Thanks again for the suggestions. Right now on the Donations page (https://ubports.com/donate) you will find advertisements for Paypal, Bitcoin, Liberapay and Patreon. I like your idea about having a widget provide the running totals of each platform, however I think it will be best (if we were to display any donation amounts at all) that we display a combined number. UBports is a world class operation and we should present only our best attributes.
UBports continues to grow and advance because of all its amazing users. Thanks again for supporting the project.
Hey there, yes, that is a good idea. We'll evaluate our financial options again and check out if it's possible to start doing this before the foundation is here. Can't promise you a time, but we will definitely eventually have t-shirts!

Nevertheless, i also think that people developing for phones exaggerate how bad it is on phones. There are a lot of similarities between phones as well. Many use the same soc:s and probably also are based on the same development kits. Displays are also many times very similar although different brands, I think probably the baseband is the most difficult part, which is quite essential on a phone of course, but hopefully not all the drivers would have to be closed in one big blob the way it is now. I guess it's fair to say that this is all goes into kind of defacto standards, which makes it essentially different from the PC, but i do think it is possible benefit a lot by focusing on the similarities.
Now I had the chance to try again.
I am right now on a Mac and the client is still a bit buggy. But after understanding when it crashes one can easily avoid it.
The call quality is okay. First of all the voice is clear without any garble but it is not insync with the video. The quality of the video is mediocre. As if you are on a low bandwith. All in all thorught an half an hour session stable.
