Fuck Microsoft azure. Go 100% Linux to save shitloads.

Licensing fees or for normie losers.

We would love to port our code to .NET Core and run on Linux, but this is a big job, maybe 3-4 months of code freeze and port. Would only happen if we got funding.

Post to all the Linux subs. I'm sure you can find a bunch of fuckin' nerds who'd be willing to contribute.

You need to go Linux. Freeze the code, and fucking switch. You don't need funding to do it. There's plenty of asspies who will dedicate their time and help.

If funds are also very low, you might need to suspend Voat for a few weeks. You can cut costs by half by switching to Linux. It wouldn't take 3-4 months to port. Maybe 4-8 weeks under an adderall fueled code crunch.

Can you just rewrite the platform entirely and/or recruit to rewrite under an open stack? Going .net was your biggest mistake.

How much do you think you could save running on Linux ?

I'm not sure how feasible this suggestion is, but I think I recall Atko saying something in the past about potentially switching to Linux? Or maybe that was him saying it would require massive changes to everything? But didn't Putt complete that massive overhaul?

This might be worth considering if feasible.

Question for you, as you kind of have been a voat "angel".

Would you not want a receipt? There is a lot of unrest right now over the admin announcement, and I see a lot of people who are hesitant to give money, because what the fuck is happening with the money we give him.

I think it's time we got a receipt. I think you're a good person to be asking for one, I have no right to do so. I have not given nearly as much as you

I don't get why they didn't start the porting effort before things got expensive. There is really no rational reason to run microshit

I'm still pissed they implemented the Archived Thread feature--and the cutoff is even sooner than Reddit, 2 months instead of 5 months. I absolutely loathe that, it's worse than Reddit. I'd gladly donate if the admins will port to something better at load-handling than shitty Azure and then change commenting back.

Someone with cleverer creative skills than me: name and start a dedicated subverse for this
