"The Finns who refuse to give up on Sailfish OS"

From the Engadget article:

Wander the halls of Mobile World Congress and you'll notice a theme on almost every phone manufacturer's stall: Android. Google's operating system has slowly suffocated every "alternative" adversary including Firefox OS, Ubuntu Touch and Windows Phone. But in the middle of hall five you'll find an unlikely holdout -- Sailfish, a quirky mobile platform by Helsinki-based developer Jolla. Walk by the company's stall and you'll find a small group of Finnish employees eagerly showing off the few phones that run their swipe-based software. They're grinning like children, which is no surprise given the hell they've been through to get here.

There are some tidbits from Jolla history and answers to tough questions in the article. We in the community are important for the company and should keep our eyes wide open to what the mostly Android mobile world out there thinks about Sailfish OS.

Thoughts?

About time Jolla gets some positive underdog mentions in the press.

Like others here I think SailfishOS is amazing and it's good to see something different to Android/ iOS. I would like to think the fact that they have come this far, means they're here to stay.

Hopefully, the apparent, new owners are supportive, Rostelecom

Used Google translator to try to read the article and I think the deal is about Sailfish Mobile OS RUS, not Jolla. Check this https://together.jolla.com/question/172654/what-are-the-differences-between-sailfish-os-and-sailfish-os-rus/
