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.

Shirts and Stickers

We now have stickers available to people that donate through PayPal for this year. They come in two varieties. If you'd like stickers, please send a mailing address with your PayPal donation. To donate, please go to our donation page. Each mailing address sent with a donation will receive one of each variety of sticker.

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 18th to February 1st. If you miss your chance to purchase a shirt, don't worry, we will run the campaign again another time. We have made the shirts as inexpensive as possible, and any proceeds that we receive will be put into the donation pool.

Soon! We have functional UEFI multiboot images in testing, and audio is working on a couple of Braswell devices now. It's still a work in progress, and we appreciate all the help from testers and contributors alike.

Thank You!
