In Honor of Aaron Collins’ Last Wishes

Seth Collins, left (brother of Aaron Collins), Rachel Johnson (sister of Aaron), holding daughter Abigail, 7 months, Rachel’s husband Michael, Tina Rae Collins (mother of Aaron), and the Johnson’s son Elijah, 3, on Friday, July 13, 2012 at Computers Plus Repair in Lexington, Ky. Michael Johnson owns the repair shop. Even after death, Aaron Collins gives on. The technician at Computers Plus Repair died July 7. He was 30. His family wanted to honor his last request, which was to go to a restaurant for pizza and give the server a $500 tip. They raised money to go to Puccini’s in Lexington on July 10 where they surprised server Sarah Ward with $500. Brother Seth Collins and his family made a video to show donors how their money was spent. It went viral. Aaron’s brother Seth started a Web site, aaroncollins.org, to take money to "pay forward" big tips to other deserving servers. The site has raised over $20,000.

Our Top Free Software List

In no particular order with varying degrees of awesomeness, here is some of

Our Favorite Free Software

1. Avast! Free version
http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download
Windows
This version has new features and a great look, along with a boot-scan that strikes at malware.

2. Avira Free Antivirus 2012
http://www.avira.com/en/avira-free-antivirus
Windows
Lacking little from the premium version (save Web protection and live support), Avira’s free version also gets good scores from PCMag and independent labs for malware removal.

3. LibreOffice
http://www.libreoffice.org
Windows | Mac | Linux
Our reviewer calls LibreOffice “by far the best free office application suite” and says it should be the first choice for anyone that wants a free alternative to Microsoft Office. It’s another offshoot from OpenOffice.org, but it already has more features and an improved interface. It includes a word processor, spreadsheet, database, presentations, and apps for math and drawing.

4. TeamViewer
http://www.teamviewer.com/index.aspx
Windows | Mac | Mobile | Portable | Mobile
Still our Editors’ Choice for remote control, TeamViewer 7 offers a brain-dead simple setup and a remarkably fast screen redraw when controlling another desktop, whether from a PC or Android and iOS devices. For free, you get access to a single system, which is perfect for providing tech support to family and friends. Read more
