  ok, how about a FREE version? I am not paying $45 for a piece of 
software I won't use everyday. It's not worth it. Plus, that is not true 
donationware, but actual payware. You are paying for the software first 
before getting it. By definition, donationware is fully operational 
software that has an OPTIONAL donation to the organization. By saying 
"yes you may download it, but you can not use it until we give you a 
code for paying $45" sounds a little more like shareware or extortion to 
me, but I am coming from the FOSS world.

I am all for donation to keep UNNA alive, but not like this.
