So, everybody knows jolla’s future now is quite uncertain, uncertain as in “only they know, and until they tell us what’s happening we can only guess”, but still, not as bright, althought it has never been bright, and we all know that
Still, they entered in a damn hard market and managed to stay afloat all these years, despite all the difficulties
i entered the boat about 8 years ago, with a jolla phone, coincidentally the same week sailfish 2 was released, and i immediately fell in love with it, because it had a user interface very well tought, not like some other operating systems that put things at the longest distance available from your finger
after 4 years my jolla one begged me to change it with 2 dead batteries and wobbling usb port, so decided to buy an XA2. Unfortunately i needed some applications for work and the sailfish android image wasn’t signed yet, so i stayed about 3 years with android.
Needless to say they were quite a nightmare, cause the ui is really that bad, and apart from that, you don’t really own your phone, you can’t even open the calendar without a google account, so a little bit after the android image was signed on sailfish i switched back, and despite i still think sailfish 1 was the best ui ever, it was really a pleasure to discover that sailfish still has the most beautiful and usable ui ever.
Sure, there are bugs, we all cope with, some more than others, but still, it’s a damn pleasure to use it, more than any other system
We all now hope for the best, and know jolla can do it another time, but if they don’t succeed, let me say, it has been an hell of a ride
Thank you Jolla…
