Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Donating to software projects - or, more accurately, open source projects. It's hardly new, it's hardly rare, and I'm sure most of us have donated at some point. That's probably why Canonical has opened Ubuntu up for donations - but with a twist.

"there are loads of distributions and software projects that do more with less. "

So yeah.

The only thing it seems to have brought the Linux world with would be...

- making people release software that compile only on ubuntu by default
- making people release software that only works on ubuntu (incl. proprietary software)
- making unity

All of which are terrible things. Fuck you, Ubuntu ;)

I'd donate to projects which provide BETTER stuff with zero financial backing. Like ArchLinux. I'm donating right now. Thank you Ubuntu.:
