List 20 Open source software tools/programs for windows


For this assignment, you will list fifteen (15) open-source (free licensed) Windows software tools/programs and five (5) paid software tools/programs for a total of twenty(20). Think about software that may be useful for a medium to advanced computer user in various fields.

(Do not include software intended for peripherals and hardware such as cameras, mouse & keyboard, etc.)

For each program/software, you must provide:

  • A brief description of the program (1-2 sentences).
  • The intended audience/user for the program (who is it for)(1-2 sentences).
  • What makes the program a good choice for that audience (feature(s), applications) (1-2 sentences)

Make sure to include at least one program/software tool and up to four(4) for each of the following categories:

  • Code editing
  • Music creation
  • Graphic Design

You can get creative with other categories, but there must be variety on your list.

A good example of a medium-advanced software tool/program:

1. GIMP (Gnu Image Manipulation Program)

Category: Graphic design.

Description: An open-source image manipulation software intended for graphic designers, photographers, illustrators, and scientists. Designers can improve the composition of images through several automated color correction tools such as color enhancement, stretch HSV, white balance & auto-levels. Designers can remove unwanted objects (artifacts and present objects) from any image using the Despeckle filter tool.

The software description and the intended audience are brief and accurate; the student provides specific valuable features for the intended user/audience.

A bad example of a medium-advanced software tool/program:

Microsoft Powerpoint:

Description: A presentation tool for presenting topics intended for communicators and executives. Exponents can give visual cues to better relate the information to the audience.

The software is intended for users with basic computer skills rather than medium-advanced skills.

Description & audience are inaccurate/incomplete

No specific features are provided in the example

Finally, select your two favorite programs from the list and explain why they are useful for you specifically.

Remember that plagiarism (%) is part of the grading rubric, do not use online blogs to create your lists like TechRadar, guru99, pcmag, etc.
