As NEMS Linux continues to grow, our support options are also evolving. At present, there are a few key points to keep in mind when seeking support:
- NEMS Linux is a community-driven project, so the best place to start is usually the community. We offer an official Discord server and a Community Forum to help you find what you need.
- Our lead developer, Robbie Ferguson (RobbieF#7136), is often available via our Discord server. That is the best place to reach him directly.
- Among other perks, users who choose to support NEMS Linux on Patreon gain access to Patron-exclusive rooms on our Discord server, including #priority-support, which are setup to ding lead developer, Robbie Ferguson, on his phone. So in cases where priority support is required, he’s usually quite good to reply promptly.
