Here is what we currently know on alternative operating systems.
Tech savvy users will also be pleased to know that we’ll support other independent, community-driven OSes beyond Android. We’ll offer loaner devices and driver support (under NDA) to core developers. We’ve already approached to some Lineage OS developers as a first step and plan to work with Sailfish OS developers & other communities. Our hope is to build a handset that runs your favourite OS.

I would also like to see official Sailfish OS support.February 28, 2019 at 12:26 pm #5772
Installing Sailfish OS is a must for me.
I have wanted a new keyboard phone for years, but if I’m stuck with Android I’ll just keep waiting.
Pretty sure we will at least see a community edition pretty soon after release, if not before. A lot of sailfish fans have been waiting for this type of device a long time.February 28, 2019 at 7:10 pm #6190
This Device with Sailfish OS would a Dream for me.March 3, 2019 at 3:10 pm #7293
can Pro1 support multiboot like N900?March 3, 2019 at 6:50 pm #7338
I’m curious if it will be “official” Sailfish. Based on my limited understanding, devices that have official Sailfish can run Android apps, and devices with unofficial community ports of Sailfish (i.e. Motorola Photon Q) cannot.
So I’m curious if Sailfish, when installed on Pro1 (I certainly wouldn’t expect it to come pre-installed), will support the alien whatever for android apps.
And as the last poster asked, I wonder if running multiple OS’s would be possible (sailfish, stock, and lineage all on same device, with grub type bootmenu etc)March 5, 2019 at 9:36 am #7636
Have you thought about supporting Ubuntu Phone on this device? With the physical keyboard it could be a perfect match for engineers! You can now run android apps threw containers but you also get full linux functionality on the go, with a keyboard :D
Thank youMarch 11, 2019 at 5:15 pm #8601
Does anybody know if we are likely to see confirmation of LineageOS being available during the pre-order period?
