  1. Review - FreeCommander

    XE Release 635 (Oct 14, 2013)

    The last full version was in 2009. For some reason, they decided they needed a full on rewrite and stopped support of the 2009 version.

    4 years later, it still isn't done nor is it close to feature complete.

    What a complete and utter waste of time.

    It sort of works, that is why I give it a 2, but do yourself a favor - use 2009 version or buy Total Commander instead.

  2. Review - CCleaner for Windows

    4.06.4324 (Sep 30, 2013)

    Did they get rid of the SLIM version under Bulds? He only has 2 options now - Regular and Portable, and I don't want to get the adware junk inclusion stuff.

  3. Review - StartIsBack

    2.1.2 (Aug 30, 2013)

    I still don't use Windows 8.x - I prefer 7 Pro 64 bit. BUT, for those that do, like some buds of mine, this program looks really good. Very close to the original in Win 7. Gotta love that.

  4. Review - fre:ac Development

    Snapshot 20120930 (Oct 1, 2012)

    Switching AWAY from the Lame encoder?

    Project is going in reverse, not forward.

  5. Review - ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall (Sep 19, 2012)

    Comodo Free Firewall and either Avast or Avira are far better than this program combo.

  6. Comment - Nvidia improves performance, not power, ahead of E3 with new notebook GPU (Jun 1, 2011 - 7:04 PM)

    I thought the new 485M was the top performer in the graphic market for Nvidia on the Mobile side?

  7. Comment - Tip: Recover valuable disk space after installing Windows 7 SP1 (Feb 27, 2011 - 1:30 PM)

    Will CCleaner also take care of removing these files?

  8. Comment - Tip: Protect your PC with Paragon Backup & Recovery (Advanced) Free 2011 (Feb 14, 2011 - 11:30 PM)

    Cool info. Thanks!

    I've been using Paragon Partition Manager for the last few years and it has been very reliable and capable for me, which Partition Magic stopped being for some reason.

    I'll give this app a try. Free = Win!

  9. Comment - LibreOffice 3.3: Fast, fun and functional (Feb 8, 2011 - 7:40 PM)

    There is a list of how many features are in LibreOffice not in OpenOffice on their page, and there are a lot, including more aggressive support for open standards such as SVG, and they have already been chosen to replace OpenOffice in an increasing number of Linux distributions, including Ubuntu and OpenSuse (I believe). Many of the coders that used to work on OpenOffice have moved over to LibreOffice, so the people most familiar with the codebase are no longer contributing to OpenOffice. It also looks like development in LibreOffice is going to be more constant and less stagnant than OpenOffice.

  10. Comment - LibreOffice 3.3: Fast, fun and functional (Feb 7, 2011 - 6:05 PM)

    Not perfect but it is on a better path than OpenOffice and if they can improve the SVG support and include hardcore updates to the help / documentation, I would see no reason to go with OpenOffice at all.
