Extreme Power Tools — The Swiss Army Knife
|Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction.|
- Albert Einstein
Some of the best written and most useful Windows software you can find anywhere.
- Robin Keir
Extreme Power Tools began with a forced migration from Unix to DOS/Windows. The objective was to replace the 'arsenal' of wobbly Microsoft utilities with software which better served the needs of the user, the developer, and the administrator.
Extreme Power Tools was ported to new environments as the need arose: a customised version for Windows was written for and sold on enterprise licence to a Scandinavian telecom company.
Extreme Power Tools is a 'systems development system' - it is not targeted for end users but for fellow developers. All of the utilities were written out of a need for them and not with an eye on the market place. The proof of their value has always been apparent: projects where they are used invariably complete before their deadlines, not afterwards.
Extreme Power Tools conquered the world in 1998 when it was featured in two successive issues of Chris Pirillo's Lockergnome. Since then, interest in the product and in the software methodology used at Radsoft has been nothing short of hysteric. Windows Magazine voted Extreme Power Tools one of the Internet's ten best downloads.
