People seem more willing to donate money to projects, when they've had a chance to see and try the software for themselves (UPP and MW have both been to many shows and user club meetings to demonstrate their software).

Maybe developers could offer a preview service, where potential donaters can try the software over a VNC or RDP connection. In most cases an old RiscPC, connected to the internet via a router wich is set to keep the connection online and update a dyndns.org domain could probably do the job.
