We need your Support
This funding campaign has three main objectives:
- Contribute towards keeping our online services up and running.
- Allow the lead developer to work on Linux Lite full-time. At the moment, Jerry holds down a full-time job as well as working on Linux Lite in any spare time he gets. As well as his full-time job, he currently spends 3 -5 hours a day working on Linux Lite.
- Support and help fund other free software and open source projects that Linux Lite relies on.
Linux Lite is based on the Ubuntu LTS series of releases. LTS stands for Long Term Support, this means each release has a support period of 5 years. This is a great basis for stability, but not only that, you only need to install once every 5 years. During that period your system will continue to receive updates. Linux Lite is fully functional out of the box, this means that you won't have to install extra software when you boot your computer for the first time. We believe that a computer should be ready to use straight away on the first boot after a new install. You're going to need this kind of functionality on a daily basis when you are using your computer so we take the hassle out of trying to find the right software from the start.

"It’s simple. Linux Lite is, hands down, not only one of the best “lightweight” Linux distributions I’ve ever used, but probably one of the single best distributions geared toward new users."
"The distribution does a lot of things well, is easy to set up and use and the project offers us a lot of beginner friendly documentation. Linux Lite provides a great balance of speed, user friendliness, features and stability. Linux Lite is an excellent option for users seeking a user friendly, lightweight operating system."
"A delightful, tasteful distro that makes Linux feel like a breath of fresh air. The distro is an exceptionally good example of what can be achieved when the right combinations of desktop, tools, programs and ideas come together."

"A delightful, tasteful distro that makes Linux feel like a breath of fresh air. Linux Lite is a distro that finds favour wherever it’s installed, but for some odd reason is often left to one side, or forgotten completely when the talk turns to fresh, lightweight and manageable desktops. We’ve no idea why, but suffice to say that the new version of the distro is an exceptionally good example of what can be achieved when the right combinations of desktop, tools, programs and ideas come together."
