Introduction

I have created a Best of Free Windows Software DVD of free, open source software that is distributed for free. It is intended for NCF members on dial-up who are using Windows.

If you would like a free copy of the DVD you can usually pick one up at the offices of National Capital FreeNet, #206-1305 Richmond Road, Ottawa, Ontario K2B 7Y4, during office hours.

Sorry, due to the cost, postal problems and other issues I don't ship disks.

If you have a high-speed internet connection then you can download the applications listed here directly from the home websites.

Please don't feel that you have to install everything on the DVD. I am a big fan of keeping PCs, especially ones running Windows, as light as possible. Just install what you want to use. Once you are done with your DVD, do pass it onto your friends!

Note that I also supply Linux DVDs, too!

The remainder of this page will provide a description of what is on the DVD, in alphabetical order by the file name. I have included links to my own reviews of the software and also links to the application's own home page so you can locate instructions and other documentation.
