Microsoft is very well known for charging hundreds of dollars for their flagship products like Office and Windows, but did you know that they offer more than 150 programs for free? I had no clue it was that much until this site put together a list
of all the software. Some of the things on the list are from the Window XP PowerToys
and I use several of those. Some of the other downloads I had never heard of but could be extremely useful like SyncToy
. It will help copy, move, and synchronize files with digital cameras, e-mail, cell phones, portable media players, camcorders, PDAs, and laptops.
So the next time you are looking for some free software to do something maybe you should check Microsoft first, if you are running Windows that is. Even if you aren’t looking for some specific software you should still checkout the list because there are some pretty cool ones on there.
