There are many Freeware download sites out there and you will see free software like Winamp, here on my site, which is also provided on most other sites. However, you may find programs and tools which you can't get everywhere and I list only software which is really free.
My pages are all available in two languages (unlike most freeware pages). I'm using a lot of the programs since a long time, I tested all of them closely and all reviews are written by myself.
I list a lot of Freeware and Open Source programs for Windows and other Operating Systems like Ubuntu and other Linux distributions, FreeBSD and other BSD derivatives, Mac OS X and Solaris.
In addition, I translated some of the programs you can find here.
English - German: Crazy Browser, GSplit and Quick Zip.
German - English: onlineTV and improveTCP.
You want to fight against clear-cutting of boreal forests, whaling, global warming etc.? Visit my environment related page and have fun while browsing my website!
Please refer to my web pages instead of placing Hotlinks!
Warning! Do NOT pay for downloading Freeware and Open Source Software! There are some sites on the net where users are forced to subscriptions when clicking on links for downloading programs which are available completely for free on the developers websites and on many respectable free download sites where you don't have to pay for anything. Some sites ask you to offer personal data or want to force you to pay before or after downloading.
Again, do NOT pay for FREE software in any way and do NOT offer your personal data on web pages you don't trust and seems to be obscure!
