We aim to get you the best desktop Linux experience and funding our development is the best way of ensuring that continues
With adequate funding, we can continue to develop the very best software. The costs for servers, web hosting as well as developer wages all need to be paid. The more revenue we make, the more developers we can hire to support and enhance our products.
Shiny OS encourages users who want to see our OS flourish to make a contribution and donate funds where they able to do so. Shiny OS employs a pay what you want model. You will get all features regardless of whether or how much you contribute.
Community contribution is our main source of funds although we do make use use of limited commercial means as well.
We make use of affiliates to earn commission on qualifying sales
Another source of funds for our development comes from sales of third party products on this website. We aim to monetize these in a reasonable manner. Our shopping menu also redirects to our website to help facilitate more sales. A price comparison engine is in the works too for the major online shopping companies (Amazon, EBay et al).
We are looking for sponsors
Commercial sponsors who can supply significant monthly funds is also a priority for us. In return for such funds, we will publish major sponsors on our website, installation media and about dialogs. Sponsors should contact us via the contact page.
