I cut this from a GRC newsgroup post this morning. I'm assuming it's legit. I know that Directory Opus is as good as it gets.
Directory Opus is *by far* the best file manager I've tried.
It costs about 85 AUD/ $64 / £36 . I paid full price in July 2003,
and (despite being a cheapskate, and despite a similar discount
being available at Xmas 03 <sigh>), haven't regretted it.
But I've received this offer (no good to me
, which appears to be
a genuine 47% discount (down to 45 AUD / $34 / £19 ).
The only catch seems to be that it expires on January 1st, 2006,
thus effectively reducing the trial period (if you start now) from
60 days to about 15 days.
But if you decide about things quickly, have nothing to do over the
holidays, or have tried and liked it before (but balked at the
price), then this might be of interest :-
