BusinessWeek recently published an article where they searched high and low for the most useful, free products available for the public on the Internet. We thought we would share with you some of the most useful products.
- Microsoft and Apple Alternative
If you are not a Windows and Mac fan, you should be a Linux-based Ubuntu fan then. The operating system when installed, is packed with a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation software, browser, e-mail, media player, and photo-editing software. You can save up to $200 on a Windows or a Mac operating system.
- Microsoft Office Alternative
Everyone knows Microsoft Office Suite can cost as high as $400! OpenOffice is free for all, and its is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms.
- Free Deleted File Recovery Software
Instead of spending thousands and thousands of dollars recovering deleted data, why not give Panda Recovery a try? It’s free and it can restore deleted data as far back as 11 years ago!
- Norton Antivirus Alternative
If you have a personal computer and you do not do much heavy surfing and downloading, AVG Anti-Virus Free is the next best option to Norton and it’s just as effective as the paid version. If you are thinking of going pro, it starts at a mere $53.
- Skype Alternative
Almost everyone who uses the internet knows about Skype and how it works and the billing charges it imposes for its additional features. I want to introduce you to Gizmo Project, a head-on competitor with Skype and it provides some unique features like voicemail and free calls to the landline or mobile phone of another Gizmo user.
