Every OS/system has a promise-to-pay system, but it is usually referred to as "buying the supplier's other products to keep them in business". The difference here is that there are rather more one-man-band projects, and with no other products to buy, the developer has to fund everything from their savings, in the hope that they may get a return. It is obviously slightly different when the work doesn't cost money in the first place (just dedication from the author) but it isn't unreasonable for someone to want to get some idea of whether they can fund one-month, three-months or six-months of work, before commiting!
