There are a number of online suppliers selling SymphonyOS disks for a couple of dollars each. You can find them using Google.
On the other hand, maybe a lot of people have got to see the request for (financial) assistance - and acted on it. Could be a good thing!
I have played with SymphonyOS and it certainly has potential as an easy-to-use distro. I found it painfully slow even when installed to hard-drive, and the configuration changes did not write until I burrowed down and modified some file permissions. Also, when you install it, the symphonyOS GUI is not the default. I think there is a lot of potential in this concept and I wish the developer all the best. Also, I was pleased to discover that the window manager that drives it is good old `fvwm' ! I was surprised at the complexity of the implementation, though. I would have thought building dynamic web pages was not that complicated. However, all kudos to the developer. Keep on pushing!
