Top 5: Free software

The best software on the Net that you don't have to pay for--legally.

So these are my picks , based on your feedback, of the best free apps you can find on the Net. You might consider them essentials. And what's the risk? You do get them for free, after all.

And you could also get a free Magic 8 Ball Yoda. I admit it's a bit beat up, but that's why we call it a "lame prize," right? So post your answer to the trivia question in the comments below and cross your fingers that your name will be drawn.

Best of luck this week!
