Make’s Open Source Gift Ideas

For those out there who don’t know what to get their friends or relatives for the upcoming holiday season, MAKE Magazine provides a list of popular open source projects that is filled with interesting gift ideas for the techies on your list.

The list includes everything from an open source Atmel AVR programmer, to an installer of portable open source applications for USB thumb drives, and even a home automation web interface that talks to most commercially available home automation products.

One idea that I had seen elsewhere on the internet is to burn Ubuntu or Knoppix LiveCDs for people as an added stocking stuffer. It’s relatively cheap to do that and would provide added exposure to LINUX without permanently getting rid of their current OS and data.
