FreewareHome Indexed collection of Windows software that is totally free.
 


Welcome to Freeware Home

FreewareHome is a collection of links & information for freeware Windows programs for PCs

Commercial programs like Office or AutoCAD are not only expensive but probably overkill for most people. We aim to find the best, feature-rich, totally free programs for you. Many of them are actually even better than their expensive commercial counterparts, FreewareHome is the one place you really can find a free lunch!

Due to a disastrous server crash in early January we are in the process of rebuilding FreewareHome, we'll have new content almost every day so keep coming back!
