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 don't have a problem with the concept of Unity, even if it's just to stop someone like my mum launching 15 copies of Firefox but I think most people who find Unity isn't for them would argue for choice instead.

Ubuntu 12.04 is available in just about every possible dressing except Gnome 2, the popularity of Linux Mint could be largely attributed to this demand not being met officially.

Just a shame they don't seem to care very much about resolving stuff like this:
