TJFREE is a YouTube channel and website by Ryndon Ricks.

I aim to provide accurate information for people looking for free alternatives to proprietary and paid software, especially media creation software.

All of the programs recommend here are free to download and use, and most are Free Open Source Software (FOSS).

These are genuinely free/libre programs who’s creators (in many cases) have chosen to donate their time and ideas in order to create awesome and useful tools simply because they can. If you find their software useful, please consider donating on their official websites.

I discovered open source and free software in the mid 2000’s, and noticed a lack of information and education surrounding some of this software. In 2009, I uploaded a YouTube video demonstrating my favorite free software applications, showing some of the useful and cool things they can do.
