Firstly, a huge thanks to our current sponsors and all the people who support us with small but very important donations to the project. The project is still quite young but in 5 years of active development we have grown and become a professional grade operating system that is safe to use in production environments.
Monetary support a developer
Do you use SliTaz in your project and want to see the distribution getting even more professional with main developers working on the project full time? If so, you can sponsor the SliTaz Association which will pay a developer to work fully 100% on SliTaz. We actually don't have enough money the pay a developer for the whole year, but the amount of donations and monetary support lets us have a professional working 3-4 months per year on the project. In time we hope to have developers working on a full time basis on SliTaz.
As a open source project we usually develop SliTaz on our own personal computers. But we sometimes have to change our personal systems and need new hardware. We also can't test the distribution on some specific machines as we don't have access to them. If you are a hardware manufacturer and want to see SliTaz working out-of-the-box on your computers you can send us a machine so that we can work on it for you.
SliTaz is built with tools ready for cross compilation and we would like to port SliTaz to the ARM platform. For this we need some ARM hardware to be able to test our cross compiled binaries and adapt SliTaz to ARM architecture.
SliTaz is a great distribution to give an old computer a new lease of life and we need some old hardware to test it on. Also, we may recycle some of your old hardware to preinstall SliTaz on it and then sell it on at low cost. This lets people have a cheap but powerful machine and lets us make a bit of money and also provide a service.
