I'm trying to figure out exactly what kind of site this is


http://softex.meganet.lt/news.php?readmore=3343


since SiteAdvisor gives it a clean rating:

http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/meganet.lt



What's really strange in that Siteadvisor review
is that they give a keygen a clean rating!


How can McAfee put their name behind a program that states:

http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/meg...loads/1900850/

> We did not test what changes Active Desktop Calendar Keygen

(ActiveDesktopCalendar-kg.rar) made to the system registry.

It's just a download site with commentary. What I don't like about it is
that it doesn't distinguish between commercial software, shareware,
trialware, freeware -- it's all jumbled together.

A lot of the commentary was by newbies, of the "Gee whiz, wow!" variety.
I don't care for reviews by people who know less than I do.

You do what you want; I'm going to ignore it.

Nor does it distinguish between pirated software and legitimate
software. Hiren's BootCD is put together with pirated software. To my
knowledge, the only legitimate generated Boot CD is Bart's PE.
