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!

PC Failure - BRB

Yesterday(Saturday the 19th) my computer blew chunks(Sata HD, 500gb, gone! dead! RIP HD) and left me in the dark. I will not be posting any new programs to FreewareHome for a minimum of one day, two at most.

I pieced together another pc from all the old parts and computers from my pantry(Yes, I know, in the Pantry! Where else would a nerd keep his computer parts? Besides, why would my wife need the pantry?  She can't cook worth a [Bleeped out by the FCC]!) and need to install an OS to get me back up, plus toss over all my stuff from my last backup(luckily I backed up within the last week or so).
