To all people that are still hating systemd in 2019, first systemd is a collection of programs like in the old UNIX days, second take a look at man systemd.unit(5) for the list of options. Can your 40 years old init system do that with simple INI style config files? Regardless of Linux version?

I'm utterly disgusted by the politicians throwing insults at a sixteen year old merely because she's saying the same things scientists have been saying for decades.

I very much hope the they are mistaken at how easy is the target they chose.

This is the PineTime. A companion for your Linux smartphone, and new side-project of ours. More news coming in the future...

(If you have experience with FreeRTOS or mbed, and are interested, please get in touch!)

Wow, we did not expect the level of interest you all have had in the #PineTime!

More info:
- Cost will be approximately 25USD
- Charging dock included in price
- Built-in heartbeat monitor
- Case built of Zinc alloy and plastic
- Battery life measured in days
- Sorry, can't run Linux itself. SoC is nRF52832, which uses a Cortex-M4 core. That's why we need FreeRTOS :)

@jalcine RMS's work, ethic and philosphy changed my life. If not for RMS, there is a significant chance I would be dead.

It was partly the Free Software ethics, but the work itself. He didn't just ask for a better world, he created it. For me as a teenager, that was a revolutionary idea- that I could personally change the world in that way. I didn't need permission from some company or government. I didn't need to protest, I could simply do it!

They: "Oh Jens you seem like a normal adult dude, what do YOU listen to to get in the mood for art? I am sure its something really high brow and current."

Dear Internet, I'm still confused about when to use QStringLiteral or QLatin1String
