Open Source Software

It’s entirely likely that you have found this page because you’re an Android user and further curious about what I have to offer on my site. But if that’s not the case, then you found this page by searching for free and open-source software. Either way, you’re definitely here because you want to know how to get more out of your software! On this particular page, I aim to inform you of the best open-source or freeware software that I know of for your Windows or Linux PC (and possibly Apple).

NOTICE: My primary background is in 20 years of Windows and DOS, whereas my Linux knowledge is much more recently acquired.
