"Very very disappointed by the developer's subterfuge"
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
It is sad when a developer chooses not to be up front and transparent about their software.
Butler was one of my favorites and I always heartily recommended it among my list of the best of the best freeware out there.
Sadly, it is apparent that I was wrong.
Forgetting to update VersionTracker from freeware status to shareware is really not excusable. It is not something one just forgets to do. When one makes a conscious choice to change horses mid-race and switch to a revenue generating model, it simply is not possible to just forget.
This is a deliberate omission in order to bait and switch. As a long-time loyal user who believed in this altruistic software, I am epically disappointed by this subterfuge.
FYI, the old genuinely free version works absolutely perfectly fine. I suggest others continue to use it in the spirit it was originally developed.
