    Flashrom, because they wrote a patch for my old motherboard so that I could flash my bios. 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.

    NOTE: Buying Nvidia stock to fuel development of their blob does not count as a donation as far as this thread is concerned.

    That didn't even come to mind. PD projects are the only ones I donate too.

    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.
