People may go divergently (not for masses) or convergently (for masses). Since I do not always want to swim in the waters the same way as the masses do (telling you either to purchase a license or begging you to donate), I invented the REQUIRED DONATION LICENSE as the only person in the world. This is FREEDOM. Thus, this software is free for personal use but companies/institutions are required to donate. The donation is 200/150/100/50/25 US dollars (without support) for every piece of this software that is intended to run on one network segment. This is REQUIRED DONATION SOFTWARE only because you may easily setup your own MaheshaBSD Server with NetBSD (MaheshaNetBSD) or DragonFly BSD (MaheshaDragonFlyBSD). Thus, you are not really required to DONATE if you do not use MAHESHABSD SERVER but choose MaheshaNetBSD or MaheshaDragonFly BSD instead. I want you to donate the money to OpenBSD (see that my name is listed there) and FreeBSD projects (and also to me, NetBSD and DragonFly BSD). The REQUIRED DONATION is my own philosophy. If you feel 200 dollars is a lot of money, I may go down to the amount of 50 US dollars, but I will ask you also to donate some funds to the abovementioned projects. If you plan to use MaheshaBSD Server for personal purposes only, you are not bound by any restrictions as regards the number of networks you want to use this REQUIRED DONATION software on. However, you can donate, but you do not need to if you are not a corporation.
The DONATION can be made by check or bank transfer or by PayPal. Just e-mail me for more information.
There is no money-back guarantee, as you are allowed to test this software freely for the period of three weeks after which then you may decide on sending the REQUIRED DONATION (not really a purchase) amount.
The price 200 (or 150/100/50/25) US dollars is without support. The support may be agreed upon request.
The SOFTWARE presented as MaheshaBSD Server is and can be distributed under the following terms: Copyright (c) 2012, Juraj Sipos. All rights reserved.
MaheshaBSD Server and MaheshaBSD have two different licenses and the following license (REQUIRED DONATION LICENSE) pertains to MaheshaBSD Server edition only (to the assemblage that makes it the ready and swift SERVER edition).

The SOFTWARE, after being tested and no money has been donated, must be removed from all computers of all entities wishing to test it, as it is FREE solely for the purpose of PERSONAL USE, or the end user entities may try the free versions of MaheshaBSD and set up their own FTP/WWW server therein.
