Why Pay4FOSS ?
I wanted to pay for foss but found my time and coding skills were not up to
much, so I conceived this, something I have never seen before. An easy to
read and access dedicated site showing a large number of constructive
ways foss users can pay for their *Free* software.
It would be nice if other foss orientated sites linked to this one with
one of the banners below, but I am not forcing anyone.
Why the Penguin ?
Ah, you have caught me there, the penguin is not in fact the symbol for FOSS but of Linux.
Although not true for everyone, I find Linux is the most well known FOSS project, but others exist such as GNU, but are not so publicly known.
This site ...
I would have loved to have used PHP to create dynamic pages run off a
MySQL database with content management etc, but there was no
need, I had vi and bash. I wrote simple scripts that build the pages from
basic templates and then manually upload them to the server.
If anyone would like to do translations I am more than happy to host
them (please do not just fish translations !)
I am just your average geek with limited time and skills
