You are one of the Russian authors, right?! If so, why not state it?
If not, I'm sorry for speculating but that's due to the company's insufficient communication policy (cf. their website).

What you are right in is that firstly, according to the GOTD principles, the programs given away provide neither updates nor support, and secondly exactly that was told in the Readme.txt file being part of the download on 03/24/08.

Wrong though IMHO is the conclusion you draw from these two parameters as you seem to neglect the perspective of an average GOTD visitor.

A. The GOTD principles in the first place are aimed at the cooperating companies to protect them from legal claims made by GOTD downloaders which otherwise would be possible since the software given away is commercial. Hence, companies aren't compelled to make use of that protection but instead are free to in one case or another offer some kind of perk which may be considered as an additional valuable promotion for the benefit of both the GOTD user and the offering company.

In other words: GOTD has got principles and exceptions thereof as well! That's why a couple of times we had companies who offered 1-year and more upgrade/update licences, recently Emsi a².

B. The final paragraph in the Readme.txt file you are referring to has been, as far as I remember, exactly the same since GOTD started on October 24th 2006. There has always been the three disclaimers of 1) No free technical support, 2) No free upgrades to future versions, 3) Strictly non-commercial usage.
That is to say, it's merely a standard text which almost certainly isn't going ever to be edited. Therefore the average visitor doesn't expect GOTD to waste 3 seconds on an extra check of that final part (Terms and conditions).

C. Whilst the Readme.txt as usual contained on March 24th 2008, too, the aforesaid threefold disclaimer, it can be no doubt that the About screen in the installed program itself shows "1 Year Free Upgrades". So, we have a conflict.
The question now has to be, how should a GOTD visitor resolve this conflict since the statements "No free upgrades" and "1 Year Free Upgrades" are diametrically inconsistent with one another?
Well, in the end it's not that difficult, I think. As there was a conflict between a principle and an exception of that same principle, the average GOTD visitor had to rate the probability of the exception to be intended as valid commitment higher than the principle because the latter had formally always been unaltered though overruled previously a couple of times by some kind of perk made by the company.

To cut it off, if something has been "clear like water" as you, Seijuska, like to say, then it was that a commitment shown in the program itself which had been valid through various times overrides a standard text file.

"Third .. If you don’t like what they have offered for FREE, then don’t download it."

The problem is:
You have to first download, install and run a program before you can decide whether you like it or not.

People .. People .. People

First .. Why do you think they give away stuff. To make you happy?
No, Nope, Nada .... hopefully to make money off you as a customer on some other product.

Second .. Everyone has their own opinion. For instance: Some like Nero, some don't.

Third .. If you don't like what they have offered for FREE, then don't download it. So far I haven't installed a single thing they have offered because I already had something comparable or better.

Maybe one of these days ... ~smile~

Hi Mick Barker,
Unfortunately this version of the software does not support bootabled isc images, that's reserved for the home and pro versions. You can check out the main features and comparisons between the three vesions by following the link below:

I'm not surprised this doesn't have the ability to create bootable CD/DVDs because from everything I have read here AND on the developer's site, it's multimedia oriented rather than being a system oriented program.

Just a tip others may find useful: I always copy the info and description of the Giveaway program before I download it, copy the registration info if there is registration info in the "readme", and then go to the developer's site and copy its url and any other helpful information given on the program and its use that I find on developer site. and save it as a text document.

I keep all my text files for GAOTD progs I've downloaded in a folder for GAOTD progs (making GAOTD info easy to find quickly when I need it).

Often this has proven very useful later when I've been working with a program and needed to find out whether it could do something I wanted, or needed more info on how to get the program to do something I wanted.

#13, I don't know how long you've been coming to GAOTD, and if you're fairly new to the site, then others should be more understanding about your confusion regarding the downloading, activation, and registering processes.

Did you see the instructions in the "readme"? ALWAYS read the "readme" first after downloading, before running ANYTHING, because activation steps vary with the programs downloaded. Although most people already have a habit of overlooking "readme" files, with GAOTD, the "readme" files contain VITALLY IMPORTANT ACTIVATION & REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS.

With this particular GAOTD, you run activate first, then run setup file, and after setup, AND launch the program itself, and that is all you have to do for this one to activate and register.

When I ran the program for the first time, and checked the "about" icon in upper righthand corner, it shows the program registered to GAOTD with 1 user license and 1 year of updates indicated in the registration information.

When you follow instructions in the "readme" that comes with every Giveaway download, it actually is rare to have problems with registering a program. Out of many programs I've downloaded and installed from GAOTD, there have only been a few that presented problems with activation and registration provided of course that you follow the instructions in the readme. (most disappointing recent failure to recognize its own registration IMO, is HDD Observer, it never has recognized the GAOTD license number even the day it was offered! and I'd really hoped that problem would be corrected)

Again, ALWAYS read the "readme" first because instructions for different programs DEFINITELY may be different from instructions for other programs! For example, while many instruct you to run activate before setup, others may require you to run setup first before activate.

This downloaded and installed without any problem on both my XP desktop and Vista laptop.

Sometimes the Giveaway programs don't support Vista, but most DO support Vista.
Some of those that at first didn't work right with Vista, DID work right when I had them run under program compatibility mode for XP SP2.

Very few programs haven't supported Vista at all.(most recently Xtweak, which didn't support Vista and no Giveaway version was offered for Vista either, the "free" DTweak for Vista offered at the developer site was a disappointing crippleware of the paid DTweak program)

After an off day I was expecting to come here and find something new and cool. Instead we get a giveaway that was offered before but with fewer features. I guess that kills a lot of peoples incentive to "upgrade" their version. For those that missed the previous giveaway I guess you have nothing to lose. I won't try to review this one as you can read the comments before me. I would suggest you read posts 19 and 58. I think you can learn a lot from them. I also like post 56. Ashampoo is a fine alternative. Burning Studio 6 is completely free. But there is a catch. You will have to provide an email address to get the key for the program. They don't like email adresses like Hotmail, Yahoo, etc. After they get your emaill address that will give them the chance to email you offers of their other products (some may call it spam). But it's not that bad. They offer discount prices a lot of their software. I just got Burning Studio 8.0 for $9.99. I also purchased some of their other software which are quite good. Thank you GAOTD for the offer. We all love the site and the chance to get new software. We all greatly appreciate your efforts. I'm looking forward to this weekends games. Please no Realore repeats? I think most visitors have them already. Is there a chance you can get back with Alawar? They have some fine games.

I thought it is clear like water, that GAOTD probrams have NO updates/ NO support.

So i was wrong, seemingly it was not clear to everybody then? Though it is told in every single Readme.txt file that's inside every program GAOTD offers? It was told ALSO in the Readme.txt that was inside BURNAWARE on 24.3.2008.

Thanks for the freeware. It is great for a person who has nothing else to burn with,or who is intimidated by more options. However, for people who burn on a regular basis, I think they will find the scope too limited. There are even free apps thathave more bells and whistles.

It is nice of you and the owner to present this... by this is far to basic for my needs.

Keep up the good work.

#13: Please stop ranting. If you have no needed skills to install Gaotd programs according to the given orders, please don't accuse Gaotd or anybody else but yourself for it. Learn how to install programs into a computer correctly according to given orders.

This program is able to do what it promises. The basic burning jobs are handled faster and simplier than with Nero and EMC for example. But the functions are limited, so if you are in need of more "exotic" features, then you'd be happier with some other program.

Metador, it does support Bootable Files/images. I checked and verified this. I have installed and ran this program, it is a good burner that is light on resources, it is for sure a good back-up burner. Personally I use Ashampoo Burning Studio v.2008 8.03 Edition. It is Ten times better than Nero anyday.

A common practice when GAOTD offers a new version of a previous give away, is to uninstall the older version before downloading and installing the newer one. Which is a wise practice. Commenter #2 pointed out that today’s GAOTD BurnAware Express was not a newer version of the GAOTD offered on March 24, 2008 but a different product, which was BurnAware Home Edition version 1.2.9

I’m one of those who installed that program on 3/24. When I opened the program and accessed the “About” this is what was written:

BurnAware v. 1.2.9 Home Edition was a GAOTD the About shows

“This Product is Registered to
Giveawayoftheday

Single User License
1 Year Free Upgrades”

I forgot about that little perk GloryLogic (the developer) tossed in of free upgrades for a year. So naturally I checked it out right away. Things did not exactly work out as I was led to believe:

“Version 2.0 is available for download.
http://www.burnaware.com

If you are registered user please contact BurnAware Support for a new key.
Specify your order number or your license key or email used in registration.
Giveawayoftheday license is not valid for v2.0 and higher!”


Very nice eh? If this is how GloryLogic, the Developer, honors its commitments I can’t even imagine about how much support anyone will get for any of their other products, or for that matter how well they’ll perform under scrutiny.

(Under different circumstances this topic would be better addressed in the GAOTD forums. However since this discovery fell on the same day another GloryLogic program is on the table I felt it also appropriate to mention here)

#19 thanks for the tip :) I downloaded the free version instead of this one since the only difference is probably the registration scheme. if free software gets bought off, someone probably thought its a good base to begin with and build on top of that for a commercial product, although this company didn't build anything much.

this company isn't the only one selling the same thing in 3 different flavors.. (hint: Vista :) and it isn't the first one to charge people for something that's originally free...

Also the simple interface is awesome, ni digging to find things

Sorry, but this is thumbs down in my book! Why come back with the bottom line software? I think it's bad marketing & not a good way to attract new customers.
With better freeware available, why this one? Or with what I'd bet most of us already have (something better), this is a straight up pass in my book.
Only a good download for those who don't have a disk burning program.

The "About" page says we get free upgrades for 1 year!
For 99% of all people, this version provides all burning features needed. Very straight forward interface. Much simpler to use than Roxio, Nero, etc which become more & more bloated with crap they call "new & improved" features with every release.
I give this one two thumbs up!

First off, it's true that for everybody having downloaded (back in March) the Home Edition, this offer isn't a big deal really since it lacks two key features.

Another thing should be pointed out yet - something not without any impact on the company's reputation, I guess some stuff to ponder on in general.
Let's recall, BurnAware Home Edition v1.2.9 came with the announcement of "1 Year Free Upgrades". (The About screen admits of absolutely no doubt about that.)

You won't believe what they tell you when - in Home Ed. v1.2.9 - you click just one line upwards (Check for Update):

"Version 2.0 is available for download.
http://www.burnaware.com
If you are registered user please contact BurnAware Support for a new key.
...
Giveawayoftheday license is not valid for v2.0 and higher!"


I am very much inclined to think that to rename a company (formerly GloryLogic) might be the wrong way to augment the number of customers as long as severe failures like this cannot be kept off from public attention.
Isn't it a bit like Russia's famous "Potemkin villages"?!

Software isn't that bad if you have need of a disk burner. It's light & does most of what the average home user would need. Though there are better options, including a couple free ones with more features, this is decent enough.
Now, if you already have a good one that works for you then this isn't something I'd install. I have a full, paid version of Nero 7.10.12 and Roxio 10.1 that cane with my computer so this would actually be a downgrade for me.
For this reason, I'm passing! i do agree, however, that they should have brought back their home version instead of this one which is their bottom line software!

I gave this program a 'thumbs up' Why, Because it does exactly what it says. The GUI is very clean (until StarBurn). Yes it is limited in functionality but its also a very small footprint program without all the bells and whistles. You can 'COPY' CD's & DVD's. HOW? just make a CD/DVD ISO image first and then burn it! Thats what other pgms do anyway when you only have one CD/DVD burner! Just means you have to perform the step instead of the software.
To #13, if you are so 'frustrated' why keep coming back? Your comments don't help anybody! I actually downloaded the 'trial' version from the developers website and it installed as a registered copy when I ran the 'activate' pgm first. Maybe #13 didn't read the readme?
As far as support, I have on several occasions reported issues directly to the developers and they have all responded and in cases where upgrades were needed, they have provided new registration numbers. The support/upgrades issue is with the GAOTD team not necessarily the developers. Don't 'bitch' here, email the developer instead!!! Maybe some of you should try writing software yourself before being so critical! If you want real 'FREE' software, try LINUX there is all sorts of FREE 'Open Source Software' available.

in response to Belgian dude (post#19) the software that comes with a new system or cd/dvd burner are 99% of the time "trail" versions with limited functionality. From my experience the "free" trail versions of Nero cause more problems than its worth, if you chose not to buy Nero after the trail Nero will disable(make your burner invisible to your pc) to try to force you to buy their product(I see this a lot at my office, we update/buy new pc's every 6 months or so) and you have to downlad a special tool to remove Nero because the included uninstall prog DOESN'T actually unistall Nero completely.Nero's website even tells you as much.
This program isn't that bad( I have the full version of Burnaware) and you're right there are better free programs with better features ...but if you buy a program I'd buy Convert X..easier to use and faster

I love the CD/DVD Burning software! Please keep them coming especially later on in the year when my grown son gets his own computer! Thanks GAOD!!! I look forward to seeing your offers everyday!
I would also love to see some programs for making your own wallpapers for websites and easy graphics/animation software.

Remember people, not everyone has all the programs you do! And not everyone likes the ones you do, etc. Don't bad-mouth a giveaway just for those selfish reasons, others may need it or like it a lot! Free programs aren't always easy to find, so give a little slack in criticisms.
Good program, & I for 1, needed it! My other 3 burners fail to recognize when I have a disc in the drive, & this worked great! I do have 1 other that works MOST of the time, but can't always be counted on to work, which means I need this 1. Thanks very much!:)

@Alex #27:
Nothing wrong with 'Free' Alex,

but how about 'Free and better' (like more options)

For example CDBurnerXP is very simple, has a nice forum where you will be helped, you can install whenever you like, you get all the upgrades and has more option.
No one forces you to take whatever freeware (that's right it's free too), but the same is true for this GAotD.
Just 'Free' is no criterium at all, and shouting that around is just plain stupid.
