0 916

Although computer operating systems such as Windows, Mac, and Linux come with a set of preinstalled virtual programs, naturally the user needs to download and use his favorite programs that may help him to get his job done faster. Does anyone still depend on Internet Explorer?!  No. I do not think, some prefer Google Chrome or Firefox or Opera and other prestigious Internet browsers.

But our problem in the Arab world – and often Western – is with paid software, giant professional software that helps us to get things done faster, always paid for a monthly/yearly subscription, or buy a valid activation key for a fixed period or lifetime. Most of us here do not like the idea of ​​buying a program, or maybe he does not have the enough money to get a full version of his software, or he does not have any of the electronic payment methods. But do not try to convince me that the solution here is to use illegal methods (such as Fake activations, crack), and besides being immoral at all, it also puts your computer at risk. The best free alternative programs instead of others paid on Windows system. If for any reason you are unable to purchase your paid software, why not look for a free program that does the same job as the paid program that you use? The free and open source program – regardless of its lack of professionalism about the paid program – will do exactly the right thing for you. Here are the best sites you can use when you want to find free alternatives to paid software.
