Seriously good program IMO

I was checking my gmail and you know they have these ads on top. Well this one caught my eye and I followed the link:

I haven't downloaded it yet but it seems harmless (scroll down to view awards). What you guys reckon?

Can you trust it ?

Is it a backdoor for the NSA ???

Caveat emptor !! <<<<< mroe so when it's "free". my mum always told me NOTHING is ever "free" !!!!!

My bets are on this software containing spyware. Probably uses up a lot of resources somehow anyways. I bet there are some better open source alternatives around.

That's a damn dirty lie.

I got given Galaxy Promises on Valentine's Day

And this computer I did not pay for either

Plus dad used to get free phones from Ericsson, before the company kind of liquidated itself here.

Ha!

It's just up North, where you all throw your money around like a man with no arms.

Can't you just change permissions or encrypt a folder with Windows ?

In the shed
I dont know what people are whinging about windows for. especialy XP. ive not had issues with it. _EVER_ and i work in an IT with an XP environment.

People are sheep and will bag whatever the first person says without even proof. Can any of you give me actual REASONS why XP is crap? and what you use instead thats better?
