ill take it
Invest in your future.
Done to open-source developers/projects that are trying to compete with jewgle, facecuck, etc
Or give it to me
Give to projects you use or would like to see improved. Just do a little research, you don't wanna give a dev money only to later find out they're assholes who fuck up their products fuck you emby
You could also donate to the FSF
I've heard slackware has some money problems, and it's one of the last systemd-survivors.
Also, maybe more important: disroot.org
theres void too now. it uses runit instead of the horrible shell script init
Give them to krita or blender or both
graphics programs are not really all that important...
But OP should make his own decision.
if only it wasn't a running release distro
Lots of people will donate to those. OP should use the opportunity to bring up some projects that would die without the money.
For Libre Risc-v to succeed, 10 milion $ is needed. But he could donate to the Hurd.
My suggestions is to donate to Haiku, because BeOS was awesome.
Or, if you don't want that, go with ReactOS like another user said.
Don't donate to FSF or any organization too political. Favor those who put technical aspects above everything else.
Did you get that Yangbucks early?
Give it to ReactOS devs. They need all the money they can get now that the gov has pulled fundings until their project becomes usable.
throw money at a literal corpse
No. Slackware is dead and it should be dead.
More popular than Devuan, Alpine or tech's favorite meme Gentoo. On the other hand, ReactOS is pointless.
DDOS the yang gang until they agree to give you onemillionbux
Graphics professionals have money to spend on their means of production, which include the graphics programs and the os both. If you lure them in with high quality programs, they'll finance the os too.
distrowatch popularity matters
How else do you check whether a distro is "dead" ?
ReactOS is still pointless.
Are they having trouble hosting?
Don't think so. This explains the situation: linuxquestions.org
" the Slackware Store (an entity independent of Slackware with which he has a business arrangement involving a percentage of sales profit and medical insurance) has not been paying him any money for the last two years and that most likely all the PayPal donations through the Store have gone into the pockets of the Store owners. Read that thread if you have not done so yet.
Basically Pat is broke."
So that's why the store doesn't work, but I am really surprised they still have the link up on the site.
ReactOS is still pointless.
Every OS is pointless.
and yet you're using one right now
What if he's running a browser from bare metal?
Then I will bow down to him and ask to teach me his ways.
OP: What have you decided?
