Elisa has been submitted to the Windows Store

Elisa is a music player developed by the KDE community that strives to be simple and nice to use. We also recognize that we need a flexible product to account for the different workflows and use-cases of our users.

We focus on a very good integration with the Plasma desktop of the KDE community without compromising the support for other platforms (other Linux desktop environments, Windows and Android).

We are creating a reliable product that is a joy to use and respects our users privacy. As such, we will prefer to support online services where users are in control of their data.

I am very happy to announce that Elisa has been submitted to the Windows Store.

I strongly believe that we should push our applications on the popular computing platforms for two reasons: increase software freedom by having good free open source application easily usable and to possibly get more contributors and/or testers.

I would like to thanks all people that have made it possible to reach this state: Hannah von Reth, Kevin Funk, Christoph Cullman, Ben Cooksley and all people involved in Craft and the binary-factory and the Elisa contributors (Alexander Stippich and Nate Graham in particular but also new contributors Jerome Guidon, Edward Kigwana, Puneeth Chanda and others. The amount of support we get from being a part of the KDE Community is amazing and I would like to encourage people to donate to KDE.

On a side note, I have setup some accounts on Patreon, Liberapay and Paypal. Thanks a lot for the first donator that has motivated me to do that and donated some money. You can support my work via those services.
