Donations- Who am I forgetting?


Note: The point of this post is NOT to brag or anything like that. I am sincerely asking, and that is all.

Lately I've been making small one-time $5 donations to a number of different projects/programs that I find useful, and now I'm focusing on Unix-y/Linux-y/FOSS-y type projects. The individual donations are small enough to let me support a lot of different projects without going broke, but I think it's possible that I may be forgetting some important projects. I'm posting this to see if anybody here can think of some, which I may or may not end up donating to. Note that they do not necessarily have to be software, but can also be related websites, etc.

Such projects I've already donated to (as of this post): SourceForge, OpenSSH, Ubuntu

Such projects I already plan on donating to (as of this post, see link for a more up-to-date list): FreeBSD (OS X is Darwin-based and Darwin is FreeBSD-based), Debian (Ubuntu is Debian-based), Apache, Wikipedia, GNU (Free Software Foundation), Mozilla (although Camino is not actually supported by Mozilla, it uses Gecko as its rendering engine), and perhaps LinuxQuestions (I don't come here much, but it does seem to be a very good resource).

Background about myself:
I'm a 20 year old college student with two Macs running OS X (with these apps) and one headless PC running Ubuntu Server. I'm a rather techy person who likes to understand things from their core up and I am not afraid of the command line. The Macs are used as desktop computers while the PC is used as the server. The FOSS-type things I usually use the Macs for are Mac-specific open-source apps and basic Terminal usage. The PC is remotely controlled via SSH and used for a variety of server tasks: Apache/PHP/MySQL, Samba (network file storage), CUPS/Gutenprint (USB printer sharing).

With all that in mind, can you think of any major (probably popular) Linux-y/Unix-y/FOSS-y type thingamabob I'm forgetting which accepts donations via PayPal? Thanks.

The EFF. If you have an Nvidia card, consider Nouveau. Sourceforge is another worthy site.

I'll look into into the EFF tommorow when I have more time. I've already donated to SourceForge, as I said in the first post. LQ just depends on how much I end up using it, which isn't often at the moment.

Remember, the Linux box is just a headless server running the command-line only Ubuntu Server (as opposed to Ubuntu desktop). Thus, graphics don't matter so I've stuck with the Intel integrated graphics it came with.

Thanks for the suggestions so far. Keep them coming.
