    The Free Legal Software Thread.

    OK so I have a new computer and now I am broke and am wondering if anyone knows of some free legal software that may be handy?

    This is what I use at the Moment-

    Apache, OpenOffice which is a pretty decent Office Equivalent-

    Why Apache OpenOffice
    Why Apache OpenOffice

    Why should I use Apache OpenOffice?

    Apache OpenOffice is the leading open-source office software suite for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, graphics, databases and more. It is available in many languages and works on all common computers. It stores all your data in an international open standard format and can also read and write files from other common office software packages. It can be downloaded and used completely free of charge for any purpose.

    • Great software
      Apache OpenOffice is the result of over twenty years' software engineering. Designed from the start as a single piece of software, it has a consistency other products cannot match. A completely open development process means that anyone can report bugs, request new features, or enhance the software. The result: Apache OpenOffice does everything you want your office software to do, the way you want it to.
    • Easy to use
      Apache OpenOffice is easy to learn, and if you're already using another office software package, you'll take to OpenOffice straight away. Our world-wide native-language community means that OpenOffice is probably available and supported in your own language. And if you already have files from another office package - OpenOffice will probably read them with no difficulty.
    • and it's free
      Best of all, Apache OpenOffice can be downloaded and used entirely free of any license fees. Apache OpenOffice is released under the Apache 2.0 License. This means you may use it for any purpose - domestic, commercial, educational, public administration. You may install it on as many computers as you like. You may make copies and give them away to family, friends, students, employees - anyone you like.

    Where is Apache OpenOffice currently used?

    Why Apache OpenOffice

    Try Gav's post and look for Dealdudes pages on here:

    Free software like Adobe InDesign - Scribus. Free software like Adobe Photoshop.

    They're good enough for doing home projects and getting photos online for Facebook.

    Not sure if you looked further but as Shopaholic said do look at Dealdudes post: Free software like Adobe InDesign - Scribus. Free software like Adobe Photoshop.

    There's a lot more in the thread than just Scribus, also my first post had GIMP a software like photoshop. I've got photoshop CS6 so haven't bothered with the free software and going to get Scribus when I finally get my desktop computer setup. My laptop will probably run it fine, it's just I don't have the HDD space due to all the TV shows I get sent from friends back in Oz.

    The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a freeware utility that retrieves your Product Key (cd key) used to install windows from your registry. It also has a community-updated configuration file that retrieves product keys for many other applications. Another feature is the ability to retrieve product keys from unbootable Windows installations.
    If you need something more powerful, please compare Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder with wonderful tool called "Recover Keys". This advanced product key finder is not free, however it doesn't cost much for what it does.

    1. Command line options - /save <location> /savecsv <location> /close /hive <location> /file <filename>
    2. Load Hive option - allows you to load the registry hive of another Windows installation. To use, put the hard drive in a working machine (must also be Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8) or use Windows PE (not tested, should work) and click Load Hive. Then point it to the dead Windows install. If you're using Windows Vista, Administrator rights are required for this feature. You may have to right click on the Keyfinder and run as Administrator.
    3. Improved Save & Print! - save & print options will now include all keys. Save is also available in text or CSV.
