SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Ohrizon.com has announced The SoftwareSherpa Computer Starter Kit, a $20 tool to help safely and easily setup a new computer with free software from the internet. People who received new computers this holiday season can save hundreds of dollars with free alternatives to Microsoft Office, Norton Antivirus, Adobe Photoshop, and more.
"There's a lot of exciting free software that people either don't know about or don't feel comfortable downloading from the internet," said Ohrizon CEO, Mike Lammers. "We use free programs to run our entire business and want to help parents, students, and small businesses save money just like we have."
SoftwareSherpa is an assistant to make the process of finding, downloading, and installing free programs from the internet safe and easy. It presents users with a list of suggested software, along with basic descriptions and other information to help them figure out which programs they might want. Users make their selections, then SoftwareSherpa manages the process of downloading and installing the software. Every program has been checked in advance to make sure it's safe and SoftwareSherpa validates each individual download to make sure that what the user receives is authentic.
SoftwareSherpa currently supports more than 20 free programs covering the areas of Documents, Spreadsheets, Presentations, Antivirus, Note-taking, Photo Editing, Home Movie Editing, Computer Graphics, etc. The supported programs were chosen for being legally free, free to use forever, and deemed by Ohrizon's team of tech experts to be most similar to the name-brands we're all familiar with.
