    To add on what Nitin has said, Microsoft also offers Web Matrix a new web developing tool free through which even PHP developers can also make apps and you can also use other open source stuff like jhoomla and most imp Web Matrix also has inbuilt SEO tool to run report..All this for free 🙂 🙂

    @Harsh, Thanks for the suggestion! But It is specifically for developers, I’ve tried to constitute a list of software that are useful for everyone like for IT pros, end users and developers. 🙂

    Thanks Harsh for the info!

    You missed SysInternals!

  7. I recommend Zoomit which is a Sysinternals utility…it’s good for presentations and is similar to the zoom function of OSX

  8. They are in the list at No.3 🙂

    This page is out of day and needs to be updated badly. One thing, Windows Essentials is dead as of Jan 1 2017. Microsoft pull the plug early this year. I like the Windows mail which was simple and easy to use. Would like to find simple and clean email client like Windows mail and works with imap.
