  1. So one day later we now know (thanks to Phoronix) that the greedy folks over at Purism blew it: 1. Librem One was released with a nasty security flaw. 2. People are calling Purism out for rebranding open source software and charging for it. And if that’s not enough, you can still buy one of their hugely over-priced “Linux” laptops to run this stuff on. Here’s a link to the full Phoronix article: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Librem-One-Rough-Day

    1. To be fair, they’re not charging for the apps, those are available for anyone to download for free. They’re charging a subscription fee that will likely pay for the infrastructure to manage the backend services.

      But yeah, the security flaw on release day is pretty embarrassing.
