In May we have not received any donations.
On the Sponsorship side, we have not gained any sponsors.
This winter DuckDuckGo have approached us to put DuckDuckGo in Firefox. I have tested it and decided to insert DuckDuckGo as the default search engine in Firefox. GhostBSD 3.0 will have DuckDuckGo as the default search engine.
In April we have singed a contract to share revenue generated by the “sponsored links” within the search results seen by GhostBSD users. By using the DuckDuckGo search plugin, you help fund GhostBSD and DuckDuckGo.
We also encourage you to get involved in GhostBSD. Two beneficial ways are to donate to GhostBSD or sponsor GhostBSD. GhostBSD is a free and open operating system, it generates no constant income. It is funded solely from the contributions of the community and is not backed by any organization.
Our ambition is to let our solution compete with commercial equivalents. To help us achieve this goal, please consider supporting the project financially.The donation money is used to fund the hosting, to advertise on other websites and purchase necessary equipment. We are also hoping that at some point we will be able to fund a team of full-time developers.
