In the ever-expanding universe of technology, your decision to join our journey at “Escape Big Tech” deserves more than a mere ’thank you’. However, we hope this page, at the very least, conveys our heartfelt gratitude for your invaluable support and participation.

Firstly, to all our readers, commenters, and contributors, we extend our deepest appreciation. Your engagement with our content, your thought-provoking comments, your unwavering support, and your generous donations have helped shape this space into the vibrant community it is today. Your curiosity and enthusiasm are the engine that powers this blog, and we are incredibly grateful to you all.

We would be remiss if we did not recognize and express our gratitude to the pulsating heart of our blog’s ethos - the FOSS community. This dynamic, global network of developers, enthusiasts, and advocates has proven, time and again, that collaboration and transparency can build solutions as robust and powerful as any proprietary system. We salute your tireless work and dedication to building a free and open digital world.

We bow our heads in deep respect and gratitude to the titan of the open-source world, Linus Torvalds, for his monumental contribution - Linux. This robust, secure, and versatile operating system is at the core of our discourse and a beacon of hope in our quest to escape Big Tech.

Our gratitude extends to every influential figure that has made FOSS what it is today. To Richard Stallman for his relentless advocacy for software freedom, to Eric S. Raymond, Bruce Perens, Matt Hicks, Mårten Mickos, and others for their pivotal roles in shaping and guiding the open-source movement, we express our sincere thanks.

Our journey at “Escape Big Tech” is not a solitary one. It’s a collective stride towards creating a tech environment that values freedom, privacy, and user control above all. Your support reaffirms our belief that this journey is not just necessary, but possible.

In the end, we are a part of a larger movement, a wave of change that is transforming technology one open-source line at a time. And for being a part of this movement with us, we say - Thank You!
