Horrible.

No drag 'n drop support

Why pay $10 for crap, you can make your own AppleScript for free WITH drag 'n drop support!

Lame!

Cocktail will do this, and many many other good OS X things, for five cents less.

if you're trying to delete .DS_Store files, Cocktail is a much better software value.

Actually, Cocktail is 5 dollars MORE than DS Terminator and not as simple to use when you need to quickly clean files for uploading on a regular basis. Check your facts.

Look, it's even shorter!

find . -name .DS_Store -exec rm {} \;

Look, if you find this line too hard, then this shareware author is right. And the world is doomed.

People who leave brutal comments like this
"This is stupid, why not just..." are probably just pissed off they didn't think of it first.

I am not a part of the company who developed this software.... Just a developer who is sick of the computer communities "holier than thou" attitude.

...mmmmm... I guess if you're too lazy to learn how to do this via the terminal... or use TinkerTool to view, and therefore, delete invisible files...
