    After reading some reviews -good bad and ugly- about this free program I am curious what some of you experts have to say about this one .
    What's your opinion?

    Do you think it's worth to give it a try, or would it be too much annoyance in exchange for the benefits you receive from it?
    What about resources? Is it that demanding for (f.e.) my P4 2.6 Ghz (512mb ram) system?

    If you'd like to make any other comments, be invited.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    regards,
    slammer

    ps meanwhile I'll start trying it anyway ;) , but I am really curious about opinions from the people at Wilders

    I think it shows promise. It can be annoying at times but they are constantly improving it. As far as resources go, combined for the service and the process are about: virtual size is 135 to 140 meg, peak private runs around 40 meg and peak working runs 40 to 45 meg.... Pretty much a hog but they constant improving in this area. CPU time with the initial v2 release ran about 6 % while the latest version is running 1 to 2 %....


    HTH.....
