Top 10 Open Source Software for Windows


I've been using Open Source software quite long since they are quite good and available for free. So I do not need to find any crack for the softwares. I think it is good, once in a while to expose Windows user on what Open Source Software(commonly used in Linux) could offer them on alternative software to the proprietary ones for daily computer usage.

Top 10 Open Source Software for Windows :-

The most powerful web browser. The best thing about Firefox is the availability of the plugins, pop-up blocking, themes, and extensions, especially the one that increase my productivity of being a webmaster/blogger.
