Was using balenaEtcher to make a bootable ‘Live‘ media today ‘n noticed some advertising going on…here’s a bigger view of it:
I use balenaEtcher a good bit, especially when a Linux OS I’m about to test suggests using a certain utility for creating a bootable USB. However, today was the first time that I noticed balenaEtcher doing a little advertising. They may have been doing it for some time now, but I just noticed today.
The advertising wasn’t distracting or ‘Pushy‘ offensive, so that approach works well when dealing wid Free ‘n Open Source software, IMHO.
Have noticed some open source Office Suites that run adds and/or advertising that I found way too distracting ‘n one bordered on ‘Trickery‘ to get you in ‘n then started advertising after a few days or so…see my search for an open source replacement for MS Office’s Word – Office Suites ‘n Word Processors.
Developers, Programmers, IT Specialists, Maintainers, etc. need to make a living ‘n I have always supported Open Source & Free Software projects trying to find ways to support themselves ‘n their projects.
Well done, balenaEtcher, well done indeed!
LINUX IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES – you never know what you’re gonna get!
