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.

When you buy a commercial operating system like Windows for $100/year, something like $1 goes to the packaging an 99$ goes to development.


I believe more than $50 goes to advertisement. A lot less goes to actual development.
