Recently I've been setting up a new system with applications and I realized just how many of them are freeware these days - and really don't compromise much at all.
I'm interested in what people are still happy to pay for rather than go for the freeware alternatives. So , list your recommendations (other than MS office of course) for the best way to spend £50 (together with things that you are truely amazed at being freeware)
could be interesting.... Is Win7 forcing anyone to actually BUY apps again?
I'll spend the money when I have to, not before, which also means a new printer and scanner, who knows what else. You're looking at hundreds of # in new hardware, every time MS upgrades their OS. It's a real racket.
But we haven't heard from folks who have good freeware with Win 7, which is what this was about.
My choices, when I had to get Win7, of course, would be Firefox and Thunderbird, Foxit Reader, VLC Media Player, Avast or Avira A-V, Open Office. Most of my utilities are already free, just need updating. In other words, what I'm using now.
