What is the best Linux mobile desktop environment? Boost for larger sample size.
It's Phosh, not posh.
IMHO, if we're only talking UI, not number of apps or anything else but UI, Lomiri hands down. I hope it will be available on more distros at some point.
Yeah, there haven't been new Manjaro Lomiri builds in some time. No available people on either side to push through it.
To me, Phosh feels clunky compared to Lomiri. But I believe Purism is working on integrating more swipe gestures in Phosh, so it will certainly improve. One thing I don't like is how when you want to open a new app, the screen splits vertically with small open apps previews at top, and just three rows of the app drawer/launcher visible at the bottom.
@normandc Honest to god I would use Lomiri if Ubuntu touch or Arch Linux Arm Lomiri was available on pinephone.
But Ubuntu Touch _is_ available on Pinephone. Problem is, it's not as mature yet as say, Mobian. The UBports team is very small so they prioritize work on the 20.04 migration and Android devices. Some Lomiri builds were made on Manjaro, but I don't think there have been recently.
I like the Lomiri UI best, but I don't like Ubuntu Touch's design choices, so the best for me would be a more traditional mobile Linux distro with Lomiri, with Linux native apps, flatpaks, etc.
When I say design choices, I mean the system, how it's locked up, not apt compatible, click packages, many things that make it more difficult to migrate projects to and from Ubuntu Touch...
@anotherkiwiguy @TheKernal Phosh is a much younger project compared to the 10 years Plasma Mobile/Active already exists. What you currently see on Phosh, is not how Phosh should actually look like. It is in a state that should be usable and satisfies early adopter users while work on the compositor, gestures, toolkit etc can be done mostly undisturbed. The concepts on which Phosh gets build around are here https://gitlab.gnome.org/Teams/Design/os-mockups/-/tree/master/mobile-shell
