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.

I actually like Unity too. It has some flaws, like the faux-OS X "global menubar" and the close icon being on the left, but the alternative is Gnome 3, Gnome 2 and "3 guys hacking" (cinnamon). Gnome 2 and Cinnamon feel a bit dated for my taste. And KDE lost it's way long ago IMO.

Canonical could play their cards right (for example, be carefull with X.org upgrades) and take advantage of the radical shift Windows 8 is doing to grab some marketshare.
