+1 Linux

A long time ago (2018-07-23) Riong wrote in message 24:

<1. Would be benefits if there is official version to repair/troubleshoot or backup/upgrade firmware not just for Linux itself but for versions that supported by businesses like Dell, Lenovo and HP, namely, Ubuntu LTS 16.04, SuSE or RHEL or their "home customers" editions like OpenSuSE or Fedora/ROSA/CentOS perhaps.

2. What I mean no need in support for many versions/distros/edition of the global Linux area but some one way .. at least if you can not support distros you could support format like AppImage that would work in any Linux distros!

3. If the Technical Management will decide to do so but will have shortcomings of the human source , it's possible to create development team , say for 2 month, to transfer code from Windows to Linux under closed agreement between the company and developers, and after to create support/maintenance team from the company worker , maybe 2 , that would be much less than first one. A lot of the mail can be reviewed by modern AI platforms for instance too.

And to test water how many real people use Linux edition of the SONY tools compring the other SONY customers and how many of them use other SONY products.

For instance I use not only one cellular for 5 years buy headsets, TV sets, VAIO laptops and so on.

4. So Cellular Linux customer in my opinion not jut the people use only cellular but many other SONY products. SONY do not loose your customers! We really appreciate your products.

5. In term of the ownership there do exist closed source Linux software and we use it as primarly used operational platform is Linux on servers and in offices and at home.>

 

I think you have had enough time to solve this serious problem.

Since ther are several easy solutions to support the most versions with AppImage/Snaps/Flatpak, there is no excuse for not supporting Linux.
