"Free Software"
( Is it any good?)

Actually, yes. And no. Much of it is born out of simple needs that clever programmers spent the time to fill. (And some of it is horrid, buggy, and hard-to-use; but that's the minority). I like free software, and here are some links to sites that provide it. Enjoy! (Oh, and run a virus-scan on any and everything you download, whether free or not)

http://www.portablefreeware.com/ From the site: "This site is dedicated to the collection and cataloguing of freeware that can be extracted to any directory and run independently without prior installation. These can be carried around on a memory stick / USB flash drive, or copied / migrated from PC to PC via simple copying of files. Hence the term portable freeware."
