ken_cinder Posted August 10, 2007 Share Posted August 10, 2007 Ok, so I figured I would share and encourage the sharing of alternatives to oft bloated and costly software for (Usually) everyday use.Feel free to contribute to the list, I'll add it to this post. Just be sure to denote what the software is, and it's homepage. Windows 98/2k/XP ONLY! (I don't know anyone still using 95, ME counts as 98 and Vista only stuff is of no use to most people yet) Internet Browsers - Because Internet Explorer isn't Mozilla FirefoxOperaLynx - Text Browser Email Clients - Face it, Outlook Express has more holes than swiss cheese! Mozilla ThunderbirdAnything else here people? Eudora is no longer developed, taken over by the Mozilla team. FTP Clients - Because a standalone app does a better job FilezillaWinSCPFireFTP (Firefox plugin, requires Mozilla Firefox) Microsoft Office Alternatives (Can I say it any different? Didn't think so) Open Office Art Programs - Because Corel and PSP are great, but not FREE GIMPDrawPlus (I haven't used this, but it looks decent)PicasaIrfanView 3D Modeling/Animation - 3D Studio Max is THE best, bar none. But it's INSANELY EXPENSIVE! Google SketchUpAnim8orBlender Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
