This software collection tries be the finest choice free software, rather than simply providing as many software titles as possible. All of the software on this list was individually chosen to try to meet the following goals:
- Provide high quality free alternatives to expensive software for Windows.
- Promote cross-platform computing and data sharing.
- Enable Windows users to transition to other operating systems.
You will find that every one of these software titles has been lovingly hand-crafted by experts. Although we favor software that is both free of charge and open source, some of the software may not be open source.
