Ultimate Frugality – The Best Free Software For Windows.

As a result of my post the other day for the best free software for Macs, I got a few requests for free software for Windows users. And although I have not used a Windows machine in years, here is what I could come up with by looking around and asking friends who are Windows users. I am no Windows pro, so let me know if there is anything else that should be added to the list (or taken off)!

AbiWord
Edit Pad

GIMP
Paint.NET
Blender

    Don’t forget Google Reader for RSS. It is the greatest RSS reader out there. (and it is free too)

  4. Good post!

    I maintain a list of programs I use at my blog, if you’re interested. (Some are Open Source and compatible with Mac OS X and/or Linux, too.)

    It’s currently at 33.

    I use FileZilla too…very nice. But, like Chris said, don’t forget Google Reader. And, how about adding WordPress, phpBB, Google Analytic and SiteMeter under Blogging/HTML? I found them very useful.

  6. david says:

    Consider them added!
