Free Win-software

Postby Dutch_Master » Sat Nov 22, 2008 2:55 pm

For my Dad I need some FTP software and a WYSIWYG editor, preferably freeware. Is WS-FTP still freeware? Any suggestions?

If you find OOo a bit too bloated, Abiword is available for Windows.

Tnx chaps. Tried a few Win-OS programs, but I just can't work with those anymore... Settled for Composer (Seamonkey) as editor. WS-FTP is freeware, if you buy (!!) an unrelated product from them and you don't cancel your order! Guess what: F*CK OFF!! Got FileZilla for free instead...

Anyway, it'll be a while before his girlfriend can publish her own website with her artwork (paintings). Never mind, there's some free meals waiting for me then :mrgreen: (She's an excellent cook btw! ;))

Have a look at the software available on OpenDisc. You'll find FileZilla :wink: and nvu which is basically what you're after. The full list of software is here.
