Free Software

We list for you great software that’s available for free.

Free or Highly Discounted Software

I’ve been a fan of BitsDujour for years now. It’s my favorite site to purchase software at huge savings. Their all deals page often features something for free.

Of course, there’s always a price when something’s free. In BitsDujour’s case, 100% off software generally requires you to agree to be contacted by BitsDujour and/or the developer. Of course, you can always grab free or discounted software and immediately unsubscribe from further emails. But it’s a small price to pay for great software.

Why pay full price for software if you can get it through BitsDujour at 50%, 60%, and up to 100% off? Be aware that oftentimes highly discounted software is a prelude to a new version number that likely won’t be covered by the current purchase. Check the details of all sales closely. But developers often discount their software just prior to a new version release. This isn’t the case with every offer – but I would say it’s the case with most of them.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that. It’s like buying last year’s model car when the new ones come out. They’re still new cars with new car warranties. They’re just not the current model. You can get some great deals buying a new 2013 car when the 2014 versions come out.

Of course, sometimes it’s the exact opposite. Developers will offer good discounts when releasing a new version. They benefit from the exposure while you benefit from getting their newest software version and a good discount. They’re hoping you got a good enough deal, or that you love the software so much, you’ll tell all your friends.

I never thought I’d recommend a site. But I can’t keep BitsDujour to myself. I’d be doing you a disservice if I didn’t recommend BitsDujour for highly discounted and the occasional free software.

I placed this in the Free category because they generally have something free every day.

Microsoft Security Essentials

Use Microsoft Security Essentials to guard against viruses, spyware, and other evil software. It provides real-time protection for your home or small business PCs.

Microsoft Security Essentials is free and designed to be simple to install and easy to use. It runs quietly and efficiently in the background so you don’t have to worry about interruptions or making updates.

If you run Windows as your operating system, you don’t need to spend money on fancy virus and/or spyware protection. Microsoft Security Essentials uses very little resources as it runs quietly in the background. It integrates updating with Windows Update so you can be certain your PC is always up-to-date with virus definitions.

We could make money recommending paid virus and spyware protection options. But we choose to alert you to this adequate and free alternative to paying for protection.
