The H briefly covers
a panel session at the Mobile World Congress. The panel featured representatives of three Linux-based contenders in the mobile space: Mozilla Chair Mitchell Baker (Firefox OS), Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth (Ubuntu for Phones), and Jolla CEO Marc Dillon (Sailfish OS). "Jolla CEO Dillon remarked at the panel that the time was right to give people alternatives, and like Shuttleworth, suggested that his company is doing its best to do so. The Sailfish SDK is based on QtCreator, the Mer project's build engine and an emulator for the operating system. The SDK is released under a combination of open source licences and the company states its goal with Sailfish 'is to develop an open source operating system in co-operation with the community', but it has not made clear what parts of the code, beyond the Mer underpinnings, it intends to open under which specific licences.
" There is a video of the panel session
available as well.
