I'm all about using whatever tools work. If the thing flat out gets the job done, whether it is free or not, that is what counts, I would think.
My mistake was mentioning it in the area dedicated for CloneDVD discussion, it seems.
For the life of me, I can't understand the hatred towards a program that is so capable and functional, not to mention free.
It's really too bad some people just can't be open to all of the options available to them instead of having to resort to rabid fanboyism.
It should be about helping a person reach a solution, first and foremost, I would think. Not about advocating a single brand at the expense of the consumer. If one app isn't doing it, for whatever reason, there should be no harm in recommending alternatives. At the very least, they may be able to get a functioning solution until they are able to work out the kinks in their understanding of the other software they were looking at. Or, they may be able to help identify a shortcoming of the software and recommend having it corrected.
Information should be shared, not surpressed.
