Microsoft WebMatrix 1.11
A powerful, all-in-one web development suite

Microsoft WebMatrix is a free web development suite that aims to simplify the process of building professional, dynamic websites.

Installing WebMatrix will get you IIS Developer Express, an easy-to-use version of the IIS 7.5 web server that ships with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. SQL Server Compact handles all your database needs, and you're able to code your site in ASP.NET.

You can add an array of Microsoft development tools to this list, just by checking a few boxes in the installer: PowerShell 2.0, Visual Web Developer 2010 Express, Windows Azure tools for Visual Studio 2010, the Silverlight toolkit, and more.

And it's just as easy to add popular third-party web apps: DotNetNuke, WordPress, Drupal, Joomla!, phpBB and more. Or one of these tools, at least: check more boxes and an error message complains that "only one application is allowed per installation". Still, it's better than nothing.

Please note, the 84KB download is for Microsoft's Web Platform Installer only. Launch this, choose the components you want to install, and the installer will then let you know the total download size.

Verdict:

WebMatrix provides easy access to plenty of high quality, industry-standard tools. If you're thinking of dipping your toes into the professional web development waters then this could a great place to start

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
