Why i dont want to have donations in NetOffice

10. February 2017 5 comments

In 5 years now, a lot of people(okay maybe 10) ask me in the discussions how i can make a donation by giving money and i say no sir!

Here is why:

I like to have a personal playground. As a professional developer i must do things i’m not happy with, for the time for the money for the customers or whatever.
Few years ago a senior developer give me adivse “Dont be in love with your project – never”  One of the best suggestions ever in my life(i didnt realize this at this time in age of 19)
But i want to have everything perfect(because this is my character – some people say i need a doctor – be fair and dont ask my ex-girlfriends)
The real life for a pro developer isn’t very perfect,  you must bring imperfect solutions and see how a customer make money with bullshit you give him and you ask yourself how this world can be happen.

Summary:
So the professional developer life is my yin and the open source projects is my yang. I can do everything what and when i want – here is my love in a good place.
And if i need a break for few weeks i can do that.(I’m also sick of NetOffice sometimes but after 1-2 weeks i want have it back again with full power)
Now imagine the scenario people spend me money, someone need help and spend me money and i’m in holiday/break means not responsable. These is the scenario i fear because its not fair.
When people paying money to you this means you have a contract – legal or not. This is a grant/general promise i can not give.
