Linux-based mobile operating system postmarketOS already supports 200 mobile devices

postmarket OS

For more than a decade now, the mobile market has been dominated by devices running iOS and Android. Many have tried to take the throne away from them, but for now, at best, they have managed to make a bit of noise. The trend looks like it may change a bit in the future, thanks to mobile operating systems like postmarket OS, who uses KDE software mostly. And more now, which is expanding to more devices.

According to a report by TuxPhones, postmarketOS can now run on more than 200 devices, which includes mobiles and tablets. To understand this feat, it must be taken into account that the operating system was born in 2017 and has already become the leading mobile operating system based on Linux. Furthermore, an operating system as popular as Ubuntu Touch currently only supports 23 devices, with another 14 that are in progress.

Much of the demand is due to the installation methods, tools and guides to get postmarketOS installed on our mobile devices. Besides, also allows us to choose between graphic environments Plasma (Mobile), MATE, GNOME, Xfce and Phosh. As if that were not enough, it can also be installed on an iPhone 7 / Plus, where Wayland is included, all thanks to Project Insanity.

If you are interested in testing postmarketOS on your mobile device, the first thing you have to do is go to your Wiki page y see if your device is supported. If it is, from the same page we can access the Wiki of each of the devices, where there will be a link to the installation guide.

As a personal opinion, I have to say that an operating system like this catches my attention, but I think it won't be the best option if we can't run some mobile applications. In any case, it is working for can run android apps, which could change the rules of the game.

    Surely it is entered by root, but how will it be to adapt it? So that you do not have the same problems as the custom Roms, both in the camera, WiFi, fingerprint reader and etc. Everything is a matter of waiting. But I would like. And more if it gives the possibility of reviving old mobiles. And others discontinued like windows mobile
