The End of Pinguy Linux?

In an announcement made by Pinguy Developer, it was announced that they were thinking of putting an end to the project due to the cost of maintaining it.

Thinking about killing off Pinguy OS. It is costing me more to run than I get from the project. The project is a sink hole.

For the last 12 months I have been personally financing the project to keep it afloat.

The project isn’t self-financing anymore. I thought Pinguy-Builder would help fund the project, but it hasn’t helped. 120hrs to produce Pinguy-Builder/fork Remaster was a complete waste of time.

I even tried doing a bounty for elementary OS to keep the project afloat, but they don’t pay out: http://i.imgur.com/hv9aG6D.jpg

I loved making Pinguy OS and interacting with the open source projects and helping them, but at some point you have to call it a day.

At least I have made a difference. Bodhi, Linux Lite, elementary OS and Budgie Remix I had a hand in helping getting them started.
