When Whitewater Foundry launched WLinux Enterprise we wanted an easy way for personal non-commercial users to get access to the app and for interested commercial users to try a demo. So we built and maintain a version of WLinux Enterprise on the Microsoft Store built with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux-compatible Scientific Linux.
The mission of Scientific Linux is:

We therefore committed to donating a share of the proceeds of the sales of the WLinux Enterprise demo on the Microsoft Store during the first 30 days to Fermilab-affiliated work.
In recognition of the work of the Fermilab team on Scientific Linux we have donated $650 USD from WLinux Enterprise demo sales to Fermilab-affiliated Fermilab Friends for Science Education (FFSE).
The mission of FFSE is:
From the FFSE About Us page:
We appreciate the work of the team at Fermilab on Scientific Linux and the scientific work that is enabled by the project. Learn more about Scientific Linux by reading the FAQ and how to get involved.
We also appreciate the educational opportunities offered by FFSE creating new generations of young scientists and engineers. Join FFSE and read more about FFSE programs. You can contribute directly to FFSE or get Fermi gear and profits go to FFSE.
