It has been a surprisingly busy week when it comes to software designed with businesses in mind. As any modern company will be all too aware, having the right tool for the job can make life so much easier, and this is particularly true when it comes to the world of work.

Many businesses include not only Macs and Windows based PCs, but also computers running Linux.

In a similar vein is Lotus Symphony 3.0.1 – again available for all three platforms – providing you with a Microsoft Office compatible suite comprising spreadsheet, word processor and presentation tool.
Whatever your line of work, or maybe even just for fun, you may well have thought about creating a web site. Rather than plumping for an expensive and complicated top-of-the-range title, why not give CoffeeCup Free HTML Editor v9.7 a try?

There’s even a code-cleaner on hand to optimize your site by tidying up your HTML. No site would be complete without images, and if you’ve tried GIMP but found the interface a little intimidating, you should take a look at GIMPshop 2.6.11. This is a beautified version of the powerful image manipulation tool that you can use free of charge. If you’re working on a site or want to share images or ideas with friends or co-workers, overcoming email attachment limits can be a pain. Share by BitTorrent (alpha) is a free personal torrent client that can be used to share files of any size quickly and easily.
As well as sharing files, the internet is a great platform for communication, and Skype for Windows 18.104.22.168 Beta is a great way to keep in touch with other people. The latest beta brings improved video calling and Facebook support and is available for Mac and PC. You’ve probably found that when you’re online you tend to visit the same web sites again and again. To make it easier to switch between sites and programs you may be using, take a look at Pokki 0.245 Beta which can be used to transform your favorite web sites into desktop apps. If you’re looking for entertainment online, you can download a wide range of book from Google Books.

If security is a concern – which it is for many people – Hardwipe 1.5.0 enables you to prevent the restoration of files you delete from your hard drive by overwriting them a number of times with random data. Another form of protection is provided by this week’s final title, Real Temp 3.70 which enables you to monitor the temperature of your processor so you will know if you have taken overclocking too far.
