Great Open Source Softwares for Windows

Free and open-source software is good for you and for the world. I know many might have did this aggges ago but I felt it needed to be brought back in my own unique fashion. So here I go.

This is the best Windows software that I know of, so I figured I would share it with you guys. Feel free to download anything that you want, well cause I don't really care if you download it to be honest. No adware, no spyware, just good software.

Web Browsing

Mozilla Firefox
The premier free, open-source browser. Tabs, pop-up blocking, themes, and extensions. Considered by many to be the world's best browser.

A fast and customizable lightweight web browser for Windows, based on the rendering engine of Mozilla.
W3C developed web browser and editor for multiple platforms.


Mozilla Thunderbird
Powerful spam filtering, solid interface, and all the features you need.

Instant Messaging and Chat

MSN Messenger client written in TCL/TK

Connect to multiple IM accounts simultaneously in a single app, including: AOL IM, MSN, and Jabber.

Video Players and Video Podcasting

Media Player Classic
Compact, but powerful media player. Plays anything under the sun. No install necessary.

Plays more video files than most players: Quicktime, AVI, DIVX, OGG, and more. Pretty good interface.

Similar to VLC-- plays loads of video formats.

Democracy Player
Beautiful interface. Plays any video file. Subscribe to video RSS feeds, download and watch all in one app. Torrent support. Search and download from YouTube and other sites.

Peer-to-Peer File-sharing and Torrents

A simple, easy to use filesharing program. Gnutella network.

Download large files from multiple people simultaneously.

A more complicated BitTorrent client. So many features you'll lose your mind.

Photo and Graphic Editing

Photo editing application that rivals Photoshop in features.

Vector graphics application.

Also if anyone knows of any good open source software just mention it in Reply and I will add it to the Original Post.

Cheers and happy downloading.
