Free Software List

I guess today I’m feeling a little more techy since my posts are more about tech toys and software. It doesn’t really matter if you are an EMR user or not, but this software list can save you a bunch of money personally and in using an EMR. Not to mention implement some good security controls.
I ran accross this list at a blog by a modest construct

Here’s the ones I’ve tested and suggest:
Firefox
Trillian
FileZilla
Bittorrent
AdAware
SpyBot
CDBurnerXP Pro
WinAmp(I can’t believe this one’s still around)
Media Player Classic
VideoLan
Quicktime Alternative
Real Alternative
The GIMP
OpenOffice.org

SpyBot and AdAware are essential for good security and PC cleaning. I need to look through the anti virus programs on the list, but we have a site license for Norton and so it hasn’t been a good priority.

My favorite money saver is GIMP. It is nearly as good as Photoshop, but FREE!
