20 Fantastic & Free Programs

PC World has an article on 20 fantastic and free open source programs. PC World groups the offerings in Graphics, Multimedia, Utilities, and Miscellaneous.

The article talks about several great programs, including Filezilla, which is one of my favorites. Filezilla is the easiest, yet full featured, FTP program that I have ever used. I highly recommend it.

The article also makes some good recommendations such as MediaCoder, which convert the format on just about any media file there is; Audacity, which is the most sophisticated, yet free, audio recording program you will find; and 7-Zip, which gives you many more “zipping” options than does the utility built into Windows.

I encourage you to check out the article. I bet you will find a powerful yet free program that suits your needs.
