24 Tactical Teams

It’s time for another random musement from the bleak corridors that line the coarse blood vessels in my

Free, Open Source Alternatives to Expensive Programs

Wish you could create vector art in Adobe Illustrator, edit videos in Sony Vegas, or just play a game of Halo 2 on your PC, but can’t afford the programs? We’ve all been there, and it sucks, honestly.

Thankfully, there’s a whole genre of software comprised of free solutions to the otherwise costly mainstream alternatives. This magical genre is called Open Source.

After the break are a few programs that you may find useful, with often just as many features as the costly alternative.
