Bulk Rename Utility Comments

License change

Negative Comment by krzysiu
about Bulk Rename Utility Mar 2016

Please note that recently developer removed earlier all versions and the changelog didn't show anything special. It was fishy, so I checked it and developer changed license for stricter. Because that change I can't use it anymore. I'm ok with the fact of different license - it's his software. But he did it in shady way and that's not good. Remember, when changelog is weirdly empty, then big things happen :)

The best feature of BRU is it supports unicode file/folder names. Though it has a strange interface and it takes some times to understand all things.

Most cluttered and unintuitive interface i have ever seen, although it is striaght forward. It had problems with accessing some specially weird named files on my HD. this is not for renaming your massive music collection.
