This is a shell substitute for the Windows Explorer. It's out there since Windows 3.1. It's so loaded with functionality that you could write a book on these. So - I wonder, how people can judge it within an instant, just because they have no clue as to what they're doing.
Greatest explorer substitute ever. Uncomparable. Far out.
Actually, I used it in place - instead - of the windows explorer for quite some time.
0.1.28 (May 16, 2007)
Well - good program which does what it announces.
But - ehem - - °__° -- what is this program for, anyway????
In these days of "Total Commander" and so forth - what is the sense of writing such a program??????
Well, maybe it's just some kind of finger exercises of a programmer . . .
Okay - overall: it works well. No problem whatsoever.
126.96.36.19907 Beta (Mar 12, 2007)
good player. no fake. no nag screens. no hidden "get the better for money" attitude, at least I haven't found one (yet?). free player, indeed.
lacks a possibility to adjust the "gamma" overlay (brightness and contrast only) - which is possible in "vlc", also a free video player. sometimes this is a vital option to get a better video output.
has the ability to "sharpen", though, and different other video enhancements.
has also an audio equalizer onboard for those who use high quality audio cards, though the "vlc" equalizer to my ears is somewhat and somehow a bit better . . .
So - for the lack of "gamma" correction, only four stars.
A real good player with loads of preferences and adjustment possibilities which you will not find in some of the costly players - for free.
You gotta try it at least!

Very nice GUI. THANX!
BTW: as the program itself is packed with UPX - the "exe" file -, elder anti-virus programs will sound the alarm. That can be totally ignored.

This is typical MS stuff. It may be good, but I hate programs that do whatever their programers like and - especially this one - won't work suddenly no longer and treat users as little dumb idiots. I don't care that they give it away for free. There are other freeware or open source programs out there that do similar or better things than this one.
What are these programmers thinking who they are?!
Keep it for yourself and your kids - annoy them with your stuff.
So - because of their arrogant attitude - only a one. A pity that you have to give them a one, anyway ...

This is the usual empty talk.
This is all about money and power.
This shows what "democracy" is in reality: an illusion of the humanists, who, with blind eyes, lead the blind into the abyss, just to be able to rip them off in any way they are able to.
The best way to do this is to criminalize everybody. That way they can put away everybody who is inconvenient - and make money anyway.
All those talking about their RIGHTS always forget about their DUTIES and OBLIGATIONS.
Sick and tired of this BULL . . .

There are always two things to intellectual "property" - one is the underlying structured basis used by everyone who does intellectual work, the other one is my own, individually based realization of such a form which makes it "mine" and which is clearly discernable from every other individually realized form. - There are thousands of "menuets", "blues songs", "sinfonies", "sonnets", "novels" and so forth, but those of Bach, Beethoven, Ives, Shakespeare, Hemingway et cetera are clearly discernable from each other.
Could this be the case for "software" in the same way? YOU tell ME. I'm no programmer.
What is the basis for software? Is it the hardware alone? Or isn't it some basic structures used by everyone alike and THEN turned into something individual, discernable from every other code? I'm pretty sure the hardware is patented already, anyway.
So what are they talking about here? If the first basis is going to be "patented", then every TV station could sue everyone for using commonly established words that have been used in one of their talkshows. That would be bull. And in my eyes windows, mouse movement, even the desktop like display and so forth are some kind of basic structures which by now should be considered as part of the common treasure of culture - especially when considerating the development of computers, which is more like logarithmic and is speeding up all the time.
To me "patents" have always been something purely technical, like motors, vacuum cleaners steam engines and the like which didn't exist at all in this world before somebody invented them.
Besides, every author, every music that is older than 70 years - or something around - is opened to the public as part of the common cultural treasure.
And to be very clear: how many musicians and poets whose works are highly appreciated nowadays had to actually live an underdog style of life . . . and died in bitter poverty.
So there seems to be quite another facet to this matter - isn't it enought to be able to make a living on a modest, humble and unpretentious level? And to know that my thoughts and my work have found their place and use in the human society? What is this greed in us that makes us want to win the whole world and to have and have more and still have more? For what? Nobody ever drove to his funeral in a U-HAUL truck . . .
Think about it.

Man, unbelievable, the same stupid empty discussion every time MS launches its OS for decades now.
Will you ever shut up, take your money and spare people this vanity crap ? ? ! !
Yesterday we stood at the brink of an abyss - today we are one step farther . . .
