That's interesting.

To some extent even web technology can change because
one can use it in a new way.

For example, when I first did HTML no one had ever
heard of CSS and those homepages today would be cut in
half to remove all the design and layup stuff.

(Not that that would much improve the quality of the
actual webpages which must have been
extremely immature...)

I've heard this from RMS as well but I didn't
understand it that time either. What I can see, the
smartphones are so totally unergonomic so they can't
be used to do creative stuff. Only consumption of
material. That doesn't have to be bad. It depends what
you consume. But the problem is if people use
smartphones instead of computers they can never leave
the "consumer prison". I honestly don't see how FOSS
can improve that. So what exactly is it FOSS is
expected to do for smartphones?
