    I saw the link on the MSDN page, and gave it a shot. Telerik has some other stuff that they are giving away, if you are looking for a tracer, or more refactoring support.

    Ha.  I was just using that download a few hours ago to test the latest preemptive Obfuscator output.

    @davewill: I've never understood why people use obfuscators. Is is that you just don't want people cutting and pasting bits of code out of your Apps, or what?

    i think they did a good job, although i only really use it as a documentation aid for unfamiliar api. i like the formatting and it generates high quality output. free is always good.

    @JoshRoss:I worked at a company that made software used for the police/security industry.  They insisted on using obfuscators regardless of the facts behind what the obfuscator actually did. 

    Sometimes, they are used to placate management, and as such are quite good at that that purpose.

    @JoshRoss: There is some history with other entities (before my time) that mandates it.  I'm not at liberty to speak about it.

    @JoshRoss: Having recently obfuscated an application, I tried several de-compilers including the one that comes with Resharper and Telerik. They are all written in WPF, and will certainly benefit in the speed enhancements in the forthcoming .NET 4.5 version, hence reflector is still the best speed-wise.

    I have worked for the Police, and as aforementioned, obfuscation is mandatory in establishing a level of confidence in whatever you are writing. In some ways, I hope WinRT can introduce something that assists developers in protecting their IP.
