I installed Fairphone OpenOS in November 2017 from scratch on a new FP2.
I have been working with computers since 1975, and have never experienced such a mess with software. I am Working with Linux since 1997 , first suse and since 2003 with debian, always stable. Now at this age SW developpers expect us find their problems with green banana SW and to change their diapers too. I am really pssssed with this android shhht. I see on google that I shall install a developper environment to be able to find errors. All the good documentation and logging, which linux had, is gone somewhere and not to be found any more.
I want some Open OS based on a debian installation or similar, with instructions, manuals and howtos and logging in /var/log. I am not willing to learn a new OS just because I need to use it. Each time I upgrade the apps, Contacts calendar, files, and other personal information is lost again on the stupid fone. Never had this with SuSe and debian. I still have the files from 198x from DOS to Windows and to suse 4.2 to 7.3 and on my debian from sarge to stretch.
Probably It makes sense for Fairphone OS staff to join forces with other OS developpers to speed up the bug resolution. Do we need that may OpenOS? We need one which works.
Probably I dump the whole thing and sell my dumb fone, because it simply takes too much time for trouble shooting, and I want to do my projects and not be a developper for google and a thousand defective apps.
