Don’t know much about the site it appears legal and they give away a fully activated software everyday. Just downloaded a photo editing program in case you are all interested.

The kicker is you have to download it and install it that day so it can be activated not a big deal really because you can always uninstall it but the price is right.
Family and Friends are always there. Relatives are only when they need something.

The apparent purpose of this site is to allow software developers to promote their products. You’re not going to get major name-brand software there, but stuff from small developers trying to make a name for themselves.

I would guess (speaking as a former software developer/programmer) that the quality is going to be variable – just make sure that your anti-virus is up to date just in case it isn’t purely innocent.

Just to be clear on what I’m saying….I’m NOT condemning the site or the software…I’m being paranoid by policy.

I had a virus that’s why I don’t go to links like this anymore.

a1JimVery good advice. I am in the computer software business (we have an enterprise-level, collaborative system), and well over 90% of the support calls we get on that product can be traced back to something that the end-user downloaded to a machine running our software.

I use that site daily and haven’t had any bad experiences. I am on their mailing list and receive an e-mail of the days offering, now and then I get something I can use.
