dcvchicago Posted October 13, 2006 Share Posted October 13, 2006 A contribution-supported development tool called nDoc has died for lack of contributions. Another free tool, nUnit, has all but died. Like Paint.net, they were great tools, and I am sorry to see them die. But no, I'm not going to badger anyone for contributions--this message is really meant for the Paint.net developers. Contribution-supported software is a losing proposition. Nobody contributes, or at least that's what I see on the forums for some great projects. So projects die. After all, if you make nothing from the product, why beat your head against a wall? Put a price on the product! Make it nominal if you like, but give it a price! Sell Paint.net for $19.95 with a thirty-day trial. Get something for your effort! I'd pay that in a heartbeat, but like most people, if it's free I'll take it, and ignore the contribution.
