What kinds of free software does /furi/ like to use?
Do you use free a program to draw? Make 3D models? Make music? Edit video? Or just for everyday productivity?
Are you a strictly open-source kind of person? Or are you fine with proprietary? Know any neat freeware utilities?
Share the cool shit you use to get things done, as long as it's FREE!

I encountered a lot of cool software synthesizers and other music utilities while I was looking for a free digital audio workstation last year. All the "free" ones that came bundled with an audio interface that I bought not only had licenses for some reason, but also bullshit limitations like a limited number of installations, or requirements like attaching the license to an account with personal info, shit like that.
I've got the FOSS essentials starter pack: Firefox, Thunderbird, 7zip, VLC Media Player, qBitTorrent, Notepad++, and I've been trying to get used to GIMP. I don't use anything by Google anymore, aside from visiting YouTube but I stayed logged out. I've actually made a lot of effort in the past couple years to get off of their radar, including paying for E-mail service somewhere else but that's another story.
