Iam so ready to buy a Librem. 5. But It has been difficult for me to understand most of what gets posted on your site. I would think many people are just users like myself. I was into computers since the Trash 80s , have college degrees and run a business.
What i am not is a programmer or tech wizard. Although I always troubleshoot for myself and others, I just don’t speak your techno speak and have to admit I am jealous of those that do. (Ex. Power throttling, semi bricked, isenkram, ath9k, etc, etc.)
So it’s easy for me, just a tech user to get lost in the techno linguistic weeds when trying to find basic answers.
- Does Purism actually provide all the services I need. ISP, cellular service, software?
- If I want to protect the pure privacy of my phone, then I probably should not use my business software on it. (Like the real estate lock box app, which I know is probably loaded with tracking locators )
I can use an old prepaid phone that sits in the drawer for that stuff, but that does take away a little from its purpose. The private calls, email, and ability not to be tracked are more important.
Maybe a forum for beginners would help?
A KISS forum for beginners. A glossary of terms. But there are so many terms, that could get to be huge… Well I hope you understand.
I really don’t have time in my life to learn to be a programmer, I just want to be a user. And use your products. I am studying linus and will learn how to use the phone, it just gets tiresome going through the techno weeds.
You are a terrific company that is so needed. Thank you for being brave enough to swim against today’s parasitical currents for consumers.
