Download Crew: Another site for freebies...
« on: January 15, 2012, 11:55:53 AM »
There's http://giveaway.downloadcrew.com/
Usually they have items that are for sale at a discount, but occasionally there is a freebie.
Such as right now they have MAGIX PC Check & Tuning 2011  (normally $49 USD).
I installed it.  Seems okay...  Not sure if it's any better then Advanced System Care Free, CCleaner, or any of the others.
You have to give Magix your email, so I'm sure I'll be getting an "upgrade offer" for version 2012 soon...

Anyway, the site is worth checking out every now and then.

This site, and its sister site softwarecrew, is run by the betanews/fileforum crew. No thanks.

Why not?  What's the scoop with betanews/fileforum?

Run a search in this forum. It's hardly worth repeating or starting another discussion about them.  :)

-it used to be good, but then it degraded.

"Funny" though: I haven't visited BetaNews in a couple of years, but when I just now went to this new Download Crew, where I never have been before, I was already logged in!!

Meh..  Betanews does smack of commercialism.   :-\
Probably won't ever get on my "check daily" list....   But I'll still check it for freebies now and again.   ;)

The MAGIX PC Check & Tuning 2011 -giveaway has ended. I have been told by others that the program ("2011") is okay, but still I *need* to say that version 2010 gave me my first blue screen in a couple of years!
