xophos Re:NSA too? (70 comments)

The NSA has government-mandated permission so their access doesn't fall under this law.

Sailfish truely open?

xophos xophos writes  |  about a year ago

xophos (517934) writes "Jollas SailfishOS is foremost advertized as truely open. Yet from a FOSS perspective that is not really the case. And i'm not talking about drivers and firmware (those are closed too).

MacOS has an open source core too you know..."
