I wonder if the EU could be convinced to fund some mobile GNU development, especially of touchscreen UI for existing apps, so they have a mobile OS option that isn't controlled by a single US corporation (Goggle or Apple)?

@strypey Particularly considering that some consumer banks in the EU are *excusively* accessible by Apple or Google-distributed apps & the fact that having a bank acct in Europe is mandatory for tax-related transactions. Cash transactions above a limit are banned in #France & #Belgium.. so effectively, EU residents are forced to use Google or Apple.


Add Spain to the list of countries. IIRC the limit is 2000€
