Symbian Source Code leaked - Final version

This was IMHO the best OS before Android showed up.

Lots of people including myself tweaked it a lot and it had potential, only the source was missing at that time.


The same shisensho-style game from two Chinese GNU/Linux distributions. Both are original and GPLed.

Left: RedFlag Linux 4.0 (5.0?), 2005.
Right: Deepin, 2022.

got fedora working with phytium laptop as well... the only pitfall is fedora has all of the firmware blobs compressed, which is not supported by Linux Kernel 4.19.


They are also not advertising their product as "Linux", just "Kylin Desktop/Server Operating System".

Kylin (the Chinese GNU/Linux distribution affiliated with the same military university which developed the phytium soc) has renamed the Linux Kernel to "kylin" and not releasing their modified source code, which is in violation of GPL.
