8 reasons to donate to the KDE Sprints 2015 fundraising campaign

Reason 6 - Help bring KDE applications to your portable device

KDE is bringing freedom to mobile computing—tablets, smartphones, cars, watches and more! Mobile can be anywhere; the elegance and polish of Plasma can be everywhere. KDE is well known for supporting desktop and laptop users. With the growing number of portable devices and their importance to many people,  KDE's impact is expanding too. Your donation supports Free Software at your desk or on-the-go.

+Sebastian Kügler​, I have not made any financial calculation, it was just a thing nice to have as a user/donor. Maybe I'll give a thought about make a business over it even if it could be a thing with a market too small to be possible.

Reason 5 - Benefits Beyond KDE

From the beginning, KDE has been committed to Free Software for all people; it's part of the KDE Manifesto. That includes everyone, not just people who use KDE products and technology. KDE freedom and innovation are available to anyone, to any company. For example, in 2011, developers at the Randa Meetings worked on a strategy to migrate KDE libraries to modular Qt-based Frameworks. As a result, time-tested, high quality capabilities from a wide range of KDE applications are easily available to all Qt developers who can realize substantial savings in time and money. Apple and other tech companies have used software developed by KDE to make their own software products. If you are a computer user, you have probably already enjoyed the benefits that KDE provides. Donate to #KDEsprints and share the technology.

Reason 4 - The most productive way to enhance KDE software
KDE technologies evolve through a number of different efforts by various kinds of KDE contributors. Among these, in-person meetings (sprints) are where the real amazing things happen. Some of the most innovative KDE technologies originated from sprints. The amount of work accomplished during sprints is remarkably high, because contributors dedicate that time exclusively to enhancing the software delivered by KDE, leveraging skills, thinking about the future of technology and our community, and helping newcomers overcome obstacles to being productive. Make a donation and help bring KDE technology to higher levels!

How can KDE have more impact? Find out what people at Akademy thought.
Last year I went to Akademy with two notebooks and sharpies and asked people to draw or write about one thing they think would make KDE better. This year I did the same again. The question was: “What's the one thing KDE should do to have more impact?” Here are some of the great results: ...

more sane defaults?
Users-only don't care about much configuration - they care about sane defaults that dont need config.
But this does not mean to remove configuration possibility - just make sane defaults :~

#2 - You'll help create a supportive atmosphere for new contributors to KDE

Most of the time, free software contribution is done by volunteers who work remotely and communicate with other contributors over the Internet. A lot of KDE development work is accomplished that way. However, there is a remarkable boost in productivity, cooperation, overcoming of barriers and synergistic decision making when developers are brought together for in-person meetings (sprints). Sprints are a catalyst for hard and focused work. They help to build friendships, strengthen motivation, and bring together more experienced contributors. Sprints also encourage participation from new people who are committed to free software excellence, people with technical skills and fresh ideas. Yes, you can help to make all of this happen!

That is not a "donation", that is "paying someone to do something". :)

#3 - KDE independence

Developing high quality software systems is a complex set of tasks that requires time, energy and money. Large corporations in the software industry have the primary goals of revenue generation and market share, often at a cost to users of privacy breaches, vendor lock-in and shady manipulation. The KDE Community is committed to your freedom and strives to stay independent of commercial pressures that have no legitimate free software purpose. Your donation is crucial to maintaining KDE as an independent, innovative organization, where users' freedom, openness, and software quality are the primary goals.

#1 - You can say 'Thank You' for all the nice things Free Software has given to you

Look around yourself! Free Software is everywhere, enabling the most advanced technologies delivered by personal computers, smartphones, TV sets, and other gadgets. We certainly wouldn't be seeing so many achievements without the availability of well-proven, mature, and trusted Free Software. KDE technology has been at the core of a number of current cutting edge solutions.
Donate to the KDE Sprints 2015 fundraising campaign and say a big 'Thank You' for all the nice things we have helped creating for almost 20 years:
