Free Software

Posted by Mark Mitford (editor) on August 6, 2004 08:02 AM in Software .

free software for windows PCs

No, I'm not talking illegal copies of programs here.

Roger Ramsey at Sudhian has written a great article about using Freeware (free software, with no limiting of features, no hidden spyware downloads etc) to replace all paid software on a PC (except the operating system).

The best thing about the article is a full list (with links to the author's website to download) of almost 50 free software programs (divided into core, audio, video, graphics, DVD mastering, internet and productivity categories).

Personally I won't be making a PC with all this software but it will save me buying two copies of some software to use on my laptop, and I will be able to replace some shareware software I need to pay for soon with free software.

Thanks Roger!

Using Windows XP for the operating system of the "FreewarePC" makes the author of the article automatically lose.
