  • WTF is with all these obviously fake, repeated comments by fake people on here? I've noticed them on other programs reviews as well here, and it's despicable! It's so obvious, I mean at least TRY to make it seem real, instead of having three or four different names post the exact same comment, one after another. Honestly whenever I see these, I can't help but feel almost completely sure that these people are just trying to boost the ratings on SF up for their own program, which is pathetic. Just having more people downloading it isn't going to do anything for you, you need people to actually like it, too. Unfortunate, too, if it's actually a good piece of software! Also, Windows 8 is a disgrace and should never be called an OS by any means. Shame on MS for that pile of crap. It's hideous, too! I like MORE functionality with my computer, not LESS! Stop trying to appeal to the morons who don't know how to use computers, and making it more like mobile, the majority of major computer users aren't these people, and most of us would rather have our phones more like our computers, not vice versa. I wouldn't touch 8 with a ten foot pole.
