2. There is no such thing as free software.. ;) (mostly)

Most come with spyware or adware that will drive you nuts.

The exception to this rule is open source software like gnu, or products that sell into open source markets like 3D printing. Those tend to be solid, community supported titles.

But downloader beware. Some "free" software will cause you more trouble than they are worth.
