VIM text editor

Vim (Vi Improved) is an immensely popular text editor that could very well be installed in your Linux distro. It is one of the more popular Vi replacements, possibly because it is as scriptable as Emacs.

Vim's primary author Bram Moolenaar releases Vim as charityware: people who so inclined can "pay" for Vim (and encourage its further development) by making a donation to Moolenaar's favourite charity. See http://www.vim.org/sponsor/index.php for more information. Payment can be made in a number of ways, including PayPal.

Puppy Linux - Floss Fund Nomination

Puppy Linux is a small and light distribution with all the functionality of a large one. This is not just another derived distribution. It was built from the scratch taking components from many different sources and frequently implementing them in a novel way.

The main goals of PuppyLinux are not to be the fastest or smallest or prettiest, but to be highly functional in newer and older hardware.

W3C Validator Donation Program

Hello to the Shadowy Cabal: I'd like to nominate the W3C's Validator
Donation Program as a potential recipient of FLOSS Fund funds. W3C is certainly an agency that endorses Libre-ness and standards. The Validator can be (should be!) used by anyone who builds Web pages, and is completely free (both as beer and speech): http://validator.w3.org/source/

The Apache Foundation supports many of the most widely used FLOSS projects. The Apache HTTP server and the Java application server Tomcat are two of the most well known examples, but the Apache Foundation supports some other really great projects as well, such as POI (Java classes for creating/modifying MS Office documents), Xerces (XML parser), and the ANT build tool.
