Ashampoo seems to always be on offer, so why do I bother to tell about their latest offer? Because their rebate-offers are on old versions, and new versions are marketet at "normal" prices, but once you have purchased one of their programs at "normal" (nominel) price it is actual harder to pay the normal price than to get an rebate. So this Christmas offer (60% rebate on all) gives you a chance to purchase an okay program at an okay price and at the same time earn the "right" to be offered rebate on all their other programs in the future (emails from "Rainer Lesani"). As an example their new Office 2008 is $60, but I paid $24 - and until Christmas you too can have it at that price because of this campaign.

Be warned, though; they also have some programs hardly worth the rebated price... so download and test! All their programs have free trials.

Rebate coupon: christmas07 - to be used no later than December 24'th...

Agggghhhh Curt you're saving me money... just when I should be spending it on christmas presents for in-laws undecided

no, seriously, thanks for that tip Curt - I got the "Office" upgrade for €16 *

your email quote above gives the impression it only works on the 24th, but works now for any one interested

* even at €60 I reckon that office suite (from Softmaker) is a bargain

When purchasing at Ashampoo's site   europeens must remember first to change currency from euro to US-dollar   in order to save the difference  because the price is both $60 and €60   but €60 is almost $80.

Office 2008 truly is a bargain.

The sales pitches just kept coming.  Ashampoo and Xara are the worst about that, in my experience.

I have and love Ashampoo Burning Studio, but I just did a trial of PhotoCommander 5 and hated it. It says it can help organize photos but I didn't see any organization tools in there. It was more like a $50 version of the free Xnview but with less features.

You are right. PhotoCommander is some kind of a descent media player (!), but an organizer it never was, not for real. There are a lot of Ashampoo  programs that I would not recommend, but some are really fine   at least considering the cost.

Photo Commander... Ashampoo enlisted the developer of Brennig's to transform this freebie into what is now. Brennig's was a rewrite of the older SlowView, which was the third freeware viewer competing with IrfanView and XnView back in the day. Some more information here

No offense but what do you see in this program that freeware doesn't do better? If you want to spend money on a multimedia solution, then get J.Rivers Media Center for $10 less.  Now that is a top notch, powerful and comprehensive program.

First I must point out that I have never paid anything close to the listed prices for any of my Ashampoo programs. Secondly, I really don't think of PhotoCommander as a media player. I merely meant it is better as a media player than as an organizer. Thirdly, I don't need anyone or anything to "organize" my PC. What are they implying? I know where my stuff is placed. Fourthly and last, I am certain J. Rivers is among the best media players, but I don't want it; I use the new Winamp. But thanks for the hint.
