Why is it free?

It was a commercial product before. As of 2009, I’m the only developer left and I don’t have enough resources to support a commercial application. In addition to that, I think ICP is a cool product and deserves more popularity. So it is free now. Even for commercial purposes. If you enjoy using ICP please consider donating, so I can cover my hosting expenses. Thank you!
