Firebug

Firebug is a Firefox and Chrome add-on for web developer that allows developers to inspect, edit and debug CSS, HTML and Javacript on any live web page. It is extremely handy for seeing the computed styles for an element and determining in which stylesheet line a particular style attribute is being set. Changes can be made in real-time viewing the results on the page before making changes to server files.

XBMC - A FLOSS Media Centre

XBMC is a great media centre application. It has a large, active user base and is actively developed. It is a good alternative to MythTV for those who want to use a media library rather than recording TV shows. It can also work as a client to a MythTV backend.

They accept donations via Paypal.

davmail, a network gateway to MS Exchange servers

This neat little Java program allowed me using Thunderbird with the corporate Exchange server. I could get messages with IMAP, send them with SMTP and auto-complete email addresses with LDAP. All these protocols are simulated by davmail on local ports.

OpenWRT

It's somewhat startling to realize OpenWRT wasn't nominated long ago ...

From http://openwrt.org/:

- OpenWrt is described as a Linux distribution for embedded devices.

Contributions - cash or equipment, but apparently to SPI, with instructions to forward to OpenWRT, instead of OpenWRT directly:

- https://dev.openwrt.org/wiki/SupportDonate - includes credit card payment means. No obvious PayPal mechanism sticks out.

gPodder

gPodder is a program for organizing, subscribing to downloading, and tracking your podcast subscriptions. It is intended for use on a desktop or on a mobile device, like the N810/N900 from Nokia.

It can play video or audio content, and like a good Unix program it calls an external player to player your media.

They accept donations here http://gpodder.org/donate.html, either directly through PayPal or by some gift lists that the authors maintain.

VLC multimedia player

VLC is a really great, cross-platform media player. It can handle just about any media format you can imagine out of the box. It can also stream media in many exciting ways, and can act as a video on demand server. It's so versatile, it can probably even bake bread.

They accept donations by Paypal.
