The idea for GoBang came about in November 2012. At the beginning system ISO was published only in one language (Polish) and pointing to a small group of students, studying at the „Administration of the Operating Systems „. As the education program do not provide deeper discussions about the alternative system solutions from the family of operating systems Linux and Unix and most of the issues are based on the Microsoft products, I decided to take care of this problem and start promoting solutions based on codes such as open end free source. The idea is to present a different point of view on the operating systems subject.
„GoBang Project” runs on mixed licenses. The aim is to encourage and help customers to adopt alternative solutions. The GoBang OS includes solutions borrowed from various distributions such as Linux, Unix and also some with the closed source code. The code I have written is a part of GoBang OS and is always licensed by GPLv3.
The project aims to promote a wide culture of Open Source communities dealing with the code, image, sound, art , etc. which stands behind the Open and Free idea.
At the present moment „GoBang Project” is run by me, all costs associated with it I cover myself. As a person not employed I spend my free time to develop and find low-cost solutions to reach customers. GoBang OS does not have commercial target it will always be free.
If you would like to support the development by providing grants, I invite you to read the story of my son’s unfortunate accident. Grants can be addressed for his recovery foundation as a 1% of your income tax refund. Founds collected there will be forwarded for my son’s further rehabilitation.
If you are willing to join the project, share with me your ideas, questions or if you need help, please contact me.
Thank you to all those who contribute to the development and promotion of GoBang.
