I support nitr09 and the projects by supporting Cloud 9 and buying the
products they offer. I know I can download it for free, but one of the first
things I bought was a copy from Cloud 9. If I had more money I would
definatly donate to a fund that equaly supported each contributer. If each
contributer were selling stuff, I would suport each and every one of them. I
know Boisey probably would like to keep Cloud 9 separate from the nitrOS-9
project, but you can't argue that him and Mark are a BIG resource to the
CoCo comunity. I honestly think that they are the Biggest effort driving the
hobby. I would GLADLY pay for nitrOS 9 (and I did from Mark). I have never
used the cc6809 compiler and if I do use it, I would gladly pay for the
rights to use it. Everybody has to make a living, and if you use a product
you should be willing to pay for it.
