Finnix, the LiveCD for system administrators
Finnix is my personal project, but it does take resources to produce. If you would like to help the Finnix projects, there are a number of options available to you.
If you are not interested in stickers, you can still of course donate less than $10. A donation of any amount is gladly appreciated.
Printed Finnix CD
Donations of $20 or more will receive a printed Finnix CD. This CD is very high quality, and printed on a waterproof, high-gloss CD with the latest Finnix version. It is a combination CD, bootable on both x86 and PowerPC architectures, and is not available for download, only through donations. Of course, you will also receive Finnix stickers with this donation as well.
Host Virtual provides datacenter space and bandwidth for the main Finnix services, such as the finnix.org web site.
Linode provides development and testing resources, community support and a number of mirrors to the Finnix project.
At the top-right corner of Finnix web pages, there is an unobtrusive Google ad block. If you see something that interests you, don't be afraid to click the ad. Every little bit helps.
I am currently looking for the following hardware to better test and develop Finnix:
- Intel-based Macs (Intel Mac mini or Mac Pro desired)
- A working 486 system, preferably with a PCI controller
Please email email@example.com to make shipping arrangements, thank you.
