Why should you donate? I don't know how many of you use Tomato for fun, business or just personal use but have you ever considered donating to the developers? I use Tomato at home but I've also set it up on almost all my customers' routers. I ask a lot, too much sometimes. All the developers have another job, a normal life and they develop just for fun. Not donating when using Tomato this much like I do is unacceptable. Why donating for a free app/software/service? Donating is NOT about money. I don't know if they need money or if they don't. The world unfortunately spins around money and contributing, even a little is the minimum form of appreciation we can give to the developers. Seriously, even $1 is appreciated. I will check my budget and try to organize Tomato donations as an automatic step, same as if I am paying for a remote software or for some online radio. Who should you donate to?
