OpenBSD "Frank Hecker from the Mozilla Foundation contacted Theo to inform him that the foundation decided to donate $10000 to the OpenSSH project. Frank mentioned this today in the Mozilla Foundation's status report. The OpenSSH project truly appreciates this gesture of solidarity from such a respectable open source project. Besides this sizeable donation we also received hundreds of smaller donations, mostly from individuals and small companies. Thanks everyone for stepping up to keep OpenBSD/OpenSSH ticking."

Small names, like individuals, can help also. Have you pre-ordered you OpenBSD 3.9 sets?

OpenBSD guys want a bit too much for their sets. 45 euro? I'd buy it for 20 and they still would profit. Now I'll just download it ;)

You get stickers! And artwork. And you support an open source project. If you just download it you don't get stickers, you can download some artwork but it's never going to be the same as the official cd inserts, and you don't support the project.

Of course you could buy a couple shirts and download and support the project... or just donate 20 euro and download it and still support the project...

or you can just not support the project but who would want to do that? ;)

They might make a profit on the cost of producing the discs themselves but not on all the dev time spent on the software itself.
