Spring Break

Spring Break is coming soon and in a stream-of-consciousness kinda way this has me thinking about taking a break. If I had more time off I would think about vacation destinations, tropical paradise, airline tickets, lodging, money to pay for it, oh, I need to get taxes done by April 15, my niece has an accounting degree so maybe I can get her to do my taxes for free, what else is free, oh yeah, there is free software, how about someone compiling a list of the best free software.

This list has a variety of browsers and add-ons, email clients, office application software, communication, organization, audio, operating systems, utilities, anti-virus, calendars and to-do lists, file conversions, social software, video, graphics, and games/activities.

Since the list is provided by PC magazine I doubt that all of these entries are MAC-OSX compatible. But while scrolling through I do recognize a lot of them.

What else is free? taking a walk, walking on the beach, walking on a beach in flip flops, and then I go back to tropical paradise…
