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.

If Linux distributions are going to have any future in the desktop, we need to support the efforts to do so.

The supermarket does not take care about open source when their developers go buy food.

You didn't already? I make (semi) regular donations to Linux Mint and glad to do so.

I've bought several Slackware, Mandrake, RedHat, SuSe, Debian distributions in the course of my professional life, plus donate occasionally to several projects.
