Excluded MS Window XP, I can pay nothing to do everything in my computer.
(Well, If you don’t wanna pay for OS, you can use Fedora linux or Mandrake linux.)
This is list of my favorite free programs to use in WinXP.
1 OpenOffice – It’s support Thai and free for commecial use and can save as pdf file.
2 K-Lite Mega Codec Pack – It’s support most of audio and video file in the world.
3 Firefox & Thunderbird – Why I have to use IE & Outlook while I can use them for free.
4 CDex – For convert wav (audio cd) to mp3 or ogg. It’s great and free.
5 FastStone Image Viewer & FastStone Photo Resizer – Don’t have to use ACDSee if you’re not an expert.
6 Primo PDF – To create PDF file in this small and free program from any printable file type.
7 Daemon Tool – To mount cd & dvd image.
8 ZoneAlarm – The best free firewall in the world.
9 MP3 Cutter – Can cut and merge mp3 file. Best for create mp3 ringtone.
10 7 Zip – Forget winzip and winrar if you try this.
11 Winamp – A free version of this program is enough for me.
12 Avast Home Antivirus – Just register in their website, it will allow you to use for 18 months. After that just register again.
They are lot of free programs in the world. Just try something new and don’t think that only program from big company is the best, you will save your money and you can use that money to keep upgrade your computer.
