Back in August 2011, CyanogenMod founder Steve Kondik was hired by Samsung due to the man's expertise of the Android platform and its customization powers.

Galaxy S III CyanogenMod 9 software spews forward

The team behind CyanogenMod have just opened the doors for Samsung Galaxy S III users to test our their newest software build in "nightly" mode this week. The software known as CyanogenMod 9 is by far the most popular 3rd party "unofficial" build of Android on the web, and now that it's hit the Samsung Galaxy S III in what's essentially the equivalent of a Beta mode, it's about to get a whole lot more popular once again. This software will bring you much closer to a vanilla version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich than Samsung's own TouchWiz UI allows, this being one of the main draws for all CyanogenMod-laden devices on the market today.

And today they're asking that you help them out with their otherwise free service by donating some cash to help support the purchase of "a couple of solid, stable Xeon-class servers with large amounts of RAM and fast disks." They're currently using PayPal, which is unfortunate for the apparent mobs of users boycotting the service at the moment (there's a lot of overlap with the modding community) but you've got other options as well.
