Pros & Cons:

39 applications included, many on Gizmo's list.
Very large download, but for a $20 donation they'll send you 2 disks. Cannot be updated.

Our Review:

OpenDisc offers for free, a wonderful collection of 39 software products you need to run a PC, including the latest version of OpenOffice. Many of these freebies substitute admirably for expensive commercial products. There is Abi Word as an alternative to MS Word, LibreOffice for MS Office, Thunderbird for Outlook, The Gimp for Adobe Photoshop, 7-zip for WinZip and many, many more.

This is an extraordinary collection of software. Do note, though, that the full ISO download is 1.16GB. (If you have a slow connection they will send you 2 disks for a donation of $20). The downside is that you are stuck with 39 apps which cannot be updated.

On its programs section, you can click on a category, then select specific programs and be directed to the individual program websites.
