Another collection, rather nicely organised all on one page. And I seem some apps listed that I have not seen before. Going to check them out...

Another great list, thanks! Last time I did a fresh install on my home PC I've changed just about everything over to freeware, there are some great free software out there. It's fun to sift through everything to find the real gems that one likes.

You are welcome! I keep most of these apps on my 4 Gb Flash Disk and every time I have to do a new install, I just copy all of those to the new computer and install from there.

It is possible today to have only Windows XP (or Vista ..Shudder) as your only piece of paid software. Everything else on your system is freeware.

I do this in a work/office environment as well, and it makes it tons easier than bothering with software licenses and installation keys.

I have seven computers in our office running only Windows XP and freeware. That includes our POS and Financial software.

oh, ooops... some of them do have some licensed software that I got Free from Giveaway of the day.

Windows only: Freeware application DExposE2 is a clone of Mac OS X's Expose feature for Windows XP and Vista. Aside from the basic Expose features, which we've seen from a lot of clones in the past, DExpose2 features a handful of extra features like interactive previews, hot corners, multi-monitor support, and more. If you like the look and feel of Expose but have never found a good substitute for your Windows PC, the freeware DExposE2 may be the best available. DExposE2 comes in portable and installable flavors, so you can check it out with a quick download and no install. Hit the [link above] for a video of DExposE2 in action.
Download it here...

In this review from ZDNet UK we are presented with a list of the World's most Annoying Software.

http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/software/0,1000001048,39419834-1,00.htm

I post it here because many of us use these "Free" programs (not all of them are free).

But all of them are problematic in some way or another. You should familiarise yourself with what the pitfalls of these programs are... and why they are not really "Free"! ;)
