Some Great Freeware I Like and Use Often
These freeware have no Ads, no spyware and they are not trialware; they are pure, no-strings-attached freeware. This page is also an expression of my gratitude to the providers and creators of such great free software. I recommend them from my own experience. I am not a professional software critic but I simply express my personal opinion and gratitude.
JDK or JVM: http://java.sun.com
The Java Development Kit or the Java Virtual Machine; you need one of these packages for running any Java application. A must for Java
Borland offers a free version of their powerful Java IDE. This is what I am using for developing my freeware Java application.

Sothink HTML editor: http://www.sothink.com/

A simple to use HTTP server running on a Win95. I use it for testing my Web pages.

A free dictionary that works locally.

Sound, Music and Video
The best and the most complete audio file converter and audio file player. I converted all my vinyl records, tapes and CD collection into MP3 files; all are in my hard disk. I can listen to my music while using my computer. I then threw-away my HiFi system.
A very efficient, accurate and simple-to-use WAV-formatted audio file splitter. I used it to separate tracks or segments of music that I transferred from my tapes to my computer.
