>> You have to admit, these guys have attended to pretty much every feature request or problem people have addressed. And they offer this for free. It's hard to top that.

To MM Users,

The Santa Software website is currently being moved to faster and more reliable servers.

Users may not be able to access it for the next couple of days.

Thanks! 12:00pm, 26th December 2006, AEST

Your email was replied to many weeks ago, we have still not received a response.

Did you receive it? (or, have the problems being solved?)

A very valuable tool for developers, I use it all the time.

Really glad it supports UBs too.

Not only is it free, it's also open source.

Thanks for this great utility, and keep up the great work!

Nice interface, stable, free. 

Can recommend this to anyone needing a file joiner.

Great work, thanks.

Great work, I use this all the time.

Would be even better with an "Open Recent" menu. :)

Really impressed with the updates.

Glad to see that the Sparkle updater framework was added. (that's great as well) :)

Little bug report for 1.6.0:

Application menu > Check for Updates.... should have 3 periods, not 4 ;-)

Keep up the fantastic work.

REPOST (originally posted on MU 15th Feb 06)

Hi, MainMenu users,

I am posting here to inform you that from version 2.0, MainMenu will be distributed as, unfortunately, shareware. ($10-$15)

There are several reasons for this, and I can not name them all. One of the reasons is about hosting. I often receive emails from users who can not download the latest release of MainMenu due to the web host (free) being down.

In addition, the bandwidth is sometimes (especially recently) used up before the end of the month. February 2006, the bandwidth was used up not even halfway through the month.

When MainMenu 2.0 is released, please do not see it as a "bait & switch" (I will recommend a few alternatives below). I originally intended for MM to be always free.

I can understand that a large percentage of users will not be happy with this decision, and I do not blame you. There are plenty of freeware apps similar to MainMenu you can look at. Some good ones are: OnyX, CLIX, Yasu, MacJanitor, rootMachine, Anacron, maintain1, sterMachine, the list goes on. All of these can be found here at MacUpdate (use the search function).

Please have a look at those.

I won't lie to you by saying MainMenu 2.0 will be a huge update from 1.5.x, justifying the need to pay for it. However, I'll put a lot of effort into this.

If you have any questions, complaints, suggestions, requests, anything at all, please either contact me via email, or reply to this "review thread".
