Here is short course on getting all the software you could ever want or need. The first step is to get a good download manager. I use one called Free Download Manager. It is available at; http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/ It is free to download and does an excellent job. Before you even think about using torrents, look at open source software. There is a lot available now and you can find programs as good or almost as good as anything commercially available. It is all free to use and it never expires so you do not have to worry about how you are going to replace it. This link will take you to a list of 480 open-source programs. You can find almost anything you need there; http://mashable.com/2007/09/23/open-source/ If you can't find what you need there, then it is time to start thinking torrents. This link will take you to a good beginner's guide. I have checked most of its recommendations, and they are quite good. If you want to start downloading torrents, first, you will need a torrent client. I use Azures and am quite happy with it. The link to the guide is; http://mostlysavingmoney.... The whole question of torrents and PtoP sharing is open to a lot of debate. While there are many legal torrents out there are many that are not. You have to examine your own scruples and decide whether you are comfortable downloading and using them. If you' decided you want to try downloading torrents, you need some place to look for them. I have found this search engine is about the best there is; If you can’t find what you are looking http://www.completorrent.com/ I would urge you to have a good anti-virus program installed before you do any of this I've downloaded quite a few torrents and have never had a problem, but you'd never know.

thanks In my country, you can easily find many famous softwares such as Windows XP, Adobe Photoshop CS3 and 3DMAX for free. The law in my country allowed users to learn how to use these softwares without paying fees for comapnies.

Oh dear friend, nice.... You have given complete idea about downloading softwares for free.... I always preferred torrent sites for downloads.. I am satisfied with it. So i don't try any other ways for downloads.. Now i realise that, there is not only torrent sites but also other sites giving softwares for free.. But one of my friend said that for free softwares there are so many limitations.. Many of them expires with a specified date.. Or some of them disable more needed options.. And some thing like that... But this all are not in torrent downloads.. Anyway you have given a great knowledge about this field... Once again thank you very much dear friend....

Thank you very much! I like software, and I collect a lot of free software. I think since we don`t have economic capacity to afford that charge software ,we can use free software to replace them. Many free softwares are good enough for us to doing things and replace charge software. As some of them are open source, more and more software will be free!
