Amazon.com Review

Apple has a way of creating and nurturing intense enthusiasmamong users, and not since the switch to the PowerPC architecture haveApple loyalists been as excited as they are now with the release of MacOS X, the long-awaited, wholly new operating system for theMacintosh.

History lesson
Actually, "wholly new" isn't entirely true. Mac OS X is built on thefoundation and architecture laid by the late NeXT Computer, Inc., inits NeXTSTEP operating system. Users familiar with NeXTSTEP (there areat least three of us) will see many familiar features in OS X, such asthe spinning rainbow ball, NetInfo, and dot-app folder packages, butthere is a lot of new ground here, too.

Mac OS X essentially takes the best of NeXTSTEP (the Unix core, NetInfounderpinnings, OS Services, Objective C, etc.) and goes even further,making it Macintosh. On the surface of OS X, we have fancy new windowsand a new desktop (the Aqua interface), new file open/save dialogboxes, new menus... but these are just the fancy interface features.The real strength is under the hood. Think of it as having the power,strength, and flexibility of Unix, but with the ease of use ofMacintosh.

Who should (and shouldn't) upgrade?
Who should upgrade to Mac OS X? The answer is both simple and complex:everybody with a blue and white G3 and later Macintosh, especiallythose with a dual-processor G4, will benefit from the new OS. That'sthe short answer.

The long answer is this: If you use your Mac on a daily basis to earnyour living, you won't be able to use Mac OS X for everything, becausethe chances are good that as of this writing (late March, 2001), theapplications you use most aren't fully compatible with OS X. Adobe,Macromedia, Quark, and others have all promised OS X versions of theirflagship apps, but none are yet shipping.

The good news is that it's fairly easy to set up your system to startup using either Mac OS X or OS 9.1, and, in many cases, you can run MacOS X and still run your legacy application, thanks to Mac OS X'sClassic mode. Be careful doing this--not all applications are happywhen running under Classic mode, and some features might not work. Fornow, you'll just have to try them and see.

There are still some things to be ironed out, too. Wacom, the tabletmanufacturer, has yet to release a driver for Mac OS X. The company'sWeb site says a driver will be out by summer, but for now the tablet isuseless under Mac OS X. Also, only USB printers work, and only somedrivers are available. Ditto for scanners. SCSI support isn't allthere, either (rendering our Zip and Jaz drives useless under OS X).USB Zip drives should work, though.

So, why upgrade?
For starters, when you buy Mac OS X, you get three CDs in the box: theMac OS X CD, a Mac OS 9.1 CD, and the Mac OS X Developer's Tools CD.Most end users won't be interested in the Developer's CD, but there areprobably quite a few people interested in learning how to program butwho don't know where to start. Programming under Mac OS X is a realpleasure, and giving away the tools to create great applications is aterrific idea. We can't wait to see what the shareware market will looklike one year from now.

Many users who haven't already upgraded to Mac OS 9.1 should look atthis upgrade from a different perspective: it's an upgrade to OS 9.1,but you also get Mac OS X bundled with it.

OS X has some pretty attractive features, making it worth the learningcurve:

  • Protected memory. In short, if an application crashes, the wholesystem doesn't go down with it.
  • Improved multiprocessor support. If you've got a dual-processor G4,you want Mac OS X and as many OS X applications as you can get. Makethose two little CPUs earn their keep!
  • Improved multitasking. Running multiple applications at once is nowcause for celebration, not a coffee break.
  • Improved networking. Internet and intranet networking are nowsupported at a core level, making them faster and more reliable.
  • Support for large disks, large amounts of RAM, and more than twoprocessors. So you think a dual G4 is fast? Expect to see a quad G4soon.
  • And if the above tangible technical reasons aren't enough, do itjust for the interface. The customizable dock, windows, icons, andtranslucent menus are just beautiful, and the integration of words,pictures, music, and movies is seamless.

Upgrade now. Boot up into Mac OS 9.1 90 percent of the time and theremaining 10 percent use Mac OS X. Learn the interface and nuances ofthe new features. As more native Mac OS X applications (i.e., the onesyou need) become available in the coming months, watch the 90/10percentage swing toward 10/90. Before you know it, you won't be able toremember the last time you started up OS 9.1, and you'll hate it whenyou do. --Mike Caputo ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Lifesaver
My G4 has been beautifully stable but software conflicts brought it to its knees. It is terrifying when your hard drive disappears and the disk utility repair functions are useless. If you see the warning, "overlapping extent allocation", breathe easier...DiskWarrior handles it. Before you call an expert (who over the phone suggested my drive had died) try DiskWarrior. Within 30 minutes, I had my computer back.

5-0 out of 5 stars dental floss for your Macintosh
Diskwarrior is an essential utility for Mac OS X. I don't even wait til applications start quitting unexpectedly to use Diskwarrior. I even leave my Diskwarrior CD in the CD drive. I do a restart with the Diskwarrior CD and let it do it's thing to keep the directories in tip top shape as I start my day. After awhile, this becomes second nature..like brushing your teeth.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works Great (and a manual is barely required)
I had some 30 overlapped files (thanks to MSN) on my 10.2 OS G4. The most recent Techtool 4 couldn't do a thing. And the recommendations I saw on the net to run older versions of First Aid didn't work either. My computer was killing itself due to all these files sharing the same space.

DiskWarrior worked. Period.

A few caveats, however.

The PDF manual states quite clearly that you should first run DiskWarrior directly from the CD ROM before doing other things - such as installing the program on your own hard drive. It would have been nice to have that in writing.

The running of the program is simple and consists of, I believe, two mouse clicks. What manual do you need to do that? The program does what it does and it requires very few acts on the part of the user. But still, a printed manual would have been good. A mere 25 page leaflet would have been more than sufficient. Seems like this wouldn't add too much to the production cost of the software.

The big drawback here is time. DiskWarrior is sloooow. The start up takes several minutes and the maintenance itself, at least in my situation, took some five hours. I've never had a disk utility take so long to fix a problem. In any case, if you've got to fix your computer and you're using this software, don't plan on cheerily getting back to your computer in just a few minutes.

This is the second version of DiskWarrior I've owned. I had Vers. 1.0 which seemed to work, but it never saved my can. It always seemed that either Norton or Techtool could take care of almost any problem that DiskWarrior could. But not this time with OS X. I'm sure others have had differenct experiences, but this is still a good program. It's not going to fix all problems (no utility can), but it just might save your computer if it specifically has disk directory problems. Ultimately, you really do need to have at least two utilities. One of them is either Norton or Techtool. The other is DiskWarrior.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad docs, Bad discs, Bad experience
I wish I could be one of those people giving DiskWarrior 5 stars and saying "it saved my keester!" Unfortunately, my case is more "I'm still hosed...and now I'm out a hundred bucks!"

The first annoyance was that the DiskWarrior CD itself has been reproduced so cheaply (blue dye, like a 10-cent blank CDR for home burning use) that my G4 wouldn't recognize it. "Yeah, those Phillips superdrives are touchy," says tech support. Mind you, the drive has never rejected any OTHER disc I've tried.

And despite the hundred dollar price tag, there are no printed docs with the disc - just a PDF manual. You know, the kind you could read IF your computer was working. Of course, if it was working you wouldn't need DiskWarrior, would you?

In the PDF manual, it says you can make an additional startup disc (in this case to boot into OS 9 instead of the default OS X)...but it doesn't say HOW to do this, or even hint at it. It's entirely unintuitive, and I needed two phonecalls to tech support AND considerable knowledge of Macs to make such a disc. Not that it helped.

Maybe my problem is more than just a bad directory - but I don't think so. So far, DiskWarrior hasn't accomplished anything. I'd call tech support for help, but they keep only banker's hours (M-F and out the door by 5 central). Considering the markup on this disc-without-manual, you'd think they could afford decent tech support.

I've heard enough good things about DiskWarrior to think it must be doing something for somebody. But for me, the program is overpriced, under documented and a waste of time.

1-0 out of 5 stars Defective product
I bought it Diskwarrior 3.0 after reading several reviews, what they don't tell you is that 3.0 does not work with 10.3, and that after you get it, you will have to to call the company and pay an additional $20 for a working product (3.01). ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best OS out there. Period.
I used to hate Macs especially because of their OS. It was old, unstable and Mac users had to wait ages for updates which they had to pay to get.

Well, MacOS X, is by far the most complete and beautifully engineered OS out there (at least on a commercial basis). It is based on NeXT (using the Mach ker.nel) and BSD -- a feature which offers a lot to someone coming from a UNIX platform -- and clearly the best GUI out there.

Some may argue that it is not as polished as it could, but, hey, what is? Windows or Linux? Besides, Apple is releasing free *until now* revisions for download every couple of months and it has improved a lot since 10.0. (the current version at the time of writing is 10.1.2). Release 10.2 is rumoured to have great new features old Mac users requested as well as more language packs and a speedier Quartz. (the graphics engine)

I recommend this to anyone open-minded enough to leave windows behind him/her.

5-0 out of 5 stars Apple At Its Best
With the release of 10.1.3, Apple has really elevated the Macintosh platform to the next level. Internet, e-mail, digital photography, MP3 music, and even home movies are all easy to view, create, store, and enjoy. With the power of UNIX underlying the user friendly interface, many developers are now using this platform to develop applications using a variety of tools including Cocoa, Applescript, Objective C, and Java.

I use applications such as Microsoft Office, Quicken 2002, Palm HotSync, Photoshop, GoLive, and Watson everyday. No longer is it necessary to revert to "Classic" mode.

Now you can connect to WiFi (802.11b) networks and Bluetooth enabled devices. Internet setup is simple and multi-homing automatically ensures that you are connected if you switch between dial-up, ethernet, and wireless connections.

Security is also top-notch thanks to the UNIX core. OS 10.1.3 has a built in firewall that can be tweaked to your individual preference. If you enjoy serving web pages, this system has a built in implementation of Apache. You can add PHP, MySQL, and other tools to build an advanced web serving platform.

If you have a Macintosh and you do not have OS 10.1.3, you are not taking full advantage of your computer.

5-0 out of 5 stars OS X Reaches Maturity
I'm a small business owner and have hesitated upgrading to OS X from "Classic 9.x" until I felt that it would help me in my business, rather then create a lot of work in trying to debug things.

OS X 10.1 seems to have reached this level. I run it now constantly on my G4 Cube and it is THE most stable OS I have ever used (either from Apple or other MS or Unix-based systems). The system stays up 99.99+% of the time, running MS Entourage and some other Classic applications in the background, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

I even run our Windows-only QuickBooks Pro accounting software through Virtual PC's excellent emulation software, native on X! This is one giant step forward for computing needs at work or at home. Plugging in a digital camera through USB or Firewire works flawless and automatic. The interface is beautiful and intuitive and you can feel the power of the Unix engine underlying the software without having to know anything about it.

I just upgraded all our office iMacs and iBooks with memory (cheap these days!) and will network OS X exclusively in the near future.

2-0 out of 5 stars Watch out for USB driver problems and kernel panics
Six months into using OS -X started having Kernel panics (Apple's blue secreen of death). Not running non-Apple programs, multi-tasking, or running peculiar non-standard hardware (Logitech tracball, HP printer/scanner). 5 trips to the repair shop - new hard drive, new RAM, new system board, upgrade to 10.2.8; 4 phone calls to Apple "Support." Kernel panics returned. Lots of web searches - found lots of boards where people have the same experience, and found the only permanent solution was downgrading to OS9 or upgrading to OS 10.3. "Support" denies it's poor USB software.

4-0 out of 5 stars I love OS X, but be wary of the server version
my advice is to make sure you need it before you buy it, but if you know you need it, then buy it. How will you know? If you need it, you would already know that you do. If you don't know that you need server version, then you probably don't need it. Most day to day tasks are done by the normal version of the os in ways that are much simpler than the server tools. Now you do get a variety of nice things with the unlimited client, such as server managment systems, monitoring systems, etc., but if you are just doing a basic install without a complex networking or users/groups system, then you probably should try to do what you need to do with a 10.1 or 10.2 and see if you actually have to own the server. I would say the ideal application of a server install is for a medium to large lab install using netboot, where the actual cost of doing it via server will lower the TCO significantly. ...

Amazon.com Review

The days of the simple CD-burning utility are seemingly over, and in thecase of Roxio's Toast 5 Titanium, it's a good thing. Lately we've been seeing CD-burning software that attempts to do everything but clean the kitchensink, with varying levels of success. In the case of Toast 5, the proverbialsink is spotless. Plenty of useful features like CD labeling, audio extraction,and data storage provide meat-and-potatoes satiation. The ability to remove hissand crackle from old LPs, and Toast's new OS X-influenced interface, is like thecherry on top of the dessert. And, of course, the bread-and-butter feature isToast's delicious burning options.

Roxio has kept the functionality of its drag-and-drop window intact from theprevious version, only now the design is reminiscent of a funky '50s dinerjukebox. The window is resizable, with simple buttons specifying the type of CDyou wish to burn. Click audio, data, copy, or other, and the button turns blue.Pop a blank CD-R into your drive, drag your files into the window, hit that bigred glowing record button in the corner, and you're cooking. Toast 5 continuesto support all major CD formats (like the previous version), and additionalformats including MP3, Mac/ISO hybrid, and VideoCD (playable on many DVDplayers). If that was all there is to this package, we'd be done right here,satisfied, and ready for a nap.

But, as we've mentioned, Roxio has loaded plenty of goodies onto the Toast 5CD-ROM, some of them frivolous and fattening, (isn't that what goodies are for?)some of them extremely useful sides. We particularly like iView Multimedia,which lets you catalog all your images, building a thumbnail library for easyorganization and retrieval. Also cool is CD Spin Doctor. Although we love ourvinyl here at Amazon.com, we've yet to see a device that will play records inthe car. CD Spin Doctor is a simple application that will digitize and create awaveform of your old LPs and cassettes, then let you add simple filters toimprove the audio. Remove hiss, clicks, and pops, and then burn the result toaudio CD.

There's plenty more on the table. Magic Mouse Discus is a basic labeling kit foryour CDs. Or you can export included templates to Freehand 9, AppleWorks, orQuark for more complex graphic design for your labels. New in Toast 5 is theuseful background burning capability, allowing you to work in other applicationswhile Toast is cooking up your discs. Make sure you have plenty of RAM for thisfunction. You even get folders filled with excellent digital photographs andfree music from popular groups and musicians.

We could go on listing savory features, yet will contain ourselves and simplyadmonish the Macintosh users among you: There's no reason not to buy Toast 5Titanium. It's a well-balanced, nutritious software program that will slake yourravenous hunger. --John Bosch ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Feeling Toasty
Toast is a really nice software package, although quirky at times. All the blame can't be placed on Toast. It, like so many other software titles, adds extensions to your Mac which can conflict with so many other extensions. Still, if your Mac is reasonably conflict free, you should be able to burn CDs or DVDs with fervor. The interface is clean, although not intuitive enough. (Click-and-hold a button for options is not an obvious method.) Toast does a very good job of burning Mac data, PC data and hybrid data CDs. Audio burning has also been improved in this version and, Toast can now recognize an audio image file to find track breaks. Previously only Jam was smart enough to recognize individual tracks in an audio image.
Some tips: Increase the memory allocation to the application. Give Toast a large buffer (64K). Try to avoid disk-at-once recording. DAO is good for "live" recordings, where you don't want an audible gap between tracks, but it taxes the system. If you can stand to have gaps between the tracks, track-at-once is more reliable. Use test mode to determine if your system is able to transfer data quickly enough for the speed you've requested for a burn. DAO and high-speed burning require data to be transferred at very high data rates. You may find you need to burn at a slower speed to achieve reliable burns. The "Toast CD Reader" extension is only needed if you intend to use your CD burner to read existing data or audio CDs. If you only want to burn CDs with your burner, you can safely run without the extension.
Background burning is a nice feature, but, if you are using the system for other tasks while burning, you are at risk for data underruns. Also, if your source is MP3 files, remember, MP3s must be converted before actually being written to your new CD. This too can add to the delays in data transfer. If you have the disk space, convert MP3 files to AIFF files before burning and use the AIFF files with Toast for more reliable results.

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential tool for your Mac
I used my new iMac with superdrive for almost four months before I discovered this program. It took a bit of research for me to learn why I needed this program when OS X comes with its own built in CD/DVD burn software. If all you need to do is burn discs for backup and make music CDs and DVDs - you don't need Toast. However, if you want to make PC-compatible DVDs or CDs or want to burn DVD-R's that will play in a DVD player without using the iDVD application, then you need Toast.

Basically anything I have wanted to do with a CD/DVD burner, this sofware supported it. I had no problems with install and it has worked flawlessly since I installed it. The user interface is highly intutive and I have not had to crack open the help more than once. Highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars May be preferable to Toast 6
Apple's iTunes does fine by burning CD's, but Toast is handier for burning and copying non-musical files and documents. In fact, Toast 5, with the bundled Spin Doctor, is the only way to go if you're converting analog to digital and editing out "dead space" and other objectionable noise on the wave forms. Toast 6, on the other hand, includes an "improved" Spin Doctor (v. 2) that makes the aforesaid editing a laborious, imprecise, and impractical exercise. If you're planning to do manual editing of extended audio tracks--a radio broadcast, for example--forget about Toast 6. But now you have another messy problem: Toast 5 is not designed for OSX, and Roxio no longer offers as a download the necessary upgrade to make Spin Doctor, v. 1, compatible with OSX.

The solution? Go with Toast 5 and use it in OS9. Or switch to a shareware program like Sound Studio (more complicated and time-consuming than Spin Doctor). Or switch to a PC and pick up Cool Edit.

2-0 out of 5 stars ripped off
I bought toast 5 to burn my vinyl onto CD.
It came with SpinDoctor.
I was promised a FREE upgrade to OSX. When I upgraded my OS, I went to download the upgrade. Though Toast 5 could be upgraded, Spin Doctor was not available. After weeks of waiting, I got a response from Roxio saying that SpinDoctor was no longer available from them. I wrote several letters. They offered no remedy, just kept me waiting, but oh yes, they would be happy to SELL me a copy of Toast 6 with the new component that replaces SpinDoctor and is OSX compatible. Boy do I feel ripped off. Toast worked great, but I will never trust Roxio again. I certainly don't want to give them any more money.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for Mac users
Great overall for Macs. I got this software mainly due to the fact that iPhoto does not allow for multisession burning. Using this software allows me to achieve this although it not as easy as I originally thought (nothing is as easy as using Mac software - oh well). Also, I had some problems making cross-platform (Mac/PC) discs.
Additionally, the included Discus software is pretty good for making labels. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Sundial is a software program that displays time-lapse photography on your computer desktop behind all windows and icons. After you install and configure Sundial, it will automatically display an image from the scene you selected every time you start your computer, then update it periodically over the course of the day. The exact image displayed at any moment depends on the current time of day, the date, and your geographic location. Sundial calculates the time of sunrise, sunset, dawn, and dusk at your location and arranges for these events to occur at the same time on your computer. Sundial can also display still pictures on your desktop that do not change. Sundial movies come on CD-ROM in high-quality 24 bpp color in three sizes (640 x 480, 832 x 624, and 1,024 x 768) for maximum display quality on different monitor sizes. Larger sizes are also available for a nominal charge. The movies display a new image every five minutes for an entire 24 hours, and the transition between the images is smooth and virtually instantaneous.

This version of Sundial features 10 scenes from Hawaii, including the City of Refuge, a view overlooking the Na Pali coast, Waikiki Beach, and Oahu Beach. Each scene contains 24 hours worth of images, which you can preview in seconds prior to selecting your favorite scene. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Great if you have cable ...
This sounds like a great idea, but it's not workable if you connect via a dial-up modem. The scenes don't change unless you're online, see. So thanks for a great idea, but maybe I'll keep looking.

5-0 out of 5 stars My favorite thing about my computer
I have had Sundial Hawaii on my desktop for the past year or so. Its breathtaking pictures always bring a smile to my face, as they remind me of my wonderful past vacations to the Islands. Whenever I am in the mood to escape and wish I could be back in the warm sun of Honolulu's Waikiki Beach, all I have to do is take a look at my computer monitor and daydream of being there. It's wonderful to watch people walking along the beach or boats going out to sea. I especially love how the scene changes with the time of day, so each day I have the chance to watch a Hawaiian sunset. I've even had friends ask me how they can get their own copy.

The only problem with Sundial is that it can be very tempermental at times - and by that I mean that it needs a lot of memory allocated to it to work well or the application will quit on you. Also a good quality, high resolution monitor is ideal for the best picture---I have a Mac and its graphics work excellently with Sundial. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good but you should just own a PC
For a few bucks more you can get a real PC. And if you get Windows XP (Home or Professional) you have an OS that's more stable, more user-friendly and definitely far less snobbish than OS X. Aren't you sick of OS X hangs yet?

3-0 out of 5 stars Oh ish, a PC operating system on a Macintosh
I bought this software for a single purpose: To run Windows only web services on my Macintosh (Paltalk.com). I first loaded this software onto my G4 400 which is running Mac OS 9.21. Installation was a snap and I was quickly surfing the web through Explorer running on Windows 2000. I downloaded the PC only web software and fired it up. Here is where the problems were encountered. I have GB cable and was able to hear incoming audio just fine, but I was unable to get outgoing audio to work on my G4 desktop.

Undaunted, I loaded Virtual PC with Windows 2000 on my G4 PowerBook (667mhz) in the hopes that the additional processor speed would cure my recording woes. This machine has OS 10.2 on it, and again installation was a snap. Again I was surfing and downloading the Paltalk.com software and again, I couldn't get Windows to record my voice so that it could be understood. In other words, this software didn't fulfill my sole reason for purchasing it and $185.00 was foolishly spent just to get the Paltalk software to work on one of my Macs. Bummer.

Curiously, I've also had difficulties getting Virtual PC to be able to see the CD-ROM which makes me wonder how on earth you are supposed to load any software that doesn't come off the web into the Windows 2000 envirnment.

All in all, I could have bought a slow-yet serviceable-used PC for the price of this software. The bottom line: The evil empire is still just as evil even when loaded unto a Macintosh.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Mac 8500 w/ G3/11gb hard drives
After you try to load this software on a Mac 8500 w/G3 w/ 1 gb hard drive, you are told that the internal hard drive must be able to accept 1.5 gb.
Moving everything but the system file to attached 10gb drive still won't allow it to load.Also you learn that the G3 must run at 400mhz.
Sure would have been nice to have had this info before spending [$$$]. Never even got close to loading Windows2000!

4-0 out of 5 stars Which do you really desire?
Running a PC operating system is somewhat unusual on a Macintosh but is often needed. Macs do not deal with .exe and .com file extensions and for good reason. They are the ones that most often carry the virus which plagues the windows industry. Virtual PC for Mac with Win 2000 is good if you desire a network setup due to its compatability with Win NT 4.0.
This version (5) will run on both OS 9 and OS X but remember that it requires alot of RAM and still runs sluggish when compared to the Mac. If you have to be in the PC spectrum but want the ease of owning a Macintosh, then this is a good choice.

1-0 out of 5 stars VPC Yes, Win 2K version No!
You need to stay away from this version of VPC 5. The Win 2K OS does not come as a seperate disk. If the need ever arises to reinstall the OS, it looks like you will have to reinstall the complete VPC program. This could destroy any specific configurations to other operating systems you may have installed within VPC 5.

This issue has not been addressed by Connectix, the product developer. I have looked on their website and FAQ forums and I have not observed any fix for the reinstallation problem.

My suggestion is that you purchase the basic VPC 5 program without the OS and that you purchase Win 2K seperately. I would avoid purchasing the Connectix OS pack and just purchase the OS directly. I have installed 7 different OS from Linux 4.5 to 7.0, Win 95/98/SE, Win NT, MSDOS 5 and 6 and have not run into any problems during the installation. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Spring Cleaning makes a simple promise: it will let you get rid of thegarbage on your hard drive--files and apps that are duplicates,damaged, unused, or otherwise useless--and have a happier, fastercomputer, slimmed down to fighting trim. Spring Cleaning definitelydelivers, flagging countless megabytes of suspect software that might beclogging up the works. But be warned that this isn't the fire-and-forget simplicity of Norton Utilities and the like--for the most part, you'll actually need to get your hands dirty and make the final call, file by file, on what stays and what goes. And that means novice users, while they can still get a lot out of this package, might be a little intimidated by some of the choices.

With 15 programs in one package, Spring Cleaning guides you through a set ofsophisticated searches grouped under different headings: Cleanup,Maintenance, Organize, and Internet. (You also get a restore functionfor undoing any over-enthusiastic cleanings--a saving grace especiallyfor those novices.) A full Cleanup pass might take an hour or more, while Maintenance, Organize, and Internet functions can take considerablyless time (this varies wildly, of course, depending on the size and statusof your drive). Each of the 15 searches rounds up a differentsort of potential culprit: for example, Duplicates Finder pointsout similar and identical files (great for chucking duped-up helpengines and fonts); File Checker finds damaged files; andAlias Fixer pulls up aliases that don't point anywhere. In all cases,you're given several choices of what to do, from trashing filesoutright to archiving them. MacUninstaller proves especiallyuseful, allowing you to completely clean out all traces of aparticular program from your hard drive, and the Internet-specificsearches identify hidden (and often large) e-mail attachments andcache files.

As a diagnostic tool, Spring Cleaning is hard to beat: nothing elseis more effective for nominating candidates for a speedy deletion.Just realize that, while it might have been easy downloading all thatsoftware over the Internet in the last few months, taking out thetrash might prove considerably less fun. And then you'll have to askyourself, "So... how much does a bigger hard drive cost these daysanyway?" --Paul Hughes ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This really does what it says it does
I have been using this for a while now and I really like it. I don't go much beyond the standard mode because everything I use is right there, plus I like that everything I do there can be undone. I have gotten rid of lots of junk I didn't even know I had and now my Mac runs better. It doesn't seem to crash as often and finds go quicker. I really love the mail cleaner tool. I had no idea that Eudora kept a copy of all of my email attachments. Some of the cartoons/pix my friends send me are kind of racy and even though I forward them on to others I don't want to keep them on my Mac - too embarassing. I was shocked that even though I thought I deleted them, Eudora still kept a copy of them hidden from my view.

5-0 out of 5 stars helpful and thorough- it's a must for computer clean up
Spring Cleaning is a great way to help get your Macintosh organized and cleaned up. Follow the easy guide and choose a cleaning utility like MacUninstaller to find folders, Apps, fonts etc. associated with a particular application, you can then choose to move them to a backup archive using StuffIt (I have all my Read Me files in one spot now), or a storage folder, or just plain move them to the trash. If you aren't sure, move them to a storage folder first, if everything's running smoothly after a couple weeks, then empty your storage folder. The iClean utility is awesome for getting rid of your Internet surfing tracks to get rid of cache, cookies and other junk (I use mine weekly).

1-0 out of 5 stars It will clean alright - but you will regret this broom !
This is one of those classic faux pas of the software world like Dbase IV, Dos 4, Delphi 4 - the cursed 4 number. So many bugs you will need two hands to swat out all the bugs in this release.

First off the interface is just plain awful. Hard to navigate, difficult and unfriendly to use, impossible to set the configuration the way you would like to.

Once you somehow manage to set the configuration the program proceeds to ignore your settings completely and totally as though you never entered them. I specifically set the program to ignore all Speech Type files. I ran the Uninstall option and there lo and behold were all the speech files cluttering up the window. I then went through and pinpointed just four specific files that I wanted it to ignore. No good. Their they were sitting pretty staring me in the face.

At the same time applications that I wanted to unintstall such as Office 2001, the Uninstall was completely blind to. How can this program be blind to such a large application as Office 2001 I will never understand. Office 2001 fully installed is an elephant. Spring Cleaning never saw it.

Then I came to uninstall Personal Web Server. It found the app but it wanted to uninstall Control Panels along with the app. I was horrified. It was trying to uninstall Modem control panels that had nothing to do with Personal Web Server - not even remotely !

Then I came to uninstall Dreamweaver Ultradev 4. Never saw it - not once.

I wrote up all this information to Aladdin. Never heard from them. I then wrote to Digital River, the company that is responsible for the download process and they were quite willing to refund me my money.

This is a cursed 4.0 program. Use at your own peril I would suggest. ... Read more
