Bush Computers Top 10 Free Programs

  1. 1. www.bushcomputers.ca andy@bushcomputers.ca Bush Computers Top 10 Free Programs One of the great treasures of software development is that for every expensive application or program out there you can usually find a few free options that are just as good (or pretty close). We at Bush Computers have compiled a list of our favorite free programs and put them all in one package for your convenience. We couldn’t live without these programs, and neither should you! Just a quick note, we did not create these programs and while we love them and use them we are not accountable for any issues you may have with them. One more thing - some of these applications may come with bundled software, so when you go through the installation process look to opt out of these additional apps. Let’s Get Started!
