After last weeks discussion in the after show about Gnome 40 and some of the interface changes being made, we couldn’t help but compare those changes to one of the most beloved operating system of it’s time. In this episode, we’re going to talk about this OS to find out why so many on the show consider it one of the greatest mobile Operating Systems ever. In addition, we’re going to check out some new goals and updates coming to Tails in 2021. Plus we’ve also got our famous tips, tricks and software picks. All of this and so much more this week on Destination Linux.

  1. I think it would be interesting to see a resurgence in WebOS on a mass scale. I can’t remember why I was so much more pro Android at the time, something I regret now, but seeing some kind of open source competitor is absolutely a dream of mine… and I’m sure a hand full of others.

    Thanks, everyone! I used to use Psion organisers then Palm pilots all those years ago for calendar / diary in particular but looks like I missed-out on WebOS almost entirely. Way before then the OS that I think was well-ahead of its time was Commodore’s AmigaOS. Full multitasking, WIMP GUI and CLI/Shell, even text to speech out of the box - late 80s, if I remember correctly! The hardware was phenomenal for its time too :slight_smile:

    Not to self promote but here are my thoughts on it:
