Xtort.net, an eclectic new free software blog, has announced the release of a complete freeware collection which will enable the end user to save literally hundreds of dollars on software expenses. This software bundle contains only the highest quality hand selected software, all of which can easily match expensive shareware costing hundreds of dollars, without compromising usability or productivity.
In a time when mergers between leading shareware manufacturers are increasing, there has also been an upsurge in the development of free and open source software as well -- something which has empowered end users now more than ever. Empowering the end user is the sole intention of creating the complete freeware collection. After many hours of testing and using the various applications on different Windows operating systems, xtort.net has chosen only those programs which deserve to be at the top of the list.
Xtort.net's owner and lead developer, Kenneth Heimbuch states that there is simply no need for anyone to shell out hundreds of dollars for software, let alone spend one cent. Kenneth says, "While the industry standards in software applications on the market definitely have their merits, it is a common misconception that having the most expensive new shareware application out there can make you anymore productive. In most cases the opposite is true, because of the unnecessary bloat, learning curve, lack of customer support, and security issues found in many expensive sharewares nowadays. A good example is the huge growth of a new open source web browser, which is more user friendly, better maintained, and secure than the age-old industry standard. I simply had a suspicion that I could furnish my whole PC with 100% free software, tried it, and found out that my suspicions were right."
For the vast majority of computer users, this free software bundle has every sort of application imaginable: office suite, word processors, spreadsheet programs, graphics programs, media players, DVD players, privacy software, internet software, content management software, to name a few. There is even a tiny office suite that can fit on one floppy disk.
The interesting thing is that the complete freeware collection is not the only thing on xtort.net which can save money and increase productivity; there are also listings of thousands of free and open source software programs, spanning literally hundreds of pages, plus their own free software programs as well.
