The text along side it is pretty bad though :sweat_smile: home-assistant has backing from Nabu Casa who actually make some money now from their gateway service, Blue and Yellow boards, the upcoming Zigbee & Matter stick

Arguably NixOS is the only one that doesn’t see significant backing from a company. The NixOS foundation just receives donations and sponsorships but doesn’t sell anything.

Well, “official” nix swag when?
I’m aware of the redbubble store but not having the account name nix or nixos is likely a deterrent.
It’s not instantly obvious proceeds make it to the NixOS Foundation.
