This is a collection of freeware and/or open source software that I have found useful. Please bear in mind that the old adage holds true, ‘nothing in life is for free’.

While all of the software listed here is available for free some of these sites will ask for your support in terms of cash donations or helping by participating in the project. Please do what you can to support these developers, as you will see, they are providing superb software for all of us to benefit from so please give what you can.
