Supporting the small vendor

Icon 1 Comments
I'm a big fan of Jeff Atwood's Coding Horror blog. I read a gem of a post by him here which basically stated that some small vendors make really really good software. And I do believe we have ample proof of this. Jeff suggests that we should support these kind of vendors, primarily by buying/donating to the software if you really use it a lot. Like for example giving a little money to an open source project which you use extensively.

I read the post completely and agreed with the point he was making there. And for my bit, I bought EditPlus - a really useful text editor on the Windows platform, and PowerArchiver - a very full featured and cheap (only 20$) compression utility. So if anyone has any extra dough to throw out, consider supporting the little guy who makes great software that you use all the time.

Paint.NET! Paint.NET! This image editing software is so awesome... I use it at work to do some image stuff for web applications and documentation.

I subscribe to Jeff's RSS feed, and he likes Paint.NET too.

Now let me go support another software developer.
