lgbt computer geek can help install open source, free or paid-for software.

I can suggest software that costs the low price of nothing, and the paid for software that you may have heard of, and perhaps use in the workplace.

Top 5 free software

  • LibreOffice – just like Microsoft Office, but free
  • VLC media player – plays just about any media file
  • Skype – call, message and share for free
  • MS Security Essentials (Windows 7) or Windows Defender (built into Windows 8,Windows RT, Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, Windows 10)  – decent security for your PC
  • Thunderbird – free email application, similar to paid for Microsoft Outlook  that’s easy to setup and customise – and it’s loaded with great features!

Software (‘apps’) can be installed remotely or during a home visit.

Please contact us if you are interested in this service. In many cases this can be done remotely. This includes free downloads and also paid for downloads from Amazon etc.
