As you may have already or seen on You Tube, Elementary OS wants you to donate to download their distro http://http://blog.elementaryos.org/post/110645528530/payments:o

I have distro hopped looking for the distro for me. Some I downloaded and liked. Some I could not even install because of no automatic partitioning. I stopped using a rolling release after GUI updater broke. I am still using Linux Lite that I started using in January last year after trying the rolling release for about a month. I still watch and read reviews and download distros to see what they look like and to try find a backup in case my chosen distro, Linux Lite is ever discontinued.  :'(

I have donated to Linux Lite after using awhile and probably will again. :)   I would not "donate" just to try a distro out whether I installed it or just tried it on the live DVD/CD.

I won't buy a car without a test drive either.  ;D

Hello!

Coastie, I know what you mean. Besides this one, I haven't run into very many distros I'd support, either - financially or otherwise.

As I approach one year of using LL and participating in the forums here, I guess it's time for me to became a 'donator' - a title that, albeit a correct one, seems a little bit awkward to me. Perhaps it has to something to do with 'the Queen's English'...

Maybe it is the New Zealand English dialect?  ;)

Hello!

If Her Majesty does, it doesn't show, so the world may NEVER know!

A doughnut is a doughnut, unless a cop is munching it. Then it becomes a 'donut', as in 'do nothing'...

I was very p*ssy when I became a "Senior Member" on the SolusOS forum.
I don't mind old git or most things but to say my member is old and feeble  and past it takes the bisquit even if it's true

After using LL and getting support in the forum, I donated/supported with $.
Try paying a small amount for ANYTHING support related with Windoze, LOL.
Whatever you want to call it is fine, just be sure to define what it means.
Awesome community here !
