As a long-term Mac user, i have installed demo software beyond count. Yours is one of the few that I've seen the worth in investing in.

It's one of those programs that I wonder how I lived without for so long. Before I was constantly clicking through directories every time I wanted to open, save or attach a file. Now I do almost everything in just a few clicks.
