I figured I would create a page with some of the programs I use pretty often. They are all Free for the most part and some are even open source based.

The list below are some of the more popular programs I use and the list should continue to grow as time goes on. If you think a Program/Tool/Utility should be listed here send a simple feedback message on the contact page….

Open Office 4.1.1 (Apache owned) – If I remember correctly the original OpenOffice team left OpenOffice because of not liking how management was handling the project.

LibreOffice 4.35 –  If I remember correctly the original OpenOffice team left OpenOffice because of not liking how management was handling the project. They then created the LibreOffice (French for Free Office I think?) project. Both LibreOffice and OpenOffice is still being developed.
