What is DistroTube?

DistroTube (DT) is a YouTube channel started by me, Derek Taylor (also DT), in October 2017 and was initially focused on Linux distribution installations and reviews.  As the channel grows and I mature in my role as a content creator, I am spending more time on other Linux-related topics as well, including: app reviews, terminal and command line tutorials, desktop environment and window manager tutorials, Linux news and the occasional live stream event.  Sometimes, I even do gaming streams--be warned, I suck at gaming!  Eventually, I would also like to broaden the scope of this channel to include more hardware-related videos and tutorials. 

What you get for helping?

First, know that it is because of your help that the channel will grow in quality, volume and viewership.  Second, every patron will have his or her name added to the closing credits of my videos.  Third, the $5-and-above tiers will be given discounts on DistroTube gear at my TeeSpring store.

Your patronage also grants you early access to some of my content.  Each month I will make four videos available for early access: (1) one video for the $1 tier and above, (2) one video for the $5 tier and above, (3) one video for the $10 tier and above, and (4) one video for the $20 tier.

Goals
$457 of $1,000 per month
Achieving this goal will go along way toward purchasing professional equipment to better produce my shows--audio equipment, video equipment, computers, storage and maybe one day a proper website.  Achieving this goal would also allow me to devote more of my time towards the channel and less time at my "real" jobs.
