News/2016 Annual Report and Announcement
GalliumOS Project, 2016
As we close the books on our first full year of operations, we'd like to thank everyone who helped make it such a great year for the GalliumOS Project!
Thank you for contributing, answering questions on Reddit and IRC, asking questions on Reddit and IRC, researching configuration tweaks, testing new builds, and reporting successes and failures.
We're looking forward to more in 2017, and hope you'll join us for the ride!
We have some announcements as well as some statistics for the past year.
Stickers and T-Shirts
We will be sending GalliumOS stickers to PayPal contributors in 2017. Be sure to include a mailing address with your PayPal donation, and we'll send you two stickers (one of each). If you've already donated in 2017, thank you! -- and check your email for one from us requesting your mailing address. If you would like to contribute, but do not want stickers, just let us know.
We also have shirts available for a limited time through Teespring. They have the logo with "GalliumOS" on the front in your choice of blue, black, or gray, in unisex or women's. The campaign will run for two weeks, from January 23rd to February 7th. T-shirt pricing is set to cover our costs to Teespring and will not be a significant source of funds for the Project.
EDIT: It's come to our attention that Teespring will be discontinuing the color of blue we're using for our shirts. If you really want a shirt in that particular blue, now might be the only time.
