Purism does better than I hoped! After a little bit more than half of the time (33 days passed, 27 still to go), they have half the money (51%) of the 1.5 million USD they need. I'm positively surprised!Now the other half it is up to you!
If you like to have a phone that respects your privacy (so does promise Purism), runs a mainstream Linux distro (PureOS/Debian by default, the most important point for me personally), and has strong focus on freedom and security, please consider supporting their crowd funding campaign!
As long as they do not
reach their goal there is no risk. Your credit card will not be charged before they reach their target. If the reach the 1.5 million USD, they will charge you. Then there is the risk, that they will fail, of course. I think, that they will not fail, because they have some experience with building hardware and they have capable people on board. But, hey, no risk, no fun!
