Re: Bryan Lunduke is excited about Purism's Linux cell phone

Peter Turtlebay is NOT excited about Purism's Linux cell phone!

Peter Turtlebay has quietly returned to using an old pay as you go Nokia with phone and text only and is happy to have done away with all the hassle of 'smart' phone addiction.

An instant friend on an alien machine! I can even have my own files if I decide to though that does increase the size of the I...
