How does it work?

You must comment along with your vote. Votes without comments will not be entered

I like it, I've commented too. though I have most of that software, except the first 2, expressionengine, ibiz and ibank, or synergy classic. though if I don't have them, I most likely have no use for them. I don't use super duper, I currently have been using deja vu, its very good and has the features I'm looking for. I guess we'll see who wins, I doubt I will.

Will you let us know, when you've selected a winner (like saying in the post that the april contest is ending), 'cause I have this site send stuff to my .mac email and I only check it weekly (and I'd hate to miss out on free stuff, 'cause I was slow responding).
