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!

Fbackup

Program: Fbackup Version:5.1
Author: Softland
Website: [ http://www.fbackup.com/ ]
Download: [ 1.2 Mb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: FBackup has a simple interface and guides you through the process of defining a backup job using a friendly wizard that asks you: Where do you want to store the backup (the destination). What do you want to backup (the sources). How do you want to run the backup (using full backup that zips the files, or mirror backup that doesn't zip them). When do you want to run the backup (you can schedule it to run automatically or run it manually). Once a backup job is defined, you can run it manually by pressing the Backup button (or F6), or if you add a scheduler it will run automatically. FBackup can easily back up sources from local drives (including USB connected drives) to destinations such as USB/Firewire connected devices or mapped network locations. It creates either standard zip files (when using "full backup"), or exact copies of the original sources without any compression (using "mirror backup"). The best thing about this freeware backup software is that it protects your data for free.

Vintage BASIC

Program: Vintage BASIC Version:1.0
Author: Lyle Kopnicky
Website: [ http://www.vintage-basic.net/index.html ]
Download: [ 1.0 MB ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8.0
Description: Vintage BASIC is an interpreter for a programming language of days gone by. A time when every home computer had a simple language called BASIC, and every kid who owned a computer learned it. It is implemented in Haskell, a modern language very unlike BASIC. I constructed it, beginning in Prof. Tim Sheard's Advanced Functional Programming Class, as a way to demonstrate how Haskell's monads could be used to implement BASIC's dynamic control structures. This odd marriage has now produced a fully functional implementation of that old favorite.

The calendar object gets pinned to your desktop and stays there all the time in plain sight so you can always see what's upcoming.
