROGRESS

Quand un jeu vidéo de tir libre entraîne les IAs d'Alphabet ...



vers un prochain Terminator Judgment day ? (ou comment les chatons sauverons l'humanité)



"y a pas de jeux libres!"



On répète souvent cette rengaine que "oui mais moi je joue sur mon ordi, alors sur (GNU-)Linux ça ne va pas, y a pas de jeux!"C'est une réalité toute relative, et une déclaration fausse dans l'absolu ( - liste - liste - liste moins libre sans parler des humblebundle et autres émulateur de "tout" ( "- sudo apt-get install mame", etc... ), il y en a moins (la faute à la poule et l'oeuf selon moi... ) mais ils sont là et pour de bon. Et ils sont ouverts, et fonctionnels depuis des années, donc affinés comme de bons fromages.

"FPS 4 AI"



Et voilà que les chercheurs de chez Alphabet (Google) travaillant sur les systèmes "d'Intelligence Artificielle", ou plutôt des systèmes "auto-adaptifs" basés sur des simulation de réseaux de neurone, se sont rendu compte que faire jouer à un FPS (jeu de tir à la 1ere personne), ça permettait de présenter à ces petits cerveaux virtuels des mondes suffisamment complexes pour les sensibiliser et leur apprendre des comportements à choix complexes...
Mais la tache semble tellement énorme qu'ils ouvrent le paquet sur github, en proposant "aux gens" de participer.

Bientôt des bots incollables et "plus qu'humains" dans OpenArena ?



Et du coup, ils choisissent d'utiliser un de ces bon vieux moteur IOQ3 https://ioquake3.org/ éprouvé depuis des lustres, qu'ils interfacent avec un système d'agents déjà préprogrammés, ou "outillés" pour pouvoir se mouvoir dans l'espace virtuel.
la description du projet : https://deepmind.com/blog/open-sourcing-deepmind-lab/ les sources : https://github.com/deepmind/lab Et donc si "quelqu'un" est motivé, YAKA interfacer ça pour mettre des bots à réseaux neuronaux qui apprennent dans OpenArena, le FPS libre de référence disponible dans les répertoires courants, puisqu'il est basé sur .. ioq3. On a donc ici un raccourci à portée de main vers les meilleurs bots du monde dans un jeux libre, bien avant tout autre jeu commercial. http://openarena.ws Pour rappel, et avoir la mesure du vertige : DeepMind a battu le champion du monde de GO. On lui donne maintenant des yeux et des membres (déplacement, actions). Les "bots" classiques sont des algorithmes mécanistes totalement primitifs. Entre une horloge mécanique et un ordi-phone/superordinateur-de-poche il y a le même écart de paradigme.

"My bot had a (bad) dream"



Et on aussi une avancée conséquente dans le modèle de pensée des "robots". Parce qu'en effet, ces "bots" réagissent aux mêmes données qu'un joueur humain : l'image à l'écran (et non plus des senseurs virtuels "artificiels"), ils réagissent donc potentiellement de la même manière avec un flux caméra. Et c'est l'idée : simuler des milliers de bots différents dans un espace virtuel, impossible à faire avec des robots physiques. On les fait donc "rêver". Il "suffit" donc ensuite de relier les commandes de mouvement "virtualisée" (les bots flottent dans l'espace virtuel, se déplacent avec des "réacteurs" abstraits donc) à des circuits eux même entraînés pour s’accommoder de variations locales (aussi des petits réseaux neuronaux ou à boucle de feedback, PID, etc) commandant des actuateurs (moteurs, roues, jambes, bras, etc... ) et on peut (théoriquement) faire sortir le robot de son rêve, lui donner un corps.

dans 10 ans : "Terminator est tu la?" ou "GAFAM's Army" ou "Elysium"?



Il y a plusieurs choses qui sont tout de même à réfléchir ici :
- on entraine des IA dans un FPS, donc d'abord à "shooter" ou à "chercher après des récompenses"... l'éthique commence là déjà, à poser question. - Alphabet/Google a précédement acheté Boston Dynamics, qui fabrique des robots (assez "terrifiants") sur base de contrats avec le Darpa (recherche pour l'armée amériquaine) ... ensuite revendue. Mais peut importe puisque l’entraînement les IA est "open-source" aussi chez les autres 'AFAMS - c'est comme un concours de celui qui met le plus d'outil à disposition ! Alphabet pourra donc racheter (en bourse) l'entreprise qui mettra en oeuvre ceci de manière rentable quand bon lui semble. Ou son concurrent. Une "saine compétition" entre entreprise interdépendantes. L'open source (à défaut du libre) semble devenu une arme compétitive de pointe. - Pas besoin de robot guerrier, juste de robots ouvriers, des "bras à tout faire" p.ex. à 1500€ (actuellement c'est >10k€ et ils sont pas débrouillards puisque "programmés à la main")... ou un "autonome" sur roue, pouvant même faire une course pour vous chez ... chez ... le magasin automatique ... qui ... se fait livrer par un camion automatique qui va se livrer à la serre automatique ...etc... et hop, en 10 ans le travail ouvrier et employé passe à la trappe pour 80% ... c'est dans les cartons de la combinaison de toutes ces entreprises. - ce projet rappelle un peu bizarrement le jeu "America's Army" mis en place gratuitement par l'armée US peu avant la guerre du golfe de 2003 pour recruter les jeunes et entraîner les recrues aux tactiques de combat au sol ... c'est un chapitre à développer en soit. - l’entraînement de ces AI déployées par les GAFAM se fait grace aux données des internautes : c'est en effet grâce à la masse incroyable de données mises à disposition par les utilisateur de leurs services qu'ils "font apprendre" les réseaux neuronaux. quand on pose une question à "ok google", c'est une IA qui vous réponds en s'autoadaptant pour mieux reconnaître votre voix, le sens de la phrase, la meilleure réponse à adopter en fonction de la réaction suivante, etc... Les images mises en ligne apprennent à voir et reconnaître les objets et les visages, Les "likes" sur FB sont autant de validation de modèle dynamique d'analyse de contenu. La quantité de travail/donnée gratuite fournis en retour de ces service est sans commune mesure... et la perte de liberté future (surdétermination) assez grande également (bulle d'information, etc... ) -> la question change de "ai-je quelque chose à cacher?" à "est-ce que je participe à cette modélisation des flux au service de sociétés privées". Modélisation qui permet d'induire des comportement à l'insu des personnes (p.ex. deux personnes "compatible suivant leurs profils de vie" se rencontrent "par hasard" par suggestion du moteur de recherche pour un restaurant... le bénéfice de cette rencontré étant dans les retombées pour la plateforme qui a servi les renseignement, ou ses clients ... p.ex. le restaurant qui fidélise deux "amis" et paye la plateforme pour sa notoriété... etc )
- quand on me dit que le "jeu video n'a rien de politique", je rigole ! :D

"le peril Chinois, 3e épisode"



Et avec "GAFAM", on occulte le continent asiatique, qui bien qu'on le tienne dans notre angle mort, est bien en avance dans ce domaine, si on compte le nombre de robot installés, et le nombre de publication scientifique en rapport avec l'IA.
Les travailleurs chinois seront donc les premiers "libérés", et nous "envahis" par une marchandise irréprochable et "éthique" (si tant est qu'ils développent aussi l'énergie renouvelable).
La question qu'on vient à se poser, c'est : que faire, et pourquoi. Plusieurs données et point d’inflexions sont à poursuivre, quelques ficelles transversales à tirer : logiciel, robotique et #monnaie libre, communs et bien commun, solidarité et reprise de l'autogestion. On se demande comment la chine populaire va réagir à cette robotisation massive, elle qui s'est bougé des campagne pour rejoindre les fabriques. On se demande comment réagiront, enfin, nos contrées de vieille europe, désindustrialisée dont le secteur tertiaire va aussi se faire laminer. (oui ok, y a un bon niveau dans les labos d'IA en France, la frenchtech touça, et les datacenter de Google à Mons... mais ... ça concerne combien de dizaines de personnes?)

"l'apocalypse de l'emploi"



Le "chomâge" va exploser, et subitement les richesse s'hyper concentrer dans les mains des détenteurs d'action, puisque les autres n'auront plus de revenu de leur emploi.
L'analyse de Bernard Stiegler va dans ce sens p.ex., mais manque d'une réflexion importante : la question de la monnaie n'est pas abordée, et est probablement clé dans l'histoire. voir http://trm.creationmonetaire.info En effet, cette apocalypse n'arrive que si l'ensemble des humains participe à cette bulle, et accorde unilatéralement sa confiance dans le système monétaire dominant "actuel" (2016) qui la fera éclater pour un monde #dystopique visualisé dans des films comme "Elysium" ou "Chappie" ... voire surement pire : l'IA aura toute connaissance de votre comportement inconscient quotidien par la surveillance data. pas d’échappatoire, la psychose est totale. (on a déjà vu retour vers le futur II se réaliser au niveau dystopique cette année ... )

« révélation » - democracy now!



**Apocalypse* , Étymologiquement, le mot « apocalypse » est la transcription d’un terme grec (ἀποκάλυψις / apokálupsis) signifiant « dévoilement » ou, sous un aspect religieux, « révélation »*

d'abord le choc, ce qui vient après ça peut aussi être autre chose qu'une résignation ou une crispation : une réappropriation de la monnaie par des communautés maîtres de leurs outils, redéveloppant et réimplémentant au niveau local un savoir distribué. Une économie GloCale, libre, dans une interconnexion de #réseaux libres s'échangeant des valeurs variables évaluées entre les parties sur base de protocoles communs et d'un respect des humains, présents et à venir. Partageant savoir, #ressources, modèles, #énergie, ... pour le bien de tous. Un beau rêve "bobo" diront certains, qui est pourtant l'utopie à poursuivre comme porte de sortie, même s'il est "trop tard" ...
Ce changement de paradigme nécessite de reconstruire les #communs, la #gouvernance (commons, liquidemocracy, faircoop), la #monnaie (libre et p2p, la #micro-industrie (fab-labs), la distribution (p.ex. inventaire.io ou Gasap/SCooP, ...), etc... sur base de réseaux #maillé ouvert, légitimes (http://perspective-numerique.net/wakka.php?wiki=TroisRegimesDeLegitimitehtml), de courte portées (sans monopole) se relayant sur base de protocoles communs consentis... les outils numérique nous en donnent les moyens !

Et ironiquement,on a énormément à apprendre justement en utilisant ces outils de simulation, pour modéliser des issues possible à la dystopie en vue. Les GAFAM&MonsentoNestleIBMFoxconnAlibabaEtc, aka EVILCorps... ne sont pas la solution dans leur structure hyper-pyramidale, tout comme le stalinisme qui mène à une dictature du prolétariat ne nous intéresse pas. Nous voulons êtres des travailleurs/euses libres, pas des prolétaires enchaîné/es à une hiérarchie cristallisée.
En ces temps de changements globaux, les humains ont besoin d'une structure sociale souple, capable de s'adapter à des flux importants de population et à des changements d'habitude rapides. Le "vieux système" croule de toute part, trop rigide, les extrêmes ont du succès de par ce manque total de souplesse.

de l'éthique du libre pour un radeau vers un beau rivage



Ca semble aussi tomber dans l'oreille de certains partis, jeunes comme le Parti Pirate, ou plus ancien comme Ecolo en Belgique p.ex. mais souvent de manière encore fort brouillonne, et ne percevant pas l'urgence ni les ramification ou l'emballement que tout peut prendre de manière "systémique" (ou sans moyen d'action). Ne parlons pas des partis traditionnels, qui ne semblent bien loins de la réalité dans leur ensemble ( qu'est-ce qu'on fume à l'assemblée ? ha oui, c'est les pots de vin qui pètent ... soyons démago ;) ) Les mouvements citoyens actuellement remontés contres les lois et décisions libérales (lois Travailles! et "Peeters", etc) que ce soit vers la gauche ou la droite ne voient pas non plus la vague venir, ni la perspective d'une économie démocratisée dans la pratique (cad dont les moyens de production et de décision reviennent aux participant/es, travailleurs/euses et citoyen/nes). Les mouvement écologistes commencent seulement à comprendre "le numérique", sont encore loin de l'économie distribuée (ha oui Uber (!) ou laruchequidioui (!!)) et n'ont encore aucune idée de ce problème des IAs. (rem : que Hawkins et Musk dramatisent bizarrement, les dangers sont plus immédiats, dans l’interconnexion de tout ces systèmes)

De mon point de vue : la terre a déjà tremblé, la vague de fond est en marche, et prends de la vitesse. Quand elle sera sur la plage, courir ne servira à rien. Mais on peut la prendre en amont. Un de ces radeaux pour prendre la vague en préparation (liste de course) : http://brain.hackerland.be

"la route est longue, et la voie est libre ..."



Slogan de Framasoft, c'est aussi ce qui ressort d'un atelier de plusieurs jours sur le thème de la résilience à Bruxelles en juin cette année, rassemblant une douzaine de "Changemakers" auquel j'ai participé, et qui suit tout un mouvement (p.Ex. POC21, opensourceecology.org, etc... ). Ce n'est pas une question "morale" comme semble le proférer certain "évangélistes" du libre et que critique Thierry Crouzet à juste titre, mais bien la question éthique au sens spinoziste et pratique du terme : l'ensemble des conséquences du choix du non-libre pousse à préférer tant que possible le libre, même au pris de perte temporaires ou locales d'efficacité.
Pas de totalitarisme mais une indication de choix. Par contre, ça peut servir à découvrir de nouvelles contrées, en utilisant les nouvelles "puissances" pour ouvrir les possibles tout en respectant l'équilibre vital sur terre. Le paysage qui se dessine, entre #permaculture et #micro-industrie #distribuée, avec des robots comme extension des humains et non comme machine de contrôle, est probablement encore trop loin dans l'imaginaire commun, mais pourrait ressembler à un petit paradis, pour tous. Et même si le changement met du temps, il ne faut pas renoncer à prendre la route. La question du libre qui sert actuellement à la fois à la construction de cette dystopie et permettrait d'en sortir est simple : il s'agit d'un "pharmacon" : un poison ou un remède, en fonction de l'usage. A nous collectivement de nous saisir de ces outils pour ne pas qu'on nous en impose leur usage.

Ten years anniversary of Openmoko



An interesting and rather sad retrospect by free software hero Harald Welte:
It was about building a #smartphone before #Android or the #iPhone existed or even were announced. It was about doing things "right" from a Free Software point of view, with FOSS requirements going all the way down to component selection of each part of the electrical design. ... What does this mean in practise? We're stuck with a smartphone world in which we can hardly escape any vendor lock-in. It's virtually impossible in the non-free-software iPhone world, and it's difficult in the Android world. In 2016, we have more Linux based smartphones than ever - yet we have less freedom on them than ever before. ... So yes, the smartphone world is much more restricted, locked-down and proprietary than it was back in the #Openmoko days. If we had been more successful then, that world might be quite different today. It was a lost opportunity to make the world embrace more freedom in terms of software and hardware. Without single-vendor lock-in and proprietary obstacles everywhere.

(This is one of the reasons, why I refuse to use a "smart" phone.)
