A few folks have asked how they can support the expenses of running the FLOSS.social #Mastodon instance. There are not a lot of expenses right now (€10/month) but if you're interested in chipping in, you can now become a FLOSS.social "Monthly Supporter"! Donations accepted via CommitChange, who run the free software Houdini Project to manage transactions. 🙂

It is the first step towards achieving "transparency, privacy, and security" as mentioned by CEO of NITI Aayog, Amitabh Kant as the core values on which the application was designed.

"I use Linux less because it’s open source and free software (although that’s a bonus point too), but more because I thinks it’s more user friendly. Installation is fast and simple, updates don’t take ages, I don’t need to crawl the web to find software installers, it isn’t full of bloatware, it runs great on most (even older) hardware etc.
Of course there are use cases where Linux isn’t the best choice (yet)"
FLOSS.social admin. I do open source stuff for multiple organizations and boards; ask for details. :-)
For people who care about, support, or build Free, Libre, and Open Source Software (FLOSS).
