    A suggestion or two for the review section...

    I think it would be very helpful, to both reviewer and reader, to have a standard format for reviews. I would like to know more about the reviewer (especially their familiarity with comparable software/hardware, etc.).

    I'd also like to know what the environment was they used the software/hardware on (fast systems can make bloat-ware seem more usable). And most importantly, I'd like to know that date of the review and version of the software/hardware reviewed/tested.

    What do you think?

      Very good points. I guess I haven't given it much thought since lately I'm writing them all. I'll start adding more information.

          What Non-Photo Software Are You Good With?
          by Doug Nelson
          After spending this past week mucking about with video codecs and compression, and teaching myself Premiere I found myself wishing more than once I had someone knowledgeable I could turn to.

          I've found myself in that similar situation for many different areas, so I thought it might be nice...

          Why is OpenSource software so ugly?
          by Doug Nelson
          I had to use gparted to install Vista this weekend, and I was reminded of my primary objection to Linux: all the interfaces and apps are ugly. Mishmashed fonts, ill-fitting UI features, and no concious attempt at any sort of unified standard.

          Even the apps offered as counter-examples...

          Doug, If this isnt the right place for a plug-in review, I apologise. I trust it will be hearded to the right pasture.
          Of all the Plug-in filters I have tried over the years, this little number from Flaming Pear software is one which I use almost every day. It's claim to fame is it's remarkable...
