There’s some great free and cheap software available today, so here’s my list of software I recommend
A free office suite that is Microsoft Office compatible and offers everything the average user could want.
Free virtualisation software that lets you run another operating system on top of Windows, Mac or Linux.
like iTunes for PDF documents. Sounds pretty uninspiring until you add in the ability to scan documents straight into the interface, tag and save in two simple steps.
Bittorrent client for Mac, Unix and Linux
free high quality web browser available on a wide range of platforms. Extendable through plugins. I use Foxmarks to synchronise my bookmarks across computers and operating systems.
A fast application launcher for Mac that does a lot more than just launch apps.
a free file sharing replacement available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
