Will come an "e" operation system to personel computers?

e-roadmap

#1

You can bring an “e” OS for personal computers instead of other Android for pc’s
There was Remix OS in past.But it was untrustworthy for us like Android OS for pc’s in nowadays.
Please edit and publish an ungoogleed and trustworthy operation system for personal computers.

Hi, pls have a look on he roadmap https://e.foundation/e-solutions/


#3

I see.But I wish to be brought PC version of “e” OS here.


#4

an x86 port of e will be very difficult and because e is a fork of LOS and there is no x86 LOS, I think we won’t get any x86-e in the future. But never say never :wink:


#5

I think this idea should stay on a corner of your minds as developers…If you publish e for computers,it will be very good.


#6

hi all, just to note: there are already ARM based laptops out there (by qualcomm, its snapdragon 835 and 850 chipsets). They are still quite slow, but very likely the new 8cx chip by them will be a lot faster. This may offer possibilities for the future for developing an /e/ solution for PCs on these chipsets!

The idea of an /e/ OS for PC’s and laptops is the eventual long term goal. We start with the smart phone, then tablets and finally PC’s. That will take some time though.


#8

Yes!!! :joy:
This is amazing. Currently I use Ubuntu OS. But I am beginning to even suspect it!


#9

That would be very weird. U better suspect the apps u have running on it. Linux ftw!


#10

That’s right… I guess you’re right.
But the system can still leak infos.
BTW,Linux is awesome.


#11

H-Have you never heard of Linux? If you’re really touchy on privacy, use Tails or something and get a VPN.

one manufacturer of this rather interesting cheap devices is pine64, which do not only offer the PineBook and its already announced successor, but also work on a PinePhone (expected release: late Q4, 2019), which IMHO looks like the most promising affordable open source friendly phone hardware project out there right now.

all of this pine products are based on very similar hardware – e.g. more or less compatible to each other --, have rather satisfying linux upstream support and are really interested in cooperation and adoption by other open source projects and development efforts.

supporting experimental ports of /e/ on this devices would IMHO be very useful for both projects – i.e. make the benefits of this particular hardware development available to a wider community just as the progress of all the /e/ improvements would strongen the other side.


#13

That’s an interesting project, it would be very nice to have /e/ on Pine64, Olimex and other ARM laptops (and Pine is working on a smartphone too).

And look, Pine64 founder just sent one laptop to us:

Now we need to find the good engineers to work on this project.


#14

It should not be limited with only ARM personal computers.It should come to X86 personal computers too.
Also you can bring that to Raspberry Pi versions.


#15

Yes there are so many more X86 personal computers too. That is so important.


#16

well, only as an advice, right now, you can install Linux mint Cinnamon, xfce, that comes with the hability of sync with nextcloud servers. I did it with e-cloud, and now data between my phone and my laptop are secured and synced. You have a lot of apps for most of all that you need to do. Not perfect, but a good start.
But if you are asking for an android laptop, maybe a good one could be a tablet chuwi 2 in 1. has android + win10, but there are a lot of tutorials to wipe w10, and install a custom android rom.
But i think that my first choice is the best. Performance+secure data+free software.
