Only a short time left to support Libre Tea Computer Card; crowdfunding ends August 26th

by Donald Robertson Contributions Published on Aug 24, 2016 04:16 PM
The crowdfunding campaign for Earth-friendly EOMA68 Computing Devices project on Crowd Supply ends August 26th.

We wrote previously about why you should support the Earth-friendly EOMA68 Computing Devices project. It's built around devices with interchangeable parts, based on unencumbered hardware standards, and with a dedication to protecting and promoting user freedom. The project's decision to raise funds via Crowd Supply means that you can support their work with anonymous payments, and without the use of proprietary JavaScript.

As we wrote previously:

The Libre Tea Computer Card is built with an Allwinner A20 dual core processor configured to use the main CPU for graphics; it has 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of NAND Flash; and it will come pre-installed with Parabola GNU/Linux-libre, an FSF-endorsed fully-free operating system.

It's a device with a lot of potential, and purchasing one will help support the development of even more hardware that respects users' freedom. While we will have to make a final evaluation before granting Respects Your Freedom certification, we have high hopes given the history of the developers involved and the details currently available.

When we last wrote about the project, there was an outpouring of support, helping it get significantly closer to its funding goal (at the time of this writing, 85% there). But with just days left, we need to make one final push. Can you be the one to put the project over the top by backing the Libre Tea Computer Card? The final deadline is Friday, August 26th, so now is the time to act if you want to help promote the creation of devices whose software is fully under your control.
