A problem for me is that Foss projects seem to get mixed in with closed source. other than fDroid is there another way to find projects?
I was a bit shocked at it all.
I guess I could turn my back on android if there was an alternative with the basics?
as for running linux on top of android, that sounds interesting. if we have that running on a custom android kernel I guess then we're getting free of google now? but the 4gb limit and no phone is a problem. surely there's still the problem of no drivers.
By the way, yes I have looked at permissions and I watch and alter these but I get the impression that its far from watertight.
Finally, how's about getting a linux command line other, what's the low down on that. I have busy box only at the moment.
Batterylife is a consideration in all this and I wonder if there's a project in android like LinuxFromScratch. I'd love to build it up slowly, understanding it a bit at a time and noting battery life along the way.
How do the linux on mobile projects compare? Is there a compromise... like an android in linux emulator?
How does iOS on iPhone look from a linuxer's point of view too?
