After dumping acrobat reader totally from my system due to persistant lockups, I found "Foxit Reader" which does a brilliant job. Made me root around for other alternative software - quicktime alternative is great as well.

Moving on from that, I thought, I can't be the only one sick and tired of programs taking up hundreds of MB of hard disk space, installing bloatware and system hogging processes, spyware, trackware and such, and after investigating, stumbled upon this extensive list that some like minded individuals have put together.

I believe they are all freeware apps, but I could be wrong. I take no responsibility for any programs on this list, however I am fairly confident none of them smell icon_smile

Feel free to add any more to this list that aren't there - a huge thanks to Neowin members who assembled this lot:

Perhaps of most interest to writers is openoffice.org. I use it instead of paying out hundreds of dollars on M$'s office - I can't praise it enough, and totally FREE.

Found another link: http://www.pricelessware.org/thelist/index.htm

The Pricelessware list is a compilation of software collected through a yearly vote by the participants of the "alt.comp.freeware" newsgroup. It is a list of what people have voted as "the best of the best in Freeware".

The software listed here is commonly referred to as "Pricelessware", a term given with great respect and thanks to the authors of these programs for giving us such wonderful quality freeware programs.


Gets my vote thumbup

Thanks for the list Nicola and to all who put it together and as you said why pay several hundred dollars for MS office when you can get it for free? Plus it is way faster then MS

I'm using Comodo antivirus, which is a whole suite of useful tools. I love it.

For freeware, I like to go to Softpedia because each download is tested against spyware and malware. They also list any requirements your system needs beforehand, too.

Amazing list but am defintely a Word 2007 fan! What software do people use for scripts? BBC offers a free one but don't really like it. Paid for Sophocles and it is value. Any others?

After dumping acrobat reader totally from my system due to persistant lockups, I found "Foxit Reader" which does a brilliant job. Made me root around for other alternative software - quicktime alternative is great as well.

Moving on from that, I thought, I can't be the only one sick and tired of programs taking up hundreds of MB of hard disk space, installing bloatware and system hogging processes, spyware, trackware and such, and after investigating, stumbled upon this extensive list that some like minded individuals have put together.

I believe they are all freeware apps, but I could be wrong. I take no responsibility for any programs on this list, however I am fairly confident none of them smell icon_smile

Feel free to add any more to this list that aren't there - a huge thanks to Neowin members who assembled this lot:
