I would donate to the Puppy Linux project. IMO, it's a great project and it's so fast and portable, and it has none of the bloat that the main Linux distros have.

When I used it at first, I was like "Bleh, the GUI is horrible!" but now, I'm using it every day and saying "Goodbye KDE/Gnome, hello JWM".

DSL vs Puppy. Who is the winner? Puppy. Puppy booted quickly, as DSL hung on modprobe probing my laptop's USB half-a-dozen times.

Actually, when I have a spare few dollars (say $10 or so), I'll donate. I would love to see this project continue and make it a rising star of Linux Distros.

Are there any issues sending mail from the USA to Australia that I should be aware of?

No issues at all, I buy stuff from ebay in the USA and get it shipped to oz all the time:) maybe 200 items in the past 8 years or so.

Western Union?

Hope this helps.

It's not the size of the donation , it's the thought.
Puppy is the only freebie that I donate to.

Chris.

PostPosted: Wed 01 Jul 2009, 21:24    Post subject: Barry's effort has been so serious
Subject description: we must pay him using the same "money"
 

I understand the gived arguments, but i cannot forget that Barry should have the same rights that Bill Gates has.
Bill is not as Barry in anything at all, not as a worker, not as a software developer, not as a solution-giver to computer's users. Jesus, not as anything. Shocked
Bill has lots of money, is that the right Barry should have? to have money?
not exactly, because Bill has other much more important right: to decide about the future of the computers. He has the key to that future, and that key is not the software, it's the hardware.
Because for Bill, the software is the excuse to make agreements with hardware developers. He needs that to preserve his handling over the world's market. Evil or Very Mad
There is no future in developing more and more software without considering the hardware problem.
Let's start giving hardware solutions, FREE hardware, step by step, as we did in the past with software, and we'll soon see the doors of definitive victory. Wink

Here is something they are doing at Pclinuxos. Might be a good idea for Puppy. The easier it is to contribute, the better.

Cheers
Why didn't that post as a link?

You need to embed urls inside [url][/url] tags on this forum or they just show up as text.

Bligh you need to ensure there is no blank space at the end of the url
- otherwise you get

Code:
[url]http://pupweb.org/desktop/  [/url]


instead of:
http://pupweb.org/desktop/

because we all need a hand I have edited
your post to remove the space Smile

Thanks to all, that explains why I was having trouble. I don't know a lot about Puppy, so I can't contribute a lot to the forum, I thought the link might be useful.
Cheers

Hello Veronica,
I am really amazed that you are ready to make donation to the people like barry,OO crowd and Mozilla crowd because no one in this world thinks about another people.This is a self-fish world.I am thinking to join LETS (Local Economic Trading Scheme) and also freecycle so that i can put on items which is no longer useful to me.Thank you very much Veronica for this information.

Yes I know that it is the thought that counts and not the exact amounts.

But I have no experience on what is supposed to be decent to give.

Sure one could look at what other devs want and give same to Barry.

Was it a spammer? I got a notice that a post was to read but it is not here.

I still stand up for that I will sooner or later send money to Barry.

I only fail to know what would be proper to send. I mean the amount.

If I give too little that would be embarrassing. If I give too much that would be embarrassing too even of him find use for the money.

Hahah I have to persuade Bill Gates to send Barry some Millions of US Dollars.
