Aiming for a 10 year life-cycle for smartphones


thank you so much for this episode! I didn’t know about spectrum project. Sounds really cool!

Similarly, I used to be a QubesOS user, however all issues you mentioned made me to start working on “lightweight version” of it. I used LXD (LXC) containers instead of hardware virtualization.

For now I manage those “additional functionalities” by using upstream projects (for instance by calling LXC from cli). To made experience smooth I started writing automation tools like parallel base updater. (Both scripts and GUI tools).

I’m curious how does it behave on alpine as a hostOS, especially on mobile devices (with phosh and wayland).

(In theory it should not be a problem as LXD and rootfs bases are also aarch64)

I called it Panixticon. It’s in alpha but I managed to use it as a daily driver.

If you got interested just send me an email ;)

Than you for creating PostmarketOS!


This looks really interesting, thanks for sharing!

Please do not ask here if we could port your device. We won’t go and buy your device just to do the port. But you can try porting yourself, it is not that hard and we will help you wherever you get stuck in the chat. If that is not an option for you, consider sending a device to a community member who agrees to do the porting for you (check the milestones) or simply add it to the wish list.
