Personally I use Debian and donate to FSF. Charitable donations are a more efficient way of funding services, since they bypass the taxman etc.
Updates might be the most visible service that people use, but the work FSF does in defending the GPL etc. is an important service that we should fund when we can. Becoming an associate member of FSF is one good way to fund them, and you get a few freebies (heh, not just software) member.fsf.org
