Shareware has always seemed weird to me

Any­one ac­tu­al­ly buy­ing Tree?

Be­cause I just have to won­der: I am pret­ty sure I could clone it in a week­end.

It’s very ba­sic, on­ly for Mac…

And yet the au­thor asks for $40 for the full ver­sion. Tell you what, read­er­s, pledge me $400 (amer­i­can dol­lars, that is ;-) and I prom­ise I can de­liv­er:

  • An app of sim­i­lar fea­tures
  • Open Source
  • Mul­ti­plat­form (Mac/Win/Lin­ux at least)

In one week. While do­ing my job and tak­ing care of my boy.

In fac­t, I don’t ex­pect it to take more than one full day of cod­ing, and 400 bucks is more than my usu­al rate any­way.

If I don’t re­lease it, don’t give me the mon­ey and keep the code any­way, which would be in a pub­lic re­po for progress mon­i­tor­ing.
