jv16 PowerTools as Open Source

jv16 PowerTools is one of the most popular Windows utility suites, with a history tracing back to the late 1990′s and with millions of downloads under its belt.

The latest user survey we carried out in May and June of 2013, over 87% of the software's users rated it good, giving it full 5 points! We also asked about going open source, and the majority of people answering the survey agreed that it would be a good idea and said they would be willing to participate financially to make it possible. So, here we are!

What is open source?

Open source software means that the software is free to use, for personal and commercial use. In addition, the source code – the blueprint of how the software is built – is also made public and for everyone to see. 

You do not have to be a developer or coder in order to use open source software or to benefit from it. As an end user, if jv16 PowerTools goes open software, nothing changes except that the program would become free for you to use! And it would become a whole lot more powerful with new amazing features, different editions and faster bug fixes! And the best parts of the program can be used in other software as well!

The future of jv16 PowerTools – open source software via crowdspeaking and crowdfunding?

We have been developing jv16 PowerTools for well over 10 years. Now we feel it could be the time to make history and take the program to the next level by releasing jv16 PowerTools as free, open source software.

Crowdspeaking is when each person amplifies the power of the message that they want to be heard. By connecting your social media accounts to our thunderclap.it campaign, you will be building up on the impact and social reach that is already established, helping jv16 PowerTools to become open source by letting as many people as possible know of the upcoming fund raising campaign.

Crowdfunding is when a company sets a goal for raising funds in a set period of time. Everyone who wants to contribute makes a pledge to pay any sum of money they want. It can be as little as $5. If enough people contribute by the due date, the software will be released as open source. However, for this to happen, we first need to let the world know about the initiative. For this reason, we are inviting you, the reader, to join the “thunder” and make it clap so hard that it will be heard on every continent!

As soon as there will be enough social reach, we will publish the crowdfunding campaign and raise funds to make this vision a reality!
