Q: Why Linux.Pizza?
A: Well, you can compile your pizza how much you want and still be able to call it a pizza. The same applies to Linux
Q: What is the purpose of Linux.Pizza?
A: I started this project with an entirely different idea in mind, but I soon realized how impossible the idea was for me so I started just setting up different services free for people to use instead.
Q: Why do you do this?
A: I couldn't first really find anything that was similar to it (I later found disroot.org with a similar approach) and the current tools out there did not offer the user that control they deserve or was hosted on different plattforms or providers. I wanted to make it easier for users to find useful tools that they can use and that respects the users privacy and freedom.
Q: Do you gather any data about your users?
A: I am not interested in any data, I just felt the need myself for those tools and other people might aswell use them too free of charge.
Q: Are you going to add more tools/services in the future?
A: Not at the moment. I sadly lack the time.
Q: Why is the Mastodon instance hosted on masto.host?
A: I launched the instance in June 2018 with a few users only. I realized after a few month that it is a time consuming job to manage an instance. Masto.Host was chosen because the owner Hugo is a person that I trust, and other people should too. I can recommend that you read the following
Q: How do I contact you?
A: Feel free to hook me up on Mastodon or email.
Q: Who pays for all this?
A: I do, because I want give something back to the community and not just leech from it. However, during the latest twitter-exodus - Many of our users have chipped in and covered most of the cost of the social.linux.pizza instance.
Q: Can I donate to the project?
A: Sure! I have set up a LiberaPay account so people can donate if they want. Every penny will go back into the project and cover the cost of servers and domain names such as linux.pizza.
