FreeBSD It's not exciting to talk about money, but it does often take cash to keep funding the developers that improve code. Congrats to the FreeBSD foundation then, for beating their fundraising goal of $500K by almost 40%. The $690K they raised will go to funding coders, developer conferences, and some limited travel. That bodes well for continued strong support for FreeBSD in general, soon to release version 9.1 (currently at RC3).

To the contrary, Haiku seems quite far from their [modest] fundraising goal.

They re-use and adapt BSD drivers, so there is some overlap...

Last year they had a smaller goal, and when they achieved it they suddenly upped their goal by 50% Also, they haven't updated their donations since November. Who knows how much they got within the last month?
