You know I love it when I come across a freeware program that is so excellent I actually get goose bumps. It just shows you how boring my life really is. Anyway, I love it when freeware exceeds my expectations and actually exceeds any commercial program I’ve ever tried. And when the freeware program is created by a programmer who is actually MORE verbose than I, it really sends my heart a’soaring. I know you’re giggling and thinking I’m just being hyperbolic – that no one in this world, not even the folks at that other Windows newsletter, who can drone on and on about Dropbox for 15 pages, are more verbose than I am. But you’re so wrong. The developer of Freemake Free Video Converter may well be the most verbose person on Earth. He makes me sound laconic.
Here is what the developer has to say about his very own Freemake Free Video Converter:
