If you've been wanting to get involved in supporting Linux and other open-source projects with or without a programming background, or you have creative ideas how to get involved, see this thread.

That Phoronix Forums thread has been active for more than a week and brings up a wide variety of possibilities from how to fund developers to coming up with an open-source development payment platform.

There's also, of course, off-topic remarks like Linux needing a stable API to GUI applications, but there's close to 50 comments already so it's worth taking a look at if you have some extra time this weekend.

As it's nearing the end of the month, it's also a good time for a couple of reminders (and for those interested in supporting our Linux hardware goals): You can follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Identi.ca if you don't already. And be sure to use our affiliate shopping links for Amazon and NewEgg when doing your online shopping. You can also subscribe to Phoronix Premium for single page article viewing and an ad-free experience while browsing Phoronix.com. There's also always the PayPal tip jar for donations or promise of great beers in Bavaria such as Augustiner, Franziskaner, Tegernsee Hell, etc.
