    Kickstarters are very popular those days, if it works for video games, it may also work for key FOSS components like Xorg (which really needs investment).
    the problem isn't lack of funds, it's lack of developer time/availability.

      With enough funds you can hire people, which solves the lack of developer time/availability.

        You can hire people, but can you hire people with the required skills?

          Do the right job description, give people trials... I don't know.
          How does Mozilla hire people (for example) ?

            But I do it anyway.
            But when they see beer pictures, they know I am not working.

              the x.org foundation explicitly avoids hiring people, since it totally breaks the dynamic. the sole exception to this is EVoC, where it's not about paying for code but instead encouraging people into the community.
