    Post 21 Lesser Known Open-Source Applications for Windows

    Unless youíve been hiding under a rock in Madagascar for the last few years, you undoubtedly already know about the All-Star open-source applications for Windows. Iím talking about applications such as Firefox, Thunderbird, GIMP, OpenOffice, and VLC.

    However, there are hundreds of lesser-known but highly-useful open-source applications available for Windows. A few favourites are below.

    These applications range from moderately popular to downright obscure, but all of them are open-source and FREE. All of them are worth the install time if you have never tried them. As a side bonus, many of them are cross-platform as well.

    Here they are, in random order: 21 Lesser-Known Open-Source Applications for Windows | ixibo

    I have used Notepad+ and Filezilla for years; glad to see them on that list.

    Thank you roraniel, nice collection.
    I personally use Paint.Net, Eraser and Infrarecoder (alongside with CD Burner XP) in some computers of mine.
    I'll take a look for other interesting applications

    Default Thank you.

    Very nice list - I've used some of them before (eg. FileZilla) but some are new. Thanks for posting the link to the article.
