What you can do to financially help your favorite distro

Since most Linux distros are developed and maintained by individuals, it totally makes sense to financially help the developers of your favorite distro. It takes a lot of time and work to create or customize a desktop Linux distribution, add all the applications and then more work to maintain it over time. While it’s very true that no payment is required by most distro developers, it’s also true that most of them would probably appreciate a little tip here or there from the users.
