I torture test and use a ton of software…some people might even call me a “geek” (what do they know?!?!). From apps for my Droid phone to software on my laptop and even some “cloud” technologies that link the two devices, I am always on the hunt for productive and useful software.
For many years I have used a lot of “freeware” and I have watched as “open source” software has become more and more sophisticated. MUCH of this software are products you can use in your office and at home…and often looks and acts like the original products (except that MOST of it is free or donation driven).
Here are a couple of links to get you started with open source software. I have used Inkscape, Open Office, Gimp, Firefox, Thunderbird, to name a few. Please email me back if you are using freeware or open source software…I am always interested in new ideas!
