The comment sections on the articles that have appeared on the agreement, there is a trend that says this project is dead in the water. This is even happening in our very own Telegram channels, such as the Spanish KDE - Cañas y Bravas. In general, the reasons given are variation on one or several of the following:
- "Canonical tried and failed, hence KDE/Purism will fail",
- "They won't have any apps, hence they will fail.",
- "The phone is too expensive, hence they will fail."
- "Google and Apple are too powerful, hence they will fail."
Turning a negative into a positive, I propose that with this task we keep the story of the agreement in the public eye by explaining why the reasons above are not correct, explaining why, sure, we may fail, but not for the reasons given above (or at least not for 1, 2 & 4 -- 3 I am doubtful about. Then we can blast the media (social and otherwise) again. The uptake will not be comparable to the launch, of course, but, if we write the texts write, we will be able to squeeze it into some outlets looking for content.
