rpsoft 2000 Goes Freeware for New Software
New windows software on my software site,
is now offered as freeware. While contributions are optional after someone tries something - only if they return to the site - I do not track who downloads and compare it to whom contributes. And so it really is freeware.
I have been programming as a hobby for over 30 years, and I have been selling software online for over 10 years to over 25 countries. I now have new a new programming language more powerful and decided to change direction. I never program software to make money, but to make something that I personally want to have and use. And so, I am sharing my work with others.
I am generally all for Capitalism - if there is competition. Some software companies where I use their products are indeed great - like Atlantis and Calibre and some others. Even Microsoft I like. Microsoft has two free programs, Windows Movie Maker and Windows Expression (for website making) that they offer free, and I think are hard hitting.
But there are some pigs. It has now been 3 times that I paid for a software program, and it no longer works. In two of the cases they used my internet without asking to see if this program has been installed before. If yes, then they refused me service - even after I paid for it. Shame on me for having a hard drive crash (and no I did not lose emails, they were on two, count them two, servers) and installing a new hard drive. I of course wrote all 3 companies. They lie and say they do not do that ... shut off programs people paid for. Really? I could have sworn ... Of course, I do not tell them that I am a programmer. I sort of know somewhat what their programs are doing. And they say the fix is to buy the new version of their software - in all cases.
I said to myself (not to them) - that my fix is to program my own, which I will like better than theirs, and offer it for free. And it will have no internet spying, no adware, no viruses. Just the program. And online I will give my best advice about issues and include help on each program.
And so I did. After programming in 10 different languages, I am now using a new more powerful language. That was like giving nuclear power to a caveman. I already have four programs up there. Well, much of the inside type work I have seen and done before. And so, how fast can you type? Well, a few new things to learn. And the first three I did, well, I like better than what I was using, and in two cases paid for, before they stopped working.
And so, if you are interested in free Windows software that does not have internet spying, adware, or viruses included. Try my new direction at
The links to the new Freeware area is in white type on a blue background, before and after my books. :)
If you like the software, tell another about the site. If you see issues, tell me as long as you do so politely. If you hate everything about this, well then, may a rabid pack of wildabeests dressed in speedos picket your place. Please, do not pick option 3. I would be concerned.
Hope this helps someone.
