@openrisk@mastodon.green It seems to me that there's a market for KaiOS only because no one else had a viable platform for 4G feature phones about four years ago. Closed app store and preinstalled Facebook / Google crap might have helped on the vendor side. I think the KaiOS browser platform hasn't been updated for years and is not in a good shape anyway?

@galaxis @openrisk @aral @jens I'll tell you exactly why hardware manufacturers and mobile devices in particular are averse to FOSS operating systems - it's because they have things to hide.

Usually patent violations but also hardware bugs fixed in binary driver blobs.

@aral @galaxis @openrisk @jens they even achieved updating some gecko versions, which seemed impossible at first.
