Note that IrfanView is *NOT* free for commercial use. It is free
only for personal, non-commercial use. Irfan Skiljan has invested
a lot of time and effort into developing an excellent application,
and he deserves to be compensated in the way that he requests.
Even if you are using it for non-commercial purposes, it seems
only fair to make a small donation to him using one of the PayPal
links on his "Support IrfanView" page. 10 Euros is pretty cheap,
even with the currently lousy USD exchange rate.
