Your 2024 journey with /e/OS and Murena (and a V2!)

At the heart of /e/OS’s philosophy is a strong belief that individual choices can drive significant change. The decision to use one product over another is a powerful statement about the kind of world we want to live in.

/e/OS challenges users to reconsider their choices, questioning the systems they support through their use of products and services from companies like Google and the net giants.

/e/OS & Murena websites

Last week, we discovered that our two main websites had been supressed from the Google search engine for more than one year. Although this doesn’t seem to hurt us a lot (we get thousands links from external websites), and although it’s quite fun to extend our “geGooglisation” to being totally out from Google Search, we realize that, besides the misconfiguration of some of our web servers, we have to care about our “SEO” (Search Engine Optimization) at some point.

So we are starting a series of videos to show what’s in the OS, how to configure it…

“Linux pioneer Gaël Duval’s /e/ OS is still in beta but it’s available for your smartphone or on refurbished Samsung smartphones.”

” I’m impressed by Duval’s privacy-first approach, which builds on the existing successful Android platform. Instead of trying to replace it, he’s making the best of it. I think with privacy being more of a concern for users and hardware vendors looking for Google-free operating systems, /e/ may be successful where so many others have failed.”
