CFS does not list Linux, smartphone apps (including Pocket PC and Windows CE), or Apple Macintosh software.
While we do list some legally free commercial programs, this does not include the Microsoft Windows operating system (any version, including XP, Vista or Win7) which is not legally free.
The software listed on the Completely FREE Software website is provided AS IS and the Web Author(s) of the Completely FREE Software website makes NO WARRANTY or representation either express or implied with respect to any listed software its quality accuracy or fitness for a particular purpose.
Completely FREE Software is a program listing service and software library. Like any library it does not enter into copyright disputes between authors publishers and copyright holders.
We also do not currently support any 64-bit operating system as these are generally designed for commercial use.
Again, many of the programs listed on this site are suitable for these platforms.
We rate programs in "golden doves" from five doves (best) down to one dove (worst).
For more information about why this site was created, and about a pirate computer club which started my freeware collecting, please check out Confessions Of A Software Pirate.
Many of those programs are not available through any other Website.
Programs hosted by CFS are marked with this icon: If you are unsure of the differences between shareware, freeware and public domain software, please view our definitions page.
This site was born in May 1996 from frustration frustration that many of the so-called free software sites were not offering freeware but shareware, time-limited, or demo software which cost money to use or are not really functional. Even when genuinely free software was offered (usually mixed with shareware), many times there was no indication of its quality, download size, or even which of the listed programs were shareware and which were freeware.
The CFS site is designed to cater to those requirements good quality, genuinely free software (freeware) which has been checked and rated programs I use and ones which you will want to use too.
