I'm not a missionary man, so to speak, and thus I will show Jolla to those who wish to try it out but that's it. The best thing going for Jolla for me, in addition to a very usable and non NSA compliant OS, is the battery life compared to at least to Android and iOS devices.

Mind you, I like to try various operating systems, especially if they share the ideology of F/OSS. Thus I am not interested in Android, Windows or iOS. At the moment I also have a phone with FirefoxOS and I will be trying out mobile version of Ubuntu once it is released with or... in a device. I could also try out some of the open source versions of Android - Gyanogenix?

I know that Nexus would be cheaper as wouldn't have to purchase device for each of the OS', but I like to support the companies that make an effort in diversifying the mobile OS market. At the moment, Jolla and SailfishOS, provide me with everything I need.

The only bad thing I can think of right now is that Jolla store doesn't support software written in Python. Hence the users are missing out on some essential software that Maemo devices could offer (for instance gPodder!) Also the support for Webapps (Gecko + HTML5 + js + css) would be appreciated to deploy applications from FirefoxOS and Ubuntu.

In short, I haven't even tried to convert anyone.
