SoftwareFor.org collects a group of free software packages and makes them available for download. Almost anything you use the computer for can be done with a free program. There are alternatives that do at least 95% of the work for 100% less money. Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Outlook, Macromedia Dreamweaver, and others can all be replaced with the available free software. It's worth a look.
