I fell guilt for not being able to donate anything, I never accepted the
philosophy that motivates other desktop environments developers, why do
they want to create a desktop the forces the user into buying a new
computer every couple of years? are they even aware that they're taking it
away from the hands of the poor? those who can't afford a latest generation
computer. they are following Google's martial design crap, creating a GUI
that you will never be able to use or understand unless you are experienced
with android! teaching people's brains to follow pictures not words,
impacting the society in a very harmful way.
please let me talk about the society that I live in, I live in Egypt, do
you know what happened after people started following each others like a Herd
buying "smart phones"? porn became a
phenomenon! in an unbelievable way each and every one started browsing,
sharing, and using porn on a daily basis because the "ease of access" that
smart phones provides, I saw people who are over 60 years old who never
knew the existence of "porn" become daily visitors of pornhub, and of
course, other porn-related stuff are now spreading, divorces, home-violence
again, I'm sorry that I can't donate, but I'm motivated to change our
modern world, and I see technology and free-as-in-freedom software to be
the way to go; all I'm waiting for is to finish my finals :)

A big thank you to all who have donated thus far!
Unfortunately, the total received is still *far* lower than the overall
expenditure on TDE this year. For those who have not donated, please
remember that every little bit helps and is appreciated.
Regarding the current PayPal / BitCoin options, the only other option I
aware of is Google Pay to possibly accept
donations. I have personally
avoided Google Pay because it would seem to centralize too much
information (personal life + financial information) in one location,
however it is one of the only other alternatives to PayPal. Would
offering this help those of you opposed to PayPal for various reasons
contribute to TDE?
I think the same as you do. PayPal / BitCoin is better option.
