The Microsoft & WUGNET Shareware Pick of the Week for Windows
Each week Microsoft(R) and WUGNET(R) feature a Windows(R) shareware application demonstrating the very highest programming standards possible. Each new application selected for this award is exhaustively reviewed and less than five percent make the cut. It is our intent to showcase only the very "best-of-the-best" applications. New applications must work with Windows Vista and Windows 7, but many of our past selections also work with prior versions of Windows.
