Editors' Review

Pitaschio is a utility with a whole lot of options and not a lot of rhyme or reason. Although it offers some useful features, the strange combination of things it does left us scratching our heads.

The program's interface is basic, with a lot of drop-down menus and check boxes. It's easy enough to navigate, and some of the features are obviously helpful. For example, the program allows users to disable their mouse and keyboard so that they can be cleaned. That's a good thing. The program also has a random password generator. Swell. Users can choose from 21 different mouse short cuts, allowing them, for example, to start their screensaver by double clicking on the desktop. Users can disable certain keys on the keyboard, and the program offers a ton of options for dealing with windows, which we don't fully understand. These features might be tremendously useful, but we have no way of knowing, as the program includes no Help file. Most bizarrely, the program tells users where the moon currently is in its cycle, which strikes us as a perfectly random feature to throw in. How do we feel about Pitaschio? We're not sure. Although it seems somewhat useful, we are frustrated by the fact that it has cobbled together so many features with no obvious purpose behind them. Generally, we're not impressed.

Pitaschio is free. It comes as a zip file and operates after extraction with no installation. We recommend this program with reservations; there's nothing functionally wrong with it, we're just not sure of the point.
