Whilst Simplicity Linux is free, has always been free and will always be free, it’s not free to create it. There are hosting fees, domain name fees, etc. So we are trying a hybrid of something we saw CheckMate do and our own spin on things.
From now on, if you want access to our alphas and betas, you can have them, free as always, it’s just that there will be an advert before the download. Full releases will always be available advert free. It’s just a way of us making a little bit of money to support Simplicity Linux without you, our wonderful users having to do anything or spend anything.
The first bunch of ad supported Alpha images are here:
