@tinker What's this "Alpine" Linux?
@cow2001 - Just another flavor of Linux. Not sure why they chose it for a mobile OS beyond its security features. Need to read more on their decision philosophy.
“Alpine Linux is a Linux distribution based on musl and BusyBox, primarily designed for "power users who appreciate security, simplicity and resource efficiency". It uses a hardened kernel and compiles all user space binaries as position-independent executables with stack-smashing protection.”
It's also supposed to be supported on the Gemini PDA, along with Debian, Sailfish, and a few others.
@architect - I saw! Hope this continues on!
