    Apache OpenOffice

    I am using Apache OpenOffice for years. Got a problem with that?

  • Chocolatey

    Chocolatey - the package manager for Windows

    I did a bit of research on this. their website (link) is actually just a crappy package installer, similar to Chocolatey without the cmd, or Ninite. So naturally, I tried to actually do stuff on their website. Not only do the requests to download stuff sometimes not exist, but when you get an MSI or EXE to download, it will pop up a message saying the msi protocol was disabled. I attempted this with the 7-zip installer listed on their website. But they also have a paid, pro version of a package installer....that installs OPEN-SOURCE SOFTWARE.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.
