Hi! I'm a student Vietnam, I also like linux, can I add my blog is not he?
point and click is for people who don't want to bother too much with learning how to use a computer and just want to use it. In other words most of the world's population... if you want to call them all dummies that's up to you. :)
hi liked ubuntu but I'm a bit daft I think I like the point and click in windows for dummy's
Hi, sorry I don't get down here much. I guess I'm just a Firefox guy.
Hi, have a good day!

Freeware I recommend
Get Opera on a stick!
Don't get winamp. Get Media Monkey! Much easier to bulk-edit ID tags, much easier to organise your music. It also rips and burns audio CDs much better than crappy windows media player, which takes forever "preparing" files. Did I mention it's free?
Audacity - multitrack audio editor
Open source audio editor and multitracker.
LAME Aint an Mp3 Encoder
The original MP3 encoding software website.
WavPack - hybrid audio compression
High quality audio compression.
7-zip - archiver
Zip program that gives better compression than any others. Supports zip, rar, gz, tar, and others, plus its own superior 7z format. On top of that it can open and edit iso files without mounting them!
Create PDFs out of any document or graphic file using a virutual "PDF Printer". Very easy to use.
CDBurnerXP Pro - CD and DVD burning software
Easy, quick and full-featured CD/DVD burning software. Will also burn any ISO to any disk, and create an ISO file from any compilation you make. AND... it's free.
The smallest, fastest, easiest graphics viewing and editing program I've come across.
The Gimp - Gnu Image Manipulation Program
GNU Image Manipulation Program. Open source image editor available for Linux/BSD, Windows and Mac. Even more features, some that even Photoshop doesn't have such as gif animation.
Nvu - web editor
Free web page editor - does most of what Dreamweaver does plus a bit more besides, and it's free - very handy...
PSPad - text/code editor
Free text editor for coders. Very full-featured with loads of online resources, no matter what you are coding - PHP, HTML, C++, whatever. Or just like writing plain text documents.
Open Office suite
Open Source office suite. It does pretty much everything that MS Office does - except drain your wallet of funds of course.
Spybot - Search and Destroy anti-spyware
A great Spyware and Malware detection and removal program with lots of useful system tools for Windows.
Useful Windows cleanup utility. Free up disk space, check and fix registry errors, and other useful tools.
A highly rated free anti-virus program
Another highly rated free anti-virus program
Free Antivirus, anti spyware and anti rootkit software
Comodo Firewall Pro
The best Firewall software available - and it's free. Comodo also make free antivirus and anti-spyware software.
Trillian - multi-protocol chat program
Connects you to MSN, AIM, ICQ and Yahoo Messenger so you can chat to your friends cross-platform all in one chat client.
Pidgin - multi-protocol chat program
Like Trillian, but connects to you lots more instant messenger services for free: Jabber/XMPP/GoogleTalk, Bonjour, Gadu-Gadu, QQ, SILC, SIMPLE, Zephyr and more. It's also available for Linux, BSD and other platforms whereas Trillian is Windows only.
A suite of programs you can put on any USB drive and run them on any Windows computer you plug the USB drive into. Huge range of useful apps.
