I don't think I've written about Gizmo's Freeware (aka techsupportalert.com) before here, but I should have. It is my favorite (and, in my opinion, the best) free software site out there. If you've never visited it, you should. If you have, you know what I'm talking about. It is not a megasite with every freeware program known to man, so you don't have to sift through pages and pages of junk. It is simply a repository of the best freeware available categorized, reviewed and culled to the top free programs in each category.
I have yet to try this completely (primarily because of my dependence on WordPerfect and PowerPoint), but I am convinced you could survive without ever paying for software again by simply relying on this site. And the pickers, choosers and reviewers know what they are talking about.
I have found numerous gems that I use regularly. I found my screen capture utility, pdf reader/editor and writer, photo editor, anti-virus software, cleanup utilities, and much, much more. And now that there is a free Bible study software category, I feel compelled to recommend this site. I promise you won't be disappointed.
Note: About the only thing I did not find here was free or open source Church multi-media software, but I do now know of such a program if you happen to need one.
