Where I find my freeware

I was thrilled to receive this note of appreciation from Tim M:

Thank you for the mental garden. I found your garden while looking for freeware advice on google about 3 months ago. Since then I have found a use for at least 2 or 3 freeware programs you reviewed that have helped me enormously in my projects at home, and also at work.

Just want to quickly mention where I find freeware and how I am confident that they are highly recommended and virus free. The basic source is, though occasionally has highly-rated freeware lists that appear as front-page stories.

To check how good a freeware program is, or if it is known to have spyware/viruses, search for it in the alt.comp.freeware newsgroup.


  • Hi! Great blog indeed. I like finding something simple that makes a huge difference and this blog seems to be full of them.

    Nail It is especially useful - and such a small and simple app!

  • Hi Greg - yup, NailIt is pretty useful! The timer one is also especially good - it even remembers your settings when you exit and come back.
