    I really like this program, but I don't want to pay for it. Any alternatives or a way to get it for free?

    It's less than thirteen bucks. You have got to be kidding.

    Well if I can find something for free, why pay for it?

    just drag the application to the trash? or run the uninstaller supplied w/the original software? apps like this are of truly limited value

    Well, preference files, font files, plist files, and all this other garbage is left behind.

    all the other garbage is normally less than about 100k in size and in locations you'll never see. the impact on your system is pretty much nil...unless you tend to install new apps and delete them fairly frequently, but i don't think very many people fit that bill
