Donationware, what is it?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I was wondering what donationware is. It's not freeware and it's not payware, so how do I download it?Thanks,Jeff

To my understanding, Donationware is when you are provided a fully functional copy of a piece of software, and are encouraged to donate some money to the author. It can sometimes be a sign that a author is considering going payware, depending on the donationware proceeds. I believe that Pete Dowson had FSUIPC as donationware before going payware.

It's payware except the fee goes towards some charity instead of the author (at least on paper, I don't think there's any way to make sure of that but I don't think too many people would abuse the title).
