After the excitement about the new GNU/Linux Sailfish OS phone Jolla and having tinkered around for a couple of days I come to the, – unfortunate, – conclusion, that the phone is not end-user ready (yet).
Although the OS offers an intuitive, fast and clever handling of the functions, many core functions are yet missing.
Watching the community reports and how desperate many are looking for a well working, nicely developed and secure smartphone, I hope that the Jolla team will come up with an update of the missing features soon.
While Apple Computers decided to rape users rights once more, ceasing the capability to synchronise PIM (personal information management) data locally with OS X Mavericks 10.9 (argueing they should store their data in their iCloud. – Bwahahahaha!1!!) there are too many PIM solutions for GNU/Linux users, whereas none of them are really feasible for users who want to switch to Free Software.
While many complain that there are too few GNU/Linux Desktop users and Linus Torvalds claims this to be his “personal failure” the GNU/Linux community fails to offer a seamless integration of GUI (graphical user interface) PIM into their OS. (Which is really sad, as fiddling around with SoGo-connector, lightning etc. does not offer a sustainable solution…)
So here is my solution:
Get DAViCal, install it on your server and get mutt, pycarddav and khal for your desktop(s), get a Jolla and you will have a beautiful and seamless PIM solution using the “good olde command line”.
