    well the reason i made this thread is to help me decide what project to donate 10 bucks towards . I am by no means a rich man (as i am a student) but I do believe that people who dedicate their time with no profit in mind deserve more then we give them. I lack the ability to program very well and am piss poor with photoshop/gimp so I can best contribute to the open source community by way of donating every once in a while.

    Perhaps I could also contribute by creating levels for these FOSS games .

      ..

      Yeah, because apart from FSF-approved licenses there's only proprietary blobs out there. Some openmindedness there..

        Coreboot probably, for flashrom and coreboot itself. Free us from buggy BIOS implementations.
        Maybe AMD/ATI for their free drivers.
        rockbox if they port to an iRiver E100

          $10 is nothing, it will hardly help, if anything at all. If I was rich I would hire full time developers to work on projects like X.org plus donate $1M. I think my $10 will go to... xmms?

            The humor was somewhat esoteric. Don't worry, IT AMUSED ME AND THAT'S ALL THAT COUNTS.

            EDIT: And to answer the question, I would donate it the FSF.

              Donate it to a project YOU want to continue or use a lot not what other people want. Think for yourself.

                its not they money that matters, its the thought that counts. If you have a million dollars please by all means go ahead and commercialize open source. But when you are that quiet developer doing a small project that noone donates to and one day you receive that 10 bucks, you feel pretty damn good.

                look at vector linux donations list

                If you donated $10 you would be in the hall of fame for 2008. Its a distribution for heavens sakes.

                but dont worry, its only #17 on distrowatch. Its only above useless distros like gentoo, KNOPPIX, Xubuntu, Redhat, and even solaris (which isnt really a linux distro).

                    Either ReactOS or coreboot. Both are generally underappreciated compared to their potential benefits, and they don't have gobs of corporate sponsorship like a lot of high-profile projects.

                      ffmpeg, most likely. Maybe Linuxmint, although I don't even use it.

                          Kaffeine, wine.. Those names come to mind. Note that not all projects have options for donations. DBAN, linuxtv, mplayer and last but not least ffmpeg also come to mind but do not seem to have options for donations.

                          Oh well, just donated $20 to Kaffeine and $20 to wine. I know, that's $40 together and not $10.

                          I guess God just likes me better than you.

                              I don't believe either, and I'm still getting four times more money from God than you. If I'm wrong and there is a God, I'll probably get VIP tickets for Heaven when I die. You can bring me popcorn.

                                #1 Haiku OS ... uses a BSD/MIT alike license which is listed as GPL compatible on the FSF site
                                #2 Mesa3d cool stuff going on there aswell as being platform independant which is a plus in my book
