CrunchBang: The Rest of the Story

Wednesday 18th of February 2015 11:37:14 PM
Here’s the rest of the story regarding successors, spins or forks of CrunchBang. The tech media is falling over itself reporting that the “successor” to CrunchBang is something called #!++ which, to many CrunchBang insiders, is nothing more than one — but not “the resurrection” — project based on CrunchBang. It’s a project that appears, in the opinion of many CrunchBang contributors, as one that is trying to capitalize on the name, now that it’s “available,” in a manner of speaking.

Should Linux distro developers expect to be paid for their work?

Wednesday 18th of February 2015 08:58:37 PM
I wrote a column a while back called “Distro developers need dollars” where I included links to distro donation pages. My thought then was that it was a good idea for distro developers to get financial support from users whenever possible. I still feel that way, however, there’s a flip side to that idea too.What happens when a distro developer solicits financial support in a way that some people think is obnoxious? Is it possible for developers to go too far in trying to make money from their distribution?
