Free Software for your Refurbished Laptop


Just bought a Refurbished Laptop with Windows from www.ReGlobe.in. Tired of paying for expensive software. Don’t run off to local markets ( Nehru Place in case of Delhi)  for pirated ones or start downloading them from torrents. There are many software available for free which are as good (If not more) as the paid one but completely free. Here is a list of popular free software:-


  1. If you have bought a laptop with full windows pre-installed then that’s good. If your window is a trial version (will expire in 30-90 Days) then it is better of purchasing a new Windows OS or even better going for a Free Ubuntu. Fast, secure and stylishly simple, the Ubuntu operating system is used by 20 million people worldwide every day. Ubuntu works brilliantly with a range of devices. Simply plug in your MP3 player, camera or printer and you’ll be up and running straightaway. No installation CDs. No fuss. And Ubuntu is compatible with Windows files too, so you can open, edit and share Microsoft Office documents stress-free. Link:http://www.ubuntu.com/download
  2. The most essential utility software would be MS Office but the bad news is that your Word, Excel and PowerPoint are paid. So we have a free alternative which is OpenOffice. It is a full-featured office suite that’s compatible with Microsoft Office, Word Perfect, Lotus and other office applications. It’s easy-to-use and feature-rich, performing nearly all of the functions you’d expect in an office suite, but at no cost Link: OpenOffice.org
  3. If you don’t have antivirus protection installed on all your PCs, shame on you!

  5. Looking to run different streaming platform but want run only one media player. VLC is the best video player for Windows.

  8. If you do any project management (or have a need to dip your toes in the water), GanttPV does a brilliant job of managing the task quickly, easily, and freely. If you need to move to MS Project later, you can export from GanttPV to Project, but once you start digging into GanttPV, you’ll likely have no reason to use Project.

  9. Are you tired after downloading all the above software? Time to cool down with a hot free game. True Combat: Elite replaces games like Quake IV, Halo, etc but it’s Free. It’s basically a third person combat game, but the graphics are spectacular and the game is quite engrossing. Link: http://www.truecombatelite.com/index.php?page=downloads
