Our Favourite Free PC Software
With so much good free software that does the basics, it is often hard to justify the purchase of commercial software for the extra bells and whistles that you may never use. The list below is just our local experiences. Up to date additions to this list are welcomed. Unfortunately some good free software eventually gets infected with spam or commercialised and needs to be removed from the list. Let us know if you spot any instances of this.
