Opensource and Free software

Today everything seems to be expensive. And so students like me taking up Information Technology who can’t afford softwares that we use at school are having problems. Luckily there are places or what we call “open source” to get freeware applications that are of the same quality as the paid ones. One example of this was Dev C++. When I was in first year, it was really helpful because I couldn’t afford Microsoft C++ 6.0. It worked just the same and I loved programming even more because of it. And now, our professors share to us about Sharpdevelop and Monodevelop since we’re taking up C# for this semester.

We’re lucky there are websites like these. I hope in the future, prices of software will be affordable for students like me.
