Continuing Support for BlueOnyx: Your Help Makes a Difference!

Posted by: mstauber Category: General

I am reaching out to you today with a humble request for your support to ensure the continued development and sustainability of the BlueOnyx project.

Dear BlueOnyx Community,

I hope this message finds you well. As you may know, BlueOnyx has always been an open-source endeavor, driven by the passion and dedication of individuals like yourself. Together, we have built a powerful and user-friendly platform that empowers countless users worldwide.

Over the past year, I have dedicated my energy to the development and release of BlueOnyx 5211R, a remarkable milestone in our journey. I take great pride in this accomplishment, knowing it has been made possible by the collective efforts of our passionate community. It is also great to see that BlueOnyx 5211R found such widespread acceptance within our community and it has also attracted a small influx in new adopters.

However, I want to be transparent about the challenges we are currently facing. The sales figures for our commercial add-ons at SOLARSPEED.NET, our associated company, have not met our expectations. This has put both the BlueOnyx project and our company in a position of uncertainty when it comes to financial sustainability. In part our generous licensing that allows to use our software on all supported BlueOnyx versions meant that even the widespread adoption of BlueOnyx 5211R didn’t significantly result in new software purchases, as licenses are transferable from an old server to a new one. Likewise: Easy-Migrate works so well, that our offered migration services from older to newer BlueOnyx versions are now hardly ever needed or requested, which culled another source of regular income.

While we have made efforts to secure alternative sources of income, it is clear that we cannot continue without the support of our valued community members like you. Your contributions have always played a pivotal role in enabling us to provide a free and robust platform like BlueOnyx.

Today, I am reaching out to kindly request your support once again. If you have found value in BlueOnyx and believe in the project's mission, I kindly request that you consider making a donation to support our ongoing efforts or consider making a purchase in the BlueOnyx shop. Maybe you have a license that needs renewal or would like to try some of our software that you so far haven’t purchased? Your contributions, whether through a one-time donation, a small purchase or a monthly commitment, can truly make a difference. To make a donation securely and conveniently or consider a software purchase, please visit our donation page or our online shop:

I want to express my sincere gratitude to those who have already donated. Your generosity has been instrumental in our progress so far. Now, we humbly ask you to consider continuing your support and inspiring others to join our cause. Together, we can create a strong and sustainable foundation for BlueOnyx, fostering innovation and benefiting the entire community.

If you are unable to contribute financially at this time, we completely understand. There are still meaningful ways to help, such as spreading awareness about BlueOnyx, sharing your success stories, or contributing your skills to further enhance the project. Your active participation and engagement are invaluable to our community's growth and success.

Thank you for being a part of the BlueOnyx community and for considering our request. Together, we can overcome these challenges and continue building a platform that empowers individuals and businesses around the globe.

With sincere appreciation,

Michael Stauber
BlueOnyx Project Lead
