The topic name says it all. I have been wondering why so far, there is only 1 commercial software review only. Shouldn't there be more of it? I know many of us (including me and you, Ashraf) love freeware or even freebies, but let us be fair and do 'justice' to commercialware too; some commercialware really deserves 'appreciation'. I believe there are some of us who can afford commercialware and prefer them over freeware (for some reason or another); and I am sure these people would like it if you review more commercialware so that they can make better choices/decisions before paying for the commercialware. Furthermore, it helps in the sense that we, 'software try-ers' get exposed to more software even if it is not free.

Don't you think so, Ashraf?

On the other hand, I know that you are busy and perhaps, this is the reason why you sort of 'stopped' at only 1 commercialware review. I can't blame you on that, in fact, I really do understand your situation…It's just that I am hoping (on behalf of others who think alike)  that you would do more commercialware reviews..

That's all I have got to say- and yes.."LONG LIVE DOTTECH".

Um that category is just there incase some developer wants to to review their commercial software. And the constant GOTD reviews do keep me busy. Maybe more the summer after I come back from vacation.

Ashraf,

Although I'd like to see dotTech expand someday into doing commercial software reviews and comparisons, I would not want it to be to the detriment of the free software reviews.

It also seems like you are a person who actually has a life outside of being on the Internet – at least I hope so!Laugh I understand your time is limited and you do an incredible job with the time you do spend on your site.

My suggestion to other members who like and respect Ashraf's reviews and want to see dotTech possibly grow and expand would be : GIVE A SMALL (or large, if you can afford it) DONATION TO THE SITE. There is a link at the top of each dotTech page called Support Us – Donate. Use it!! Even $5 or $10 every once in awhile would help. Think about the value you are getting out of the site.
