The OpenBSD Foundation Announces First Platinum Donor: CII

from the next-we-go-iridium dept.

We have a platinum donor. The OpenBSD Foundation has announced the name of the first platinum donor:

The OpenBSD Foundation is happy to announce that the Linux Foundation's Core Infrastructure Initiative (CII) has made a significant financial donation to the Foundation. This donation is a repeat of the CII's 2014 donation, and like the first is being used by the Foundation to help cover network connectivity contracts for OpenBSD, OpenSSH and related projects. This donation makes the CII the first Platinum level contributor in the OpenBSD Foundation's 2015 fundraising campaign.

Donations to the Foundation can be made on our Donations Page:

http://www.openbsdfoundation.org/donations.html

We can be contacted regarding corporate sponsorship at

fundraising@openbsdfoundation.org

This makes for a significant contribution to the OpenBSD project, and sets an example for other corporate users of OpenBSD technology to follow.

  You know the saddest thing about this great news?

Every time the OpenBSD Foundation announces a new sponsor, little trolls come out from under the bridge and start spouting nonsense.

Things like: "Where is the accountability?" (just look at the Foundation web site), "Where is the money going?" (Beer, BBQ and hardware - duh), "These people will ask you to compromise!" (Just ask DARPA, that worked really well for them), etc... etc... etc...

Seriously, guys, OpenBSD is not going away, and we don't care if Theo shat in your coffee, kicked you around on a mailing-list or refused to take into account your shitty idea or even shittier code.

Stop pretending you "care", and go bother Gentoo Linux maintainers or install the latest Windows service pack or something.

Now, that I have got this off my chest...

This is great news, I appreciate the gesture of CII, and I am happy this donation will be used to improve OpenBSD further!
