I downloaded the DExpose app, simply because I like how the MAC handles open windows better then Vista. I like the program, I just wish the author would've put a little more work into the Font options. Thanks for the article!

 

----- Nevermind the font comment, there's loads of options to customize the view.

Geez, Murph, why don't you do something constructive around here and write some articles for us to read!  Like posting about some software that's useful or fun but still allows me to be miserly and bury my hard-earned money in mason jars in the back yard!

What's that? He does? Ah, crap, now I look like a jackass...

Sorry but 5 apps does not make a honkin' big list

TheMurph

The error was mine -- I had trouble thinking of words that would have fit the "ho ho ho" concept.  While five might not be "honkin'," could we agree on "heckuva?"

OK, in fairness, that's true.  But you come up with a cutesy Christmas-themed title for this list, then.

… Rather than bash the poster of this article, why not do constructive criticism and ask that content such as this be opted out more often. There are people, like I, who did find some of these programs, such as the WhoCrashed particularly useful, though.

 However, the article could have been much, much better, but nonetheless give some constructive feedback, rather than whale your arms wildly and scream about the post.

Thank you, I Jedi, I like to see that not everyone just starts having a brain aneurysm over evrything all the time.  That copywipe program is pretty slick and I gave sandboxie to one of my networking professors who manages a company that has some problems with their president virusing up his computer with porn sites.  I think these are cool.  Again, thanks, I Jedi, for maintaining civility.  (This doesn't go for all posters, just the ones who attack the slightest of details).

*shrug* doesn't bother me!  I would rather learn about five new, awesome free applications and games each week than zero.  Had I the budget of time to do ten, I would.  And in fact, maybe I'll run a huge roundup now that I have the week off.  Stay tuned!

Is not necessarily a big list, but it has programs I haven't heard of yet so I guess it evens out.

Please tell me that you are not recommending software that you haven't tested.

The joke was meant for RTS gamers.  I would do it myself, but I am all alone in my apartment for the holiday break, and I'm not sure I can convince my cat to come game with me.  :\

 I believe they mean to fire up the app with an RTS and see if it works!

Hey MAximumPC..when you recommend some free software do you test and check it has a virus..my Mcafee detected a " Generic PUP.z " on DExpoSE2 while downloading it....

avatar

TheMurph

False positive.  My Clamwin detects nothing, and Spybot reports no malware whatsoever.
