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.

Ubuntu had its day

Years ago Ubuntu was an important distribution. It was an easy way to get Debian installed and working with printer and video drivers. Ubuntu made those things easy and built a large following. Today, almost any distro is easy to install and get drivers working. Nvidia and AMD provide better installation programs. There isn't much to set Ubuntu apart anymore, so they started pushing their own DE to be unique, which is why their popularity is fading. Even Slackware with slackpkg and sbopkg, is easy to install and add software these days.
