Can we set up a prize of some source? I don't know if there's a such thing as an OS development prize... And we sure as hell can't give Dex and the other super-developers code xD

What about a prize of random bits of old (or new) hardware so they can test their OS on them. People could just add something to the pool and then send it to an address chosen by the winner

I vote for no prize.

Likewise, but with a twist.

<Alboin donates 100 invisible tokens, redeemable nowhere, owning absolutely no value, and having no physical manifestation anywhere.>

Okay, now who doesn't want to WIN!? These tokens are *awesome*.

I'll donate to anyone who plays WoW on the Shu'Halo server as a Horde character 25 gold. 5 for second place and one free instance run (under lvl 45) for third.

The cost on shipping would likely out value the cost of the parts at your local dump (walmart.)

I enabled it because you could change your opinions, since there are 9 entries and one may be better than the another. And since you've already had the time to choose, only non-voters ATM are now able to vote.
