In this image: 3 different types of devices all running some form of #KDE #Plasma and some form of #AlpineLinux:

- the laptop, a #System76 machine, running Alpine Linux with the latest Plasma Desktop
- the TV, a #rockpro64 from #Pine64, running #postmarketOS with #PlasmaBigscreen
- the smartphone, a #Librem5, running #postmarketOS with #plasmamobile

Can't wait for my smartwatch next! 😜

@7daq0 Oh no the TV is just a regular smart TV (sadly) running Android. The RockPro64 is just plugged in via a HDMI cable

@bart
So u cannat watch TV through this. But videos and so on work I guess. What are your uaecases?

@7daq0 The use-case is anything you would normally use Kodi for I suppose. Smart TV functions without having to rely on whatever systems comes on your TV.

You could watch TV through it using external TV receivers, there are USB ones available. But I'm not sure there is an app for it yet, I doubt it

@7daq0
For me the strangest in the photo is the laptop running alpine with a desktop environment :P
@bart

@dimitrisk @7daq0 What's strange about that? I've been using it for like 2 years now, my desktop runs it as well

@bart
Good to know! I mean... strange in the sense that I have never heard of people using alpine for desktop.
@7daq0

@dimitrisk Ha, well it happens 😉 I love it personally. A bit like Arch as in you have to setup your system manually from CLI but more minimal and lightweight, a lot is split out into subpackages so you can install just what you need. Also really easy to contribute too. And in my case I'm dogfooding my own KDE packaging of course

@dimitrisk
It's my daily driver since two years now, been running it on servers since a few years before that. Solid, stable, easy to grasp. PostmarketOS is a really cool derivative project I just haven't gotten around to try on a device myself yet.
