What are your TOP FREEWARE Programs
 
I was reading this link: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=4344 and there was URL's to 2 programs

1. AbiWord
2. Open Office

I was interested to know if anyone else had come accross some GREAT freeware and if so what it was ??

I know there is alot of FREEWARE around but to be honest some is not so good.

So I thought I would ask what you think the TOP FREEWARE Programs are.

Image2Icon
JoyTest (mailware)
RndWbPix (emailware)
SysSpeed
WBReboot (emailware)
WBWelcome (written with help from the author of Crazy Eights, the one game that sneaks into my little list... :cheese)

@Frog: PPaint is freeware now? Wow! Didn't know that.

Frog 06 August 2002 23:35

@blackcornflakes : You can find PPaint7.1b on aminet !
You can also find Colortype (font editor who looks like PPaint) on aminet.
CloanTo decide to upload this 2 tools in full version on aminet :)

blackcornflake 07 August 2002 14:56

Thanks for the info, Frog, but I already have that very version of PPaint, from a way back. The font editor I did not have, though... :)

Attention all peeps! If you have never heard of P(ersonal) Paint, try it! It makes DPaint look really shabby. IMO. :p

Proper gfx card support, wide variety of file formats, cool convolution operations, ARexx scripts, better animation, true 24-bit printing and other nice features.

Jambo 07 August 2002 14:58

I think DPaint is better :D

Incomparabile 07 August 2002 21:39
