    Well if it is leaked, then this might well be the last version we are making... I am sorry to say but nobody or just a few appreciated NiBiTor when it was free for years, yeah many users but nobody did even come to visit and give their feedback. And now that you have to spend just a few dollars to get the exclusive version that is too much? You can by a GTX 470 / 480 but can't spend a few extra minor dollars towards making as feel appreciated and to continue the development? That beats me... but who am I, right? ;-)

    its not thats its been freeware for years why charge it now, most people dont feel safe flashing the cards with modified bios after paying all that money for a 4xx card, most people just use freeware windows software these days so they don't lose there warrantys.

    To be fair, you should've known the criticism was coming. Deserved or not. Turning a free program into a paid program never goes over well, at least at first.

    Could you imagine the backlash if w1z started charging for gpu-z, or if he charged for ATI Tool back in the day? The reaction would be very similar.

    Well somehow but that should have happened a year ago, now it pops up cause it is annoying tweakers from playing with the Fermi BIOS. Oh well, criticism isn't an issue but that simple suggestion, I wait till it is leaked... And just a simple mind tweaker, if every downloader would have donated voluntary $1 for NiBiTor (not for every single version) or actually shown appreciation before when there was no exclusive period than we would just had let it be as before. But the complains are always coming afterwards. Each will have their own thoughts about it, so I guess becoming one of the persons you will hate for now is something I will have to live with...

    so it will get leaked, you will pirate it, nobody pays for it, developer gets fed up and stops development altogether.

    why not send the guy some money as a token of appreciation? you spend thousands of dollars on hardware and can't give 10 bucks to a software developer?

    Those that know me know that I totally endorse paying a few bucks for good software. Especially donations for freeware. Developers spend MASSIVE amounts of time and effort to get these programs for all of us to use, and lots do it out of the kindness of their hearts without any compensation. Any pirating of games/progs, has a terrible effects on the industry. Keep the developers fed by donating/purchasing software when you can.

    Thanks. I will give this a try no doubt. I appreciate your efforts.


    As far as the "leaked" comment...Its a sad situation but devs really need to pull their head out of their dirty place if they dont think this is happening. The guy simply said its going to be cracked. Thats no more of a fact than the sun is going to set tonight. I didnt see the guy state, "I'll wait for it to be leaked" (though I understand how that statement could lead to that thought)...soooooooo....

    Anyway, thanks again! :)

    My only problem with the OP is that it says donation when it should say fee. Paying for access to a product and donating money to the developer are two very different things. I wish you luck, and I hope that your tool isn't leaked so you can continue supporting it. I'd look into it if I had a Fermi card.

    $10 bucks. That would be nice.

    Quality free software will die because of piracy and a total lack of support. I worked it out once and for every 30 users of RealTemp I receive approximately 1 cent. That's not an average of 1 cent from each user. That's combined.

    For every 30 users of RealTemp that use the program each and every day, they get together and ask each other, "What do you think we should give the guy so he can afford to eat? How about a penny? Does anyone here have a penny? I got one. Good enough, that's plenty. That should keep the developer going for a while."

    It really is that insane. Developers throw a huge amount of time into their projects and we're not looking to get rich but being able to afford a new piece of hardware once in a while would be nice so I could do some more development for the user community. Besides, I need to eat too. Total donations so far barely cover the cost of the temperature gun I bought for my projects let alone the CPUs, etc. It's been a complete loss but I'd do it again because I enjoy helping others.

    I've been forced to make the decision to wind things down and to walk away from the user community. Nibitor is a great program so throw the developer some spare change, anything or he will be gone too.

    They really do need something like STEAM for small apps like this... Like a freeware/shareware app manager/sales system.

    If they can add something like this. Because donating is something that is never gonna happen by itself, and piracy will be rampant if devs limit distribution by themselves - but if the application is available through something like steam... for $2, sh*t, I would buy it. I have it anyways - why not. Totally could be done... GPU-z for a $2... every new version would be .50 cents - same with Nibitor - maybe $2 with $.50 upgrades...

    no?

    Agreed. This would be a great idea IMO. Small distribution model for benching/overclocking utilities. Then maybe some of these dev's can actually eat. Hell, it could turn into full time jobs for some of them.

    Totally... i cant live without some of these little proggies... all they would have to do is write an email to the guys from STEAM - they would get picked up no problem, im sure the steam devs want to get their fingers into legit software instead of just games.

    This is a good idea. I honestly think there should be no freeware. It just makes people feel entitled, like every piece of software should be free. Can you just imagine how good some of this freeware would be, if the developers were even minimally compensated for their products?

    That's a helpful post.:rolleyes: I welcome you to explain your point of view. Why should developers not be compensated for their work? Can you give me a good reason why not?
