I am pleased to announce that thanks to Donations made by some members of our Community, we have reached the required figure to pay for the services of FromLinux, and not only did we reach it, but we have surpassed it by far, so now we can retire to the Caribbean ... oh no wait, I already live in the Caribbean. 🙂
Joking apart. As you already know, DesdeLinux has remained active since its inception thanks to the selfless help of its Community, and it is something that we not only want to thank, but it fills us with emotion, because we never thought that this project would get to where it is today, much less, that he had so many great people around him.
Well, we want to thank all those people who helped us, not only financially, but with their ideas and the dissemination of our request for help. But as they say out there: Honor to whom honor is due. And that is why we are going to name the people who provided their monetary contribution so far.
We will not say the amount (or crazy), because any help, no matter how little it may seem, is well received no matter how much it is, so I will only mention them in alphabetical order:
- Carlos F Alonso
- Carlos G. Cortez
- Edder E. Perez
- William Garrido
- Gustavo Grimoldi
- JA Diaz Fernandez
- Jose M. Del Rio
- Julio Sanchez
- Luis Reyes
- Manual of the Source
- Raphael Castro
On the budget.
I quote myself in my previous article: Some asked about how much money we really needed. Well, I will explain to you how the FromLinux money is currently used. To do this, and before detailing the services, I invite you to see the prices of our provider: GNUTransfer.
We are currently using the plans:
- xen 2048 ($ 29.92 / Month, $ 354.04 / Year, or a total of $ 300 thanks to the annual discount.)
- xen 3072 ($ 44.95 / Month, $ 539.28 / Year, or a total of $ 450 thanks to the annual discount.)
Well, the figure reached so far can be seen on the blog's sidebar and as people continue to send their donations, it will be updated.
What comes next?
Well, for now, make the corresponding payments next month and depending on the surplus, we will see if we invest it in other projects on which We have been arguing with some members of The Community.
I can only thank everyone once more. We will have DesdeLinux at least for another year thanks to you .. 😉
