Greetings to Matthew and all the Fedora staff,
(I'm sending this email to the mailing list because I haven't received a
response from direct email addresses for months.I hope this is not a
I'm sorry that this project stopped, I don't know the reason, but I must
have done something wrong. So I wanted to ping you and check if
everything is going well over there. I really hope so :)
I have just checked the video of Matthew Miller playing around with the
Framework laptop. Nice video! It's encouraging to see distributions
joining those of us who make hardware.
Does that mean that you guys are going to do a collab together?
This is very good news for the Linux ecosystem, no matter if we really
want to do so too,
I take my hat off (or fedora) to them, Framework, because their
marketing campaign has been nothing but amazing success. They managed to
have it marketed as a Lego-like easy to repair device. But as hardware
experts, we can easily tell that this device is not easier to repair
than any of our products, really. We still supply spare parts for 7 year
old models from our catalog, like the Slimbook Classic or first gen
Katana because we are concerned about the longevity and sustainability
as well (so much that we are Greenpeace’s Spain hardware provider!).
Still, it fills us with joy to see that after a few years around
Windows, the Framework has decided to show interest in Linux. The more
we are in the game, the better for the Linux ecosystem.
Either way, that's a lot of rambling. We are still really interested in
a collab with you with a Fedora Slimbook or anything else, swapping
laptops or helping on source code. As long as it contributes to the
GNU/Linux ecosystem, anything is fine!

I was just talking with Alejandro about this last week, Alejandro
asked me to share my opinion on this initiative here.
I believe this is a great opportunity to differentiate Fedora from other vendors and form
a partnership, and for Slimbook to have an opportunity to be one of the distinct choices
for Fedora users/contributors. I see the project going towards something similar to the HP
dev one, where a specific laptop could be Fedora exclusive an tailored for a excellent
Fedora experience, by choosing the components (if possible) that have good support
upstream both in the kernel and user space with that Fedora version.
Just my 2 cents, looking forward to see where this initiative goes!
