People often ask what program we recommend for solving this or that problem, for finding out about our computers configuration or for providing our computer with protection against all nasties that are always making our lives that little bit harder. For the most part we compare software in both functionality, ease of use, price and feedback from others using these products.

Naturally free software for home use rates pretty highly with us, especially when the software provider has a reasonalbly priced edition for office. We like to support software providers who provide quality products for both the office and  home market. Below we have linked to the home free editions, if you are looking for the office or enterprise editions please go directly to the providers web site.
