What's your favourite Freeware, OpenSource Progz?

Hey dear Ververs,

what are your favourite Freeware, OpenSource Programs (not only GFX)?

In Graphics
VERVE (it even top Krita) - KRITA (OpenSource, it runs very fine in Ubuntu) and APOPHYSIS (Freeware?)

Office/Internet
LibreOffice (why I should use Microsoft Office?)
Keepass V1.x and Keepass-X for Linux* (very good Safe vor passwords, I really know only my master-password,)
Firefox (the best Internetbrowser for me, I use ist since October 2004 - 10 Years!!!!! One of my first OpenSource Software in action)

POTPLAYER (Windows only) - better like VLC Player and PotPlayer is from the same Korean-Devolper of the KMplayer - but KMPLAYER is since some years full of adware

Games - I don't play Games since some years, but BZFLAG also for free, was very funny for me :ob

Some other Tools for Windows
7z / 7zip (Windows only) ... the best tool for zip, rar and other archive file formats
HDD Tune, checking HDDisks
Prime95 nice tool for checking CPU or RAM* Errors

Rescatux and/or Ultimate Boot CD (it include MEM86) - if you have serious Problems, e.g. booting - or RAM checking

OS
Linux Ubuntu & Lubuntu, Windows 7 I need only for Graphic-Tools :oops: :oops: :oops: and Lubuntu works fine for my very old Laptop, IBM T30 :ob :ob - Ubuntu I use as dualboot with my PC ....
my system: intel7 - 2600k, gtx 970, dualboot windows 7 64 bit / ubuntu 14.04 lts

Re: What's your favourite Freeware, OpenSource Pr

I can't say because i participate of yet 77 pages to promote this sort of thing! (only free or open source) ;)
But the more easy and serious/funny is maybe Chaoscope :beer:

Re: What's your favourite LowBudget, Freeware, OpenSource Pr

Hey, good topic, indeed!

Of course Verve right now :) And Gimp, VLC, Unity 3D, VirtualBox, XMplay, werkkzeug4..

I like to play games but don´t have much free time and I cannot remember good free game. Maybe some logic games like gomoku, chess, parking cars..
But what I can recommend to play is: Dear Esther. it is not a typical game and it takes only about 2,5hrs to complete but its atmosphere will persist inside you for looong time..

And Alan Wake (PC version) for example.

Re: What's your favourite LowBudget, Freeware, OpenSource Pr

Oh dear, don't start with games!!! :PP
There some stunning games out there F2P (free to play). I stumbled across warframe, tanki, stupid miniclip and that stuff...can eat up your time bitterly, but- dear me- it can be fun.
With great distance to everything else, my favorite free "toys" are Sculptris and Musagi. :D

Re: What's your favourite LowBudget, Freeware, OpenSource Pr

One Freeware lost my trust in the last time, thats FILEZILLA - it includes spyware, even on sourceforge :PP ... but now I use FireFTP ... great Firefox Plugin for linux & windows (in one compatible firefox-profile).
Uh thunderbird is also great, I never used outlook or other software ... - also since 2005 or 2004 I use Thunderbird. :ob
