FREE software replaces expensive programs

26 replies
I know there's the "all-in-one" thread, but this is just a link and I didn't want it to get lost because that topic is pretty big by now.

The site below lists 50 programs of various kinds, from accounting to database to video and graphic editing. Even a PDF creator. All free, because they're open source. Check it out, especially if money is tight these days.

    The only problem with your theory is this thread will disappear almost instantly on the WF since it is a busy forum.

    I'd highly recommend you add this to the All-In-One thread, people hunt those down, and this is a great addition to the thread.

    Kansas, true about that (I just found this on page 3; actually, not too bad for this board).

    Still, if someone was searching on, for instance, "open source", they would find this topic where I don't think they would with the all-in-one.

    For that matter, I don't know why the all-one-stuff isn't a sticky.

    However, I'll be adding that url to the "biggie" shortly. Meanwhile, I'm glad folks here are finding this link useful.

    Thanks for the link. I already use Inkscape and I will check out some of the others.

    I know Gimp is supposed to be a good substitute for Photoshop, but I cannot get some aspects of it to work. Inkscape is not as "deep" as Gimp/photoshop, but at least I can work with it. Just drawing a simple, colored filled rectangle (in Gimp) is a hassle with several steps that I still have not gotten ironed out yet. Maybe I'm just illiterate in the program. Not user friendly.

    Thanks again!

    Wow, this is a very nice list. Thanks a lot for posting it.

    Although some of these open source software programs may not be as feature-rich as some of the paid-versions. However, depending on your uses, many times they will fit the bill nicely.

      Excellent list, hadn't heard of most of those except Gimp, Open Office and PDF Creator. We are really spoilt for choice now as internet marketers. What would be really cool is a piece of cloud software especially for internet marketers, like a productivity suite, where we can do everything from without leaving the site or "dashboard".
