Free Software

Here are my personal picks for the best free Windows software:

Web Browser

Music

For Musicians

Office

  • LibreOffice – Free version of Microsoft Office. Recommended by me over OpenOffice which keeps crashing.

Video

Security

Utilities

  • 7-zip – expand and compact files, put multiple files into one container for emailing.
  • Sumatra PDF – Small open source PDF reader.
  • FoxIt Reader – read PDFs without all the Adobe spyware. Are they starting to charge? Is this a trial version? If so, I’ll look for some other free reader.

The above are or were some of my favorites. Some great software gets worse over time, ads spam, stops working, etc. Be sure to scan for malware.   Here are a few lists you can check for other great free software.

  4. Audacity is pretty good indeed, although Reaper is apparently even better with only a minimum charge for the licence – $60. Not much compared to, say, Cubase.
