Useful Free Software

For those of you who want to get some free software without breaking the law (i.e. illegally copying it), check out these links.

    A Microsoft Compatible Office Suite that can open and save Word, Excel and Powerpoint files.  It also comes with a Drawing program.  Has the ability to save files as PDFs.  It also allows you to save your presentations as Flash.
  • Free Serif Software
    Free versions of their Desktop Publishing, Drawing & Vector, Digital Imaging, 3D Design and Web Publishing software.
  • The Gimp
    The GNU Image Manipulation Program, a nice & free image editor.
  • Easy Office
    Another Free Microsoft Compatible Office Suite, this time from e-press.  This one has more programs including database, contact manager, zip program, calculator, etc., but isn't quite as polished as OpenOffice is.  (Note: EasyOffice is free for personal use only, but you must purchase a license for commercial use.  OpenOffice, however, is free for commercial and personal use.)
  • PuTTY
    A Free Win32 Telnet/SSH Client.  Also supports rlogin and raw mode.

That should get you started.  I've come across a lot of free programs, but these are the ones that seem to be the best quality and most useful.

I'll post more as I find them.

Free Software (obtained legally) is always nice.

Just a reminder, though. Feel free to contribute your links to free software, but please do not post links to pirated software or discuss pirating software here.

I just wanted to mention that right away before someone posts something like that forcing me to delete it.

Only 12 views.  I guess people don't like free software.  Or they assume free means cheap.

I've tried some of these and they are pretty good.  I especially like The Gimp.
