PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Two weeks ago, as I was busy finding out in Vegas that double-shot frozen cocktails are a really stupid idea, a small Finnish startup unveiled their mobile operating system: Jolla unveiled Sailfish. With a strong focus on the Chinese market, the company is aiming to offer serious competition to Android's dominance of the smartphone market.

This is interestingt, from the sailfish FAQ:

Will you support DRM
No.

I really despise DRM but if the phone can't for ex. play youtube videos then a lot of people would probably chose another phone.

Sailfish is open. Others are free to add support for it.

Really? From what I've read google offers DRM protection for stuff uploaded by their "partners".

Besides, youtube was just an example. There are other popular streaming media services who rely more on DRM.
