As we announce the release of our latest version today, we reflect on the journey that brought us here. PixelOS started about two and a half years ago as a fork of PixelExperience and we can't thank them enough for making us possible. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the PixelExperience team for providing the foundation that allowed us to grow and evolve. We wish Jhenrique all the best on his future endeavors.

We're immensely grateful for the ongoing support from our incredible community. While we haven't quite reached our donation goal, we see a fantastic opportunity for our users to make a more meaningful impact. Instead of contributing via PayPal, we invite you to consider sponsoring us on GitHub here. By doing so, you're not only helping us meet our financial targets but also directing your support towards PixelOS's growth without adding to PayPal's bottom line.
