Question New programs for Laptop PCs

Hi Guys!

A friend of mine suggested me to use this site.
I was wondering if any of you knew about any good free software for inexperienced Laptop users?

Found a program called Moot (Moot Homepage | Moot), that lets me share and talk to my friends while we are on the same WLAN, but other than that I dont know where to look.

I need some programs like word and som media player stuff.

Thanks!

Well if you want free office software, www: OpenOffice.org - The Free and Open Productivity Suite is the place to go. It's generally recognized as the best open source office suit out there right now.

There's Media Player Classic. With one of the many free codec packs out there, it will play just about anything.
