Free phone operating system

by Georgia Young Contributions Published on Jan 13, 2017 03:09 PM
Smartphones are the most widely used form of personal computer today. Thus, the need for a fully free phone operating system is crucial to the proliferation of software freedom.

Replicant is a fully free Android distribution supported by the FSF through its Working Together for Free Software Fund. It is the first mobile operating system (OS) to run without relying on proprietary system code.
