Used to dwld from CNet for a long time, but one little irritant after the other, have moved on. Specially when it appeared most «reviews» were: "We recommend this software"! How is that even possible ??!!
Was still going there for the users comments, as some recommend better alternatives ...
But now w this installer crap, it's just a no-go-zone !
Now I mostly use Softpedia, bc they always make it clear if there is anything bundled w the prog, detail all the restrictions, plus the changelogs are up to date, the reviews are detailed, there are screenshots, etc. It all does help decide if the sw is what I'm looking for or not beforehand
Just finished reading all the DC thread that someone kindly posted the link above
I knew abt BrotherSoft & Softonic, never go there, but learned that Tucows went to the dark side too
Noticed that FreewareBB is not mentioned prominently on the «good alternative sites» list, even though Marko posted on that thread. And Softpedia is only mentioned in passing!!?, not really «recommended»
Why? What am I missing? Thought Softpedia was considered one of the good guys
Could someone enlighten me? TIA
N.B.: Funny story abt Softonic - Long time ago, I used to go there bc they have information & reviews from different countries, since I speak several languages, it was interesting to see the review from the Brazil editor contradicting the one from Spain & saying smtg different from the English & French ones. Reading them all gave me a better idea who was fibbing
