Support my work

Most of the Debian work I have been doing since 1998 is available for free, I’m self-employed and have no wage coming in every month. I rely on your support to continue doing the good work that you (hopefully) appreciate. Check below for ways to show me that you like what I do!

Join my newsletter

By joining my free newsletter, you’ll be part of my Debian Supporters Guild—you’ll be treated with care and love. You get my members-only monthly analysis of the Debian/Ubuntu news, exclusive content, and discounts on all my new ebooks. Make yourself a favor and subscribe now!

I need roughly 2000 EUR every month to have a decent life with my family. Every time that you give me money, it means I can spend time contributing new features to Debian, or write more great documentation, instead of looking for customers. Show your appreciation, donate now!

If your company uses Debian, please join the Debian Long Term Support initiative. It’s important to give back to what you freely benefit from.

Hire me

I am an independent consultant and I offer my services via my company (Freexian SARL). Check out my offer of consulting and technical assistance. I can also create Debian packages, and help you to get them integrated into Debian.


I am using Flattr and Gratipay to let people support me with (recurring) microdonations. Check out my page on Flattr and my page on Gratipay.

Writing blog articles is time-consuming, thus I can’t share all important Debian news here but I will usually write a short blurb on Google Plus. Use the widget on the right to add me to one of your circles!

Facebook users will be glad to know that they can follow my blog through my official Facebook page.

If you’re more into micro-blogging, you can be informed of my blog articles on and Twitter. Follow me on or Twitter!

Please share the articles that you appreciated. I write them to help users and contributors of Debian/Ubuntu, so the more people reading them, the better it is. Below each article you will find buttons to share my articles on the most popular social networks. Use them!
