Freeware Appreciation Page

Scarebear / 1 decade ago (29 January 2002 11:46)

If you have ever loved a Freeware application and never actually let the creator know, then send them an email. Let them know they are appreciated.

Feel free to leave comments here for your favourite application. The software creator may not ever see this page, but at least others can discover that an application is cool enough for you to comment on Happy

Goetz´s file splitter

and EditPad Classic

While none of these are skinnable they are all great survival tools for those places where the sysadmin is a maniac.

For me ControlBar has been the most useful skinnable app. (that sysadmin killed all of the toolbars...not just the quicklaunch).

OH! and don´t let me forget FrontPage Express.

KewlpÄd, colorpad, Cursearch! and Panekiller is the one I use the most and I actually did thank them at one time. But in general I use too much freebies for me to list them all here.

I must say that the most frequently used freeware on my box is LiteStep. However, you are correct Jason, we don´t get a chance to actually thank the creators and Dev teams. I am also talking about module creators that I never get the chance to thank and there are just way to many to mention. As a matter of fact, along with LiteStep core modules.. I use more LS freeware modules then all other skinning apps put together.
LS is self contained.. when I am running my ´larger´ themes, the only non LS skinning app I use is WB (EFX) because LS comes with modules that just about cover any task. There is even an ICQ plug for LS.. hehe. However, I do get to use, test and skin other freeware. 8)

And most frequently used non LS freeware app on my desktop is... ICQ+

Well,. the problem with winsite is that it is unmoderated, so anyone can submit to it,... for example: It has Babya downloads... :| I go to for most of my software needs (although i dont need much..).

Great reminder Scarebear! Freeware plays a big part in the skinning world and we really should thank the authors. If it is freeware I am thankful for it, even if I don´t use it! LiteStep and Winamp2 would be my two favorites. PK and Pogz make great freeware apps too!
So I would like to say THANK YOU PK and THANK YOU pogrelz! Happy
