About ‘Breed’

Today’s ‘Best of Breed’ is a blog about my continuing effort to identify the best suite of freeware (or open source software) for a Windows PC. I am also including websites now because users can now interact with software applications, free of charge, through their browser. Therefore, I’m including a browser (Firefox) and the free extensions and other software that go along with the browser. Everything I list on this site is free to the user. Everything I list on this site, I have downloaded, installed, and continue to use myself. I am constantly seeking to improve my suite of free software. Any advice, recommendations, or comments are appreciated. I’ll respond to all comments in a timely manner.

Use the ‘categories’ or search engine to get to the software you are looking for. I plan to update my blog frequently so please subscribe to the ‘live bookmark’ available on the far right column of the blog just below the ‘Commentary’. Just right click on the syndication button syndication and choose ‘save as live bookmark’. Breed is my nickname for the site. You will often see me refer to the blog as ‘Breed’. This was necessary to identify my ‘widgets’ in the space allowed by WordPress and the nickname stuck.

To sum things up, everything I link to and/or review on this site is free to you, the user. I use everything I recommend and list on Breed. My efforts to identify the best suite of freeware is an ongoing project and I could use your help. I invested many hours downloading and trying software and I was amazed at the software that is available and I thought that if someone could separate the ‘wheat from the chaff’ people would realize that they could do almost anything they wanted with a suite of freeware. I want to be the site people go to, trust, and support, to configure their PC. I want to save you time and let you benefit from the hours I’ve invest in my continuing quest for the best suite of free software.

Sincerely, Your Author,

Ethan Dickenson

  1. Ethan,
    I’m so gratefull that there are people like you that will do the heavy lifting for those of us too lazy or passive to dig into these issues for ourself. What do you reccomend as a free website design program. I’m not about to write code and am looking for something I can make uniquely my own and still have the process be intuitive?

  2. Hi Ethan,

    I wanted to let you know about a cool backup program that offers FREE and UNLIMITED backup. I hope you will check us out and consider covering our application in your blog.

    With Zoogmo you control where your files are backed up by building a backup network of your own or your friends’ computers. You can even backup to an external hard drive of your choice.

    Zoogmo runs silently in the background and automatically backs up ALL of your data over the internet, using a combination of Triple-DES and AES 256 encryption to make sure that only you have access to your files.

    Check out Zoogmo at http;//www.zoogmo.com to download Zoogmo for free and begin turning your social network into your backup network.

    Remember, with Zoogmo you have no annoying monthly fees – totally free unlimited backup you can trust!

    Get your back up!
