A Win-Win Situation
I heard about your web site after searching out URLSniffer [URL Snooper], seemed like a great bit of software and I wanted to reward the developer by paying for it.

Is Jeff Atwood Wrong?? Recent Blog Debate About Donating to Open Source Projects

blog clipart
I absolutely love jeff atwood's Coding Horror blog, but found myself in rare disagreement with him this morning..

He posted some reflections on another blog entry by Scott Hanselman on the death of the open source project NDoc.


...
Open source software is at its best when you aren't obligated to do anything at all other than use it.
..
You definitely shouldn't have to pay for it.

...
-Jeff Atwood

i wrote about some of these issues in my article on donationware, "When Do Users Donate?": https://www.donation...icles/One/index.html
