One of our programs (Process Tamer) was mentioned on a site today that i don't remember hearing about before.  But it is quite nice.  Reviews the authors favorite freeware discoveries.  His mission statement sounds nice and the site has a nice blog feel to it, along with nice big pictures and commentary.

Quote
My mission: To replace as many retail/shareware software as I can with first rate FREEWARE alternatives, such that one day every installed program that I use will be FREE.

But this site will not list every single free program on the planet. Sometimes less is more!

I assume that for every category there are one or two programs that anybody would want to use. This site will present you with these handful of options, filtered and picked out.

If you have better things to do than scour the web for cracks, serials, and hacked copies of the software you use, then this site is for you, because the free software that is presented here is in most cases BETTER than anything you could pay for.

I created this site because I enjoy finding, downloading and testing new software. I hope you will enjoy these programs too.

It's too simple for me; is that why folks love it? I admit I love FastStone's MaxView program. I do love the color scheme of the freewaregenius site. Borat say: "Very nice!"

May be he just got fed up with the many many retail/shareware products which are not worth paying/cracking? Got addicted to freeware and now cant see anything else. Unless payware is better why pay up sounds good to me.

I dont think those who base income on coding would release much freeware! Besides some of the software listed will eventually spin off in payware versions, some already are connected. Freeware could be a way of introducing/(beta)testing software at the marketplace.

I've seen launchy top other lists, too. I was reading one recently and got as far as thinking "I'd better point this bozo towards F&RR", then promptly forgot the whole thing... I had that thought because it was the second time I've seen launchy touted (this makes three) in the last month or so.

I am a wierdo, I don't like simple software.  A simple program is just too limiting.  I like features.  I like options. Gimme!

Mouser, a thought.  How about 2 modes in ScreenShot Captor, "Simple" and "Advanced".  In simple mode it would have only a few of the most common options and be as wizardy as reasonable.  You switch it into advanced mode and you have the ScreenShot Captor we know and love now.  This way, the program can appeal to both camps.  Oh, and remember the discussion about emailing images easily?  Any thoughts on that lately? smiley

People like Launchy because of how it looks! And the simplicity. Ive only tried it shortly but also only took 1 second to see why it score points. Same with for example Allsnap, very nice but does not take anything away from Screenshot Captor. Different audiences, why should freeware world be limited to a certain range of preferences? Most advanced is not the best for everyone - which makes Tekzel suggestion a good one  Cool You can say the same for many programs. All should have a clickclick "I dont have have much time and really cant be bothered to think for myself" option. May be not easy to implement unless planned from scratch.
