While downloads for the beta have officially been cut off, there are a few other sites on the net you can find it on, just make sure you download the right one for your operating system as there are different versions for Windows XP and Windows Vista/Windows 7, and both also have 32bit and 64 bit variations.
Now, lets take a look at what this looks like once it’s installed:
For those that don’t use Google Calendar, why not?

While looking for a couple different programs for different purposes, I stumbled across two programs that I thought I’d share.
Pdfsam – PDF Split and Merge – While CutePDF has the ability to create PDF files, it can’t edit them once they’re already created. This little gem is perfect for merging 2 PDFs into one, or splitting one into 2. It’s a simple program and maybe for a very specific purpose, but useful nonetheless.
While searching for a free equivalent to Lightwave or 3D Studio Max, I stumbled on Blender. It’s somewhat of a pain in the butt to learn how to use, but there is a lot of help on the websites, plus it’s FREE! Let me know what you think.
I’m sure there are other lists out there that do just this, but these are solutions that I’ve found for Windows XP:
- Microsoft Office – OpenOffice
- Antivirus Software: AVG Antivirus
- Photoshop – GIMP
- Illustrator – Inkscape
- Adobe Acrobat – CutePDF (Although this functionality is built into OpenOffice)
- Antispam: Ad-aware Free Version
- Microsoft Frontpage/Adobe Dreamweaver – Kompozer
I’ll add more as I find them, but if you have any suggestions, post them!
