When you find free software that works great,

When you find free software that works great, do you: 1)throw the developer a few bucks 2)not donate and feel guilty 3)use it for free with no reservations whatsoever? I often feel guilty if I don't send a developer $10 for good software that I use often. If I use it enough, I always end up sending a little something because of my guilty consience. You?

No need to feel guilty, because we are not using it without their knowledge. Of course we(Home users) are helping them to develop their software for their sale for business application. Beyond this,we are always being watched by the so called free software developers with spy wares and other malicious things.

Once if it is free,then it is free for ever.I don't feel guilty using it.The developer will have some other source of income for that and so he has given it for free.There is no room for guilty to me.We have to keep it in mind that all the search engines are free and they earn as well without claiming a paise from us.Cheers!
