Linux

Lenny, the Lubuntu mascot

Since I have been using Linux-based computer operating systems and you could be too, for free!

Right now I am using the Lubuntu operating system. Linux is free, very stable, has tens of thousands of free applications to do everything you need and doesn't run Windows viruses or spyware.

For information on free and open source software for Windows have a look at the Windows Open Source/ Freeware Project. I also have a Best of Free Windows Software DVD for users on dial-up who can't download huge files themselves.

For a list of recommended free software for all operating systems see the Free Software List.
