2.9 Beta (Feb 12, 2012)
I used to love ISOBuster, but now that they are installing crapware ("ISOBuster Toolbar") this package is being added to my ALP (Avoid Like the Plague) list.
I don't mind someone trying to make a buck on an excellent product, I just prefer people to do it honestly. At least make the option to install crapware deselcted by default.
3.5.0 (Feb 10, 2012)
I've been using LibreOffice (and its predecessor) for several years and find if a worthy contender for the Office Suite Prize for home and small business users.
I actually used LibreOffice exclusively at my workplace and at home over the last two years without a hitch. I finally decided to to fly without a net and removed MSOffice completely at work.
For the home user, there is no reason to pay hundreds of dollars for an Office Suite when an easier to use Suite is available.

I've used this little app since the DVD Decryptor days. It's is, by far, the best burning package available today and it just gets better with each update.
Easy to use for the absolute beginner and advanced enough to tackle almost any "burning" task.
I can't rate this highly enough.

Microsoft developers and support people tend to find the "right" tools to accomplish any job. It is not common for individuals to use "third-party" tools to achieve their goals even if they are from questionable sources.
I recall that the MS Office support teams even resorted to OpenOffice.org to recover corrupt MS Word and MS Excel files when internal tools failed.
