Good-looking plane and nice work. But....well now, wait a second. Donationware.You pay for it, right?That's payware. Regardless of where the money goes to...bandwidth, wimmen and drink, or food for the kids. Calling it anything else is just kinda bending the words around, isn't it?

Freeware: You pay nothing to get.Payware: You must pay to get.Donationware: You must pay nothing to get, but you can pay something if you find the product to your liking.Words do have meanings. "Payware" does not equal "Donationware."
