well one thing is freedownloadmanager seems to be a pretty generic name. might i suggest changing the name of this project to something more unique? (=
I agree with this.
The first time I heard about FDM (several years ago), I was going to dismiss it as just another download manager such as "Internet Download Manager" which was crap. That time, my favorite was Mass Downloader which I had been using for several years. Still, I love to experiment and consequently have an opinion on things, so I decided to try out FDM. And boy, was I surprised!
Older versions of FDM were a little less feature-ful when compared to Mass Downloader, so I didn't switch to it completely, but since version 2.x, FDM has replaced MD on all my systems and my friend's systems too. I've become quite an FDM evangelist since then. It's one of the first apps I install on a new system.
Long story, but what I'm trying to say is that if I wasn't the experimenting types, I'd never have downloaded a product that has "Free" and its purpose making up the whole name of the product. Free Video Encoder? No, thanks. Free Music Player? Nah. Free Operating System? LOL, No way.
Shall we have a thread where people can suggest some new names for FDM? If we all like and agree on a good one, maybe we can ask the developers to consider changing the name!
