About the project
Project Name: postmarketOS
postmarketOS is an alternative phone operating system based on Linux, which aims to give people back control of their existing smartphones by focusing on privacy, security, and sustainability.
Team: Person 1: Oliver Smith, Martijn Braam and Clayton Craft
postmarketOS replaces the operating system on many Android and Linux-powered smartphones and tablets, giving them new life long after manufacturers have stopped supporting them. This allows for users to have a secure and privacy-focused smartphone, and reduces e-waste by giving these devices a new lease on life. postmarketOS was started in 2016, and has since grown into a large community-driven project with support for hundreds of smartphones, tables, and smartwatches.
