I really enjoy this projet, and hope it will become true as soon as possible, and for this i wish all the best to the team.
That said, I think the operating system HAS to be free. It is not just a wish from some future customer, it is the best option for a device like this.
I’m not asking your company to support all different code customizations, of course. I’m just asking to give us freedom. It would be contradictious to have a closed source OS while your are promoting security and privacy.
No matter we like the phone and the OS, if we can’t check the code, we have no reason to trust you more than Apple, Google, Microsoft, etc.
Another great aspect would be allowing people to exchange code with Mudita on tools like GitHub. Open source community could even help you in making the product better and better, meet more individual needs, help in debugging, and the most important, allow us to stay free.
Be sure i’m not trying to be rude, i just wish to draw your attention to the fact that nowadays, open source software is a real challenge for the future, and it is a strong marketing advantage.
Thank you in advance.
