Free Software

Here are my personal picks for the best free Windows software:

Web Browser

  • Firefox, plus plug-ins:  Adblock Plus, Better Privacy, Download Statusbar, FireFTP, DownloadHelper.


For Musicians




  • 7-zip – expand and compact files, put multiple files into one container for emailing.
  • FoxIt Reader – read PDFs without all the Adobe spyware. Are they starting to charge? Is this a trial version? If so, I’ll look for some other free reader.

    Audacity is pretty good indeed, although Reaper is apparently even better with only a minimum charge for the licence – $60. Not much compared to, say, Cubase.

    SumatraPDF – love it. Dumped A-doe-bee reader a long time, years, ago.
