Mozilla & Gecko clones The Mozilla Foundation has said it is committed to rewarding the community that helps develop its software. Mozilla's suite, which includes the Firefox Web browser, is partly developed by unpaid programmers, often working in their spare time. Mozilla on Wednesday said it could not afford to pay all of its voluntary contributors, but instead may contribute by providing hardware to some developers.

I don't think it's intented to reward, but to help developers work. I mean a better hardware, mean that you can compile faster. Or they might want to provide test machine and so on. That's why I think they choose to give hardware rather than money.
