While going through the forum, looking for interesting things to blog about, I noticed a thread by Ali;
If you had to pay for DC++, how much would you be willing to pay? A slightly
different angle: How much do you think it is *worth*?
The thread was started 2003-06-23, and I probably wouldn’t have paid for it back then. But now… If I were forced, I probably would.
A question that arose from the thread was; Who should get the money? A lot of people have been a part of the DC++ project; patching, supporting and general assistance. Is it “fair” that Sieka recieves money for things that a lot of other people have helped put together? Is it “fair” because he did the initial framework and everyone else “just got on the wagon”? I’m not sure if I would feel comfortable if I were to recieve money all of a sudden. Don’t get me wrong, I like money, but getting money for something that I enjoy doing… Wouldn’t that make me a whore? I know Pederzani has said he wouldn’t accept money “to do features” and I don’t think I would either.
What do you think? Is DC++ worth any money by today’s standards? If so - Who do you think should get them?
