I've always thought that if someday I have a lot of money I'd sponsor a few projects that I really like, maybe donate a few servers or something.
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 .
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.
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.
