Does money from buying things in the openbsd store go towards development? If so, how much is it?
There are two primary ways that the OpenBSD project is funded:
$0 from the OpenBSD Foundation goes to Theo, and CD sales have dwindled over the years . Regardless of what one may think of his personality, consider providing support in a means that benefits Theo directly to keep him dedicated to the project.
I’ve heard of people buying the OpenBSD CDs as a form of donation, and you get a nice souvenir to boot.
The profit from the sale of CD’s from the OpenBSD store go to Theo to fund on going development of OpenBSD - unfortunately I don’t think it provides a vast income that the OpenBSD devs deserve…
But that said I like getting my CD sets every six months :~)
+1 TBH, I hardly ever use my CD sets (downloading an ISO is so much easier), I just buy them as a way to support the project. Oh, and for the stickers!
