10 Cool Freebies

PCWorld recently published an article on 101 free applications, and I was amazed at how many good ones were left out. Below you will find my list of 10 freebies that I believe are worth mentioning.

1. Firefox

Duh. If you want to read one of my articles on this awesome browser, just type "Firefox" into the search box above.

2. Google Page Creator

This wonderful web-based web page editor has failed to make headlines, but not because of a failure to impress or a lack of features. Making a website has never been easier, and hosting is free. Want to see an example?

3. YouOS

This one has been getting a lot of press lately, and its feature-laden yet simple interface and piles of free applications make it a winner of a web OS.

4. CCleaner

This registry tuner and disk dejunker works lightning fast, and the result is a lightning fast computer as well. Constantly updated, this application takes seconds to install and the results are wonderful.

5. Ares

Who said file sharing has to be difficult? This free application lets you share music, video, and more with hundreds of other users worldwide.

6. Alesti

This free web-based RSS reader works like a desktop application, allowing import/export of OPML files, reading summaries and full items, and linking to news pages.

7. Anvil Studio

This free MIDI music mixer allows easy creation of music tracks featuring hundreds of different instruments and with a very simple and easy-to-use interface.

8. AWIcons Lite

This eval version of an amazing icon editor is free and features almost Photoshop quality editing capabilities. Wonderful for creating icons of all sizes and bit depths.

9. Programmer's Notepad

For the programmer, nothing beats this application for quick and easy editing of almost any standard programming language's source code.

10. Blender

This popular 3D modeling program rises above the rest, even the expensive commercial applications such as Maya.

Yes it is pretty nice, but that was featured in PC World, so I left it out. Unfortunately I did forget:

1.5: Ubuntu 7.4

This spectacular Linux-based OS kicks Windows' butt, and future interface updates, like the Beryl project, combined with Dell's shipment of Ubuntu PCs, promise to make it a winner.
