SliTaz Community Funding

Hi everyone, as the founder of SliTaz; the project will always be kind of my baby and I'm so grateful to all those who have worked and still work to make SliTaz better, secure and fast! The project has been alive now for 16 years and is mainly funded by the developer community.

Today, the first day of autumn, I launched a fundraising on GofundMe. With this fundraising, I would like to pay for the project's costs (domain, server etc), defray active developers, repay the funds invested by developers and ensure the project's sustainability.

We did not ask for any donations these past 6 years (actually more... the last one was in 2014), but now it would really help! I know the devs are not the best communicators and ask for help, but they are amazingly skilled ;-)

Any small amount helps, sharing on social media, likes, comments, etc! Let the power of the community do their magic!

Thank you!

SliTaz Next Cooker update

Yesterday, as a day-off project, I updated the look and feel of the SliTaz Next Cooker. I did it completely as I pleased, separately from the regular SliTaz Cooker.

SliTaz Next Cooker is a place where we moving to the upcoming SliTaz release, based on GCC-6.2.0, Glibc-2.24, Kernel-4.9 et al. All that things are the steps to a modern distro, but are incompatible with the current SliTaz Rolling packages, so they are developed and updated separately.

Features of SliTaz Next Cooker:

SliTaz devs always active!

Hi all, we may miss communication but the Hg code repositories are buzzing! SliTaz is coded by a bunch of people working in their free time and everyone does their best. We know a stable version is wanted by the user community. Please bear with us :-)

Announcing the PiClass project

This project is no longer alive

I am very happy to officially announce the new PiClass project! Our Raspberry Pi Travelling Classroom. The project goal is to provide a travelling computer lab with some robotics components using a Raspberry Pi.

The classroom can support half a class, ie from 10 to 12 students and can travel between school buildings in a suitcase on wheels! All the Raspberry Pi are powered by SliTaz ARM and the workshops are supervised by teachers and passionate SliTaz developers.

To start the first PiClass for kids in Switzerland we created an online fundraising. The material will be used for school lessons, workshops and open Jams.

By making a donation, you enable children to receive free computer and robotics workshops and you will help SliTaz developers getting some passionate work!

Opération Libre à Gérardmer

Bonjour à tous,

Ce week-end du 17 et 18 mai nous avons participé à une opération libre dans Vosges organisée par nos amis de chez Framasoft. Le carde était magnifique et l'ambiance très sympa. Il y a eu du monde tout au long de la manifestation, avec des personnes qui venaient découvrir Linux et le libre et des presonnea qui connaissaient déjà le monde du libre. Nous avons aussi eu l'occasion de rencontrer des utilisateurs de SliTaz, ce qui fait toujours chaud au coeur!

J'espère que l'opération libre aura aussi lieu l'année prochaine. C'est aussi pour moi l'occasion de passer quelques jours avec Pascal Bellard, de coder ensemble et parler de SliTaz. Nous en avons profité pour préparer et publier un SliTaz 5.0 RC2.

En tant qu'enseignant c'était un grand plaisir de partager avec la communauté Framasoft et de pouvoir faire des démos de ce que je fais avec les élèves en informatique et robotique. Vous trouverez plus d'info au sujet de l'opération libre sur le Framablog
