About NEMS Linux
I'm so excited about NEMS. I feel like I've created something that needed to be created. Nagios is notoriously difficult to setup and configure, and I'm working hard to make NEMS the easiest out-of-the-box experience ever -- and one that runs on affordable hardware.
Important Note for Patrons
NEMS Linux is free to download and use. I've worked hard to create interesting and useful perks for Patrons to enjoy, but these do not make NEMS Linux a commercial product. By becoming a Patron at any level, you are choosing to support me and the development of NEMS Linux. You are not buying NEMS Linux. It's still a free product, but your support comes with perks.
With this thought in mind, please remember that I am one guy developing NEMS Linux in his free time. The offer of priority support to Patrons means what free time I dedicate to NEMS will be prioritized to assist Patrons first. It does not mean that you are paying for commercial support, nor does it mean that I can always be on call or able to provide immediate resolution to every problem. It simply means that if I have two calls come in and one is from you, a Patron, I'll respond to yours first.
Thank you for choosing to support NEMS Linux, and its nerdy developer, me!
NEMS is an established product. The first release was on May 8, 2016. Since then, there have been several major releases and exciting progress to get NEMS to where it is today. Check out the changelogs to see for yourself:
NEMS Linux is continually evolving, and with every major release and every minor update, it becomes better and better. There are times when bugs creep in, and I do my best to remediate these as quickly as possible. I appreciate each and every user who takes the time to report any issues encountered, and the patience as I work out a solution.
NEMS Linux is free. So I've setup perks to give something back to Patrons and add value to your monthly contribution. Please review the various support tiers, and let me know if you need something customized.
All patrons, at any level, will receive early download access to major NEMS Linux releases.
You Will Be Charged at Sign-Up
To ensure you have immediate access to Patron-exclusive content, you will be charged at the time of sign-up, and then on the 1st of each month. This is usually not a problem, but please do keep in mind that if you sign up on the last day of the month, you will be charged two days in a row.
About NEMS Linux
NEMS Linux is free to download, deploy, and use. It is created by Robbie Ferguson (that's me!)--the host of Category5 Technology TV. As a free product, NEMS' development is supported by its community of users. Your patronage will help me further improve NEMS, offset the cost to operate, code, update and distribute NEMS, and even allow me to do things like purchase other SBC's to port NEMS Linux to. I also dream of being able to buy ad space to promote NEMS, and would even like to be able to afford to donate NEMS appliances to charities who could benefit from it.
