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.

Deserving

"If Ubuntu deserves donations" is rather strange language to me: AFAIK one donates to something one wants to go on acting as it is, so it is me who decides its worthiness. Only a criminal organization would be 'unworthy' or 'undeserving' of receiving donations (from whomever). Of course they have other revenue lines and so what?

Not that I am eager to donate to them but... deserving?? Do you think the money goes to Shuttleworth?
