LXLE Linux is a self funded community Linux distribution. User contributions through donations and store purchases help cover the administrative and hosting cost of the distribution. We do not send any emails to our users asking for donations, nor do we charge for providing support through our user forums, wiki, or mailing list.
Regardless of our no nuisance philosophy, contributions and purchases are extremely important to making ends meet. At times its also a gesture of gratitude for the work put into building the distribution and providing free support. We developed a few ways to donate to the project.
We apply "Rotation Donation" to contributions. This means that for every donation made to LXLE. We will split that donation every month with a developer/organization that makes LXLE possible. Splitting each and every donation proved troublesome and costly due to processing fees.
We are introducing a new donation system that will automatically display your name and donation amount beneath. While the new script claims you will be the 'first donor' that is actually not the case as a number of individuals have graciously contributed monetarily to encourage continued development and support.
After trying many distros like many people, I am so happy with LXLE. Love it!!!!! Works consistently well. The LXLE team are to be commended for such a fine job. Keep up the great work!! ~Randy
