3161 The_Toy_Soldier OBS. Open Broadcasting Software. Free, open source, really good recording software for your computer. :)

4496 Kell_Naranek Two come to mind: pfSense and FreeNAS. Both are *HEAVILY* used at my house! pfSense is a free open source firewall and router that is feature complete to the level of competing with almost all SMB (small and medium business) commercial firewalls. It is also extremely reliable. FreeNAS is a software network attached storage operating system. It quickly transforms any spare old computer with a few drives and a network interface to a centralized file server with support for almost everything under the sun, from Apple Time Machine backups to enterprise iSCSI setups that allow diskless booting of machines on the local network.
6510 ShorkGaaber As a digital painter Krita is probably the best art software you're going to get for free (As long as you add the brush packs) some of the stuff I've managed to whip up/ the amount of adapting you can do to the main window is insane Edit: I didn't think a comment like this would get gold! Thank you so much guys!
11764 itsnotwilldo Zotero. For those of you who do academic writing, this reference manager is 100x better and 1000x freer than EndNote.
8574 CalculusWarrior [stud.io](http://www.stud.io) is a wonderful LEGO modelling program, it's great for recapturing that feeling of building with bricks, and you don't have to worry about running out of a certain colour or stepping on a 1x1 piece. Apparently it also has an option to work on a project with your friends, but I haven't tried it out.
32496 Brolski Blender. For as much shit as the software gets, it is a workhorse for those of us willing to put in the time to learn it. It does tons of stuff from modelling, to animation, to video compositing. It regularly gets updates and the tech behind it is only getting better. Could it be better? Sure, absolutely. But for something that is free it's amazing.
13925 SodiumGeek I don’t know how many people here can relate but MuseScore is fantastic for anyone who wants to put their musical ideas onto paper. It’s free and has all the functionality you could ever want from music notation software.

11380 StetsonTuba8 Desmos.com It's an online graphing calculator and it's so much better than ge TI-84 I had to spend $120 on. It graphs all kinds of equations. For example, you don't have to isolate y, you can graph complete inverses, and constant placeholders exist too. EDIT: Fixed link. It's desmos.com, not org

8090 danishclarinets [LaTeX.](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LaTeX) I just started learning it a few weeks ago, and I've already switched over to it for doing all my assignments. The documents are just so much more beautiful and well-formatted than GDocs or Word, and it handles equations and math much better than either (which is good for me since I'm in engineering so lots of math). I'd highly encourage anyone who's studying math/science/engineering to learn and start using LaTeX.

2308 Geethebluesky [KeePass](https://keepass.info/). I have been using that as my password manager since 2008. It's updated regularly, has 2 versions (one .net and the other not), is entirely portable on Windows at least and works on a few OSes besides Windows. Has plugins if you need any functionality the base version doesn't have! It's changed the way I store passwords, addresses, URLs for everything... there's a learning curve but I have fallen in love with never having to remember a password.
