Canonical has made changes to the Ubuntu website and now offers a page that asks users to donate funds to contribute financially to the development of the distribution before downloading.
new contributions-inspired page as seen in The Humble Indie Bundle allows users to indicate their preferences on issues they consider most important to invest , with categories like “ Ubuntu versions for phones and tablets “. In fact, the page includes the ability to send suggestions to Canonical to develop certain areas that may (or may not) be starting to implement in their distribution.
donation page now only accepts payments through PayPal, but as Jono Bacon, who was commissioned to officially announce this change, other models are being investigated for donations. In addition, Bacon explained that all funds “ be used to invest in the Ubuntu project and to continue its development and growth “, adding further that these donations are used to cover possible additional business expenses of Canonical.
As indicated in The H Open, the Ubuntu website already offered the possibility of donations , but this was much less visible section above and now want to try to get more money this way.
