Martin sounds almost happy about the future demise of Purism. I know people have accused them of being a scam in the past, but I haven’t followed it enough to know if they are naive or nefarious, but they do seem to draw a lot of attention to the goal of running only open source software, so I’ll be sad to see them go.
Making my way through these wonderful podcasts and you guys seem pretty hard on Purism; are you sore about the Ubuntu Phone (or Edge)? Anyways thanks for entertaining me on the way to and from work. You sometimes join me in the shower too…
