On donating to open source

Some time ago, Gabriel Weinberg, the guy behind the excellent Duck Duck Go search engine, started a bit of a discussion about open source donations. He set up a website where companies can make a pledge to donate x% of their profits to worthy projects. I donated 15% of my company’s estimated profit this year. Half went towards an individual hacker who will remain nameless and genderless. The other half went to the OpenBSD project, because face it, where would you be without OpenSSH?
