Quoting Cal Leeming <cal () foxwhisper co uk>:

What this really comes down to... Is the product *worth* donating to? If it
is, then donate. If it isn't, then don't. I can't personally comment either
way as I haven't tried it.

I agree with you, but in order to test it you *must* donate. First  
time I see that.

Unless you email the authors, or are a FD's subcriber and have used  
Steven's mirror. (pre 2.5 was tagged free, now it's tagged "There is  
no fixed price to get a copy").

I just mean, make a real licensing behind the tool if you want to sell  
it, or use a open licensing, but don't play with word in between.

Playing the donation way can be complex, if a user want a receipt for  
their donation, can they produce it ? (I don't know USA law, but where  
I live only a official non-profit organisation can receive a  
'donation'. Else it's simply considered a money gift). Their site  
advertise donation as 10, 50 and 100$, again, where I live you have  
the obligation to produce receipt for donation over 10$.

But my point is simply they just don't look professionnal, and I judge  
them that way because they try to sell the product, not like a GPL  
source code or a freeware.
