This is an interesting question, Nudone, and it would be great if DCC came up with a new word or term. Off the top of my head, I played with other words, too, such as:
-- One who dives deep to find good freeware and surfaces with a gem
-- Not bad
-- but what about the girls?
-- has a bad political connotation, but I don't know what it means
-- similar, but without the bad connotation above
-- not bad, but trite
-- I like it, but it has an inaccurate double entendre
-- well now, aren't we all?
Well, it was worth a try. I'd like to find the word, because it is my experience that freeware often fills a hole that shareware/commercialware lacks. And yes, I don't appreciate people who reactively rate freeware higher just because
it is free. If the freeware app is good enough for your purposes, that's fine. But that doesn't make it the best imo. Photoshop may be the best in its class, but I still can't even come close to affording it. But Image Factory
). (Otherwise, my site would be named "The Good Enough List.")
