Tips for finding Free versions of commercial programs

Type: Open Source in front of the product name.
Open source is Free software. (As in Freedom of Speech, not Free Beer)

Type "Free" in front of the Product name.
Note: watch out for Warez versions. These are illegal copies and often come with malware.
