Got a Windows PC? Part 1 of "Free software for Windows"

I recently found an article outlining several programs that virtually eliminates the need to use purchased or pirated software. Ya, and I don’t mean a simple Excel replacement, but it’ll be on the list.

 

  1. The first listing is actually a bundle of applications from Mozilla. Most of you out there are familiar with Firefox (like myself), but have you seen what else they have? So Firefox is your feature rich web browser with TONS of extensions and plug-ins.  http://www.getfirefox.com Next would be Thunderbird. No, not the marionettes but the one that replaces Microsoft Outlook. Again it’s full of features AND works with all if not most web based internet services out there. http://www.mozilla.org/thunderbird/ The third application in this bundle is Sunbird. Sunbird is a calendar application the replaces Outlooks Calendar feature. Again it’s easy to use and apparently easy to share dates with your friends. http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/sunbird/
  2. The replacement for Microsoft Word is Abiword. Abiword is small which means is runs quickly, open and edit Word or WordPerfect files. http://www.abisource.com
  3. For the gamers out there, there is True Combat: Elite. TC:E is a third person combat game with great graphics, great game play and the best price tag of all, FREE! http://www.truecombatelite.net/
  4. For my last suggestion, I read that Gaim let’s you sign in to MSN, Yahoo! IM and AOL Instant Messenger simultaneously. Sign into all services within one little program. http://gaim.sourceforge.net

Stay tuned for the continuation of the Free Software list for Windows Users!
