Software for windows
Since I’ve got permanent LAN internet connection (May 2006) I stop use windows at home also because the risk of getting exposed by malware was so high. But many friends and people around continued using Windows for different reasons. So I dedicate this page to them for getting familiar with great open source software which is available under Windows as well as on Linux. Here are some links:
