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.

One of the goals of Ubuntu has been for years to make it be able to stand on it's own feet.

I think Shuttleworth donated money to a fund which raises which generates a revenu stream, but it isn't enough.
