We’re working on new ways of getting donations. The idea is to make SD memory cards with Ubuntu Eee logos and Ubuntu Eee 8.04.1 preinstalled. You just stick it in your Eee and run Ubuntu Eee straight from there – without installing. You get more free space as you don’t need an OS on the hard drive / SDD and you’ve got yourself a nifty little Ubuntu Eee card.
How should we distribute this card?
You get a card if you donate X (50$ ?) or more
We sell the card for production price * 2. So that you donate the same amount that it costs. The price will then be about 100$ 50$.
Please comment with your ideas and thoughts. Remember to not think about how you can get the SD card as cheap as possible, but how Ubuntu Eee can get as much donations as possible ;)
Do you like this idea? Would you buy it? Do you have a better idea?
Update: Thanks for the comments, but I need even more feedback! I’m thinking about getting these.
Positive? Negative? Why? 18-20 MB/s read speed for 14$ – seems a little too good to be true?
I have to get them to Norway to install Ubuntu Eee on them before shipping. That means we have to pay Norwegian tax (anything with a value above 40$ being shipped into Norway). Is it possible to have Ubuntu Eee be installed somewhere else? Any other workaround?
