Links to Free Software

Over the years I have discovered many free software applications that are just as good as any bought ones (often Open Source - meaning the source code is public).

Here is the list:

Open Office

A professional Microsoft Office style suite of applications. Amazingly compatible with Microsoft Word and totally free.

The Gimp

Great for photo and picture editing


Plays any video media you throw at it! AVI, DivX etc.


Free FTP Client


Not pretty but a great compression utility - ZIP's, RAR's etc.

DA Player

1080 HD/BluRay player - plays loads of formats
