I am in the proces of radically switching all my applications, email and apps to private ones and want to share that with everybody cause we live in a information war where we all have to fight to get the truth out as most if not all of our MSM channels are compromised... These are the ones i use and tested so it's not a complete list but merely what i know...choose for yourself!

Most software is free, as i prefer up but there are also some paid applications because they are proven to be as some of the best...

I am not allowed to recommend it, so i don't recommend looking in the P2P section to find software, video's or other  "interesting" things....just not saying...... {;-))


Facebook alternatives:

Minds 

Open source social networking service

Minds is a free and open source distributed social networking service that uses the block-chain to reward the community with ERC20 tokens. Users can use their tokens to promote their content or to crowdfund other users through monthly subscriptions to their exclusive content and services.

The Minds founder has gone to great lengths to ensure his site doesn't appear partisan, especially as other alternative social networks, like Gab, have become plainly aligned with the far-right. Ottman stresses that Minds has been supported and used by people of every political ideology. His focus is ensuring that Minds and platforms like it succeed, just as Wikipedia beat out proprietary encyclopedias.

Social Network focused on privacy

MeWe is an American online social media and social networking service owned by Sgrouples, a company based in Culver City, California. It was founded by Mark Weinstein in 2012. The service touts its commitment to user privacy and control as its outstanding feature.

RamDisk

What is RAMDisk?

RAMDisk is a program that takes a portion of your system memory and uses it as a disk drive. The more RAM your computer has, the larger the RAMDisk you can create.

What is the benefit?

In a word: SPEED! The performance of a RAMDisk, in general, is orders of magnitude faster than other forms of storage media, such as an SSD (up to 100X) and hard drive (up to 200X).

And the lifespan of your HD or SSD!!!

Revo Uninstaller Pro (paid)

The Uninstaller module is Revo Uninstaller Pro’s primary feature for situations when a program won’t uninstall normally or when you have some doubts that a program has not been uninstalled completely.

Also when a program is uninstalled, often times there are multiple files, folders, and/or Registry entries left on your system, which can cause various issues if not removed. This happens more frequently than you might think.


Linux - Click for Linux Distributions


I use Linux for private matters and Windows 7 (adapted and patched) for multimedia. Dual Boot (2 operating systems on 1 pc) is very easy to accomplish, ALWAYS START by installing the windows version you prefer and secondly when done, install Linux. When installing Linux it detects your windows version, all you have to do is point it to the partition (disk-space) where you want to install it so DON'T CHOOSE THE WINDOWS PARTITION!!! cause when you do, it installs Linux OVER windows instead of aside!

I normally start from scratch and when installing Windows i decrease the Windows Partition so the space that's left over is the space you reserve for your Linux install.

Dutch:

Ik zelf gebruik Linux voor privé zaken en windows 7 (aangepast en gepatched) voor multimedia...Dual boot (2 besturingssystemen op 1 pc) is zeer makkelijk te installeren, begin ALTIJD EERST met het installeren van je favoriete Windows-versie en wanneer klaar installeer je Linux...Hij detecteert zelf Windows, je moet zelf alleen de partitie (schijfruimte) aanwijzen die je het beste van tevoren reserveert (dus NIET de Windows partitie kiezen want dan installeert hij hem erover ipv ernaast!!!). Ik begin meestal met een schone lei en maak dan bij het installeren van windows gelijk de windows partitie kleiner waarbij het gedeelte wat je overhoud dus voor Linux installatie is.


Multimedia-stuff

Watch movies, series and more for free! 

Don't forget to take a good VPN server as mentioned earlier in this blog!

Not only to watch movies but also to unlock all country channels and website's by choosing a corresponding VPN server location and of course to be completely anonymous on the internet which is good for many obvious reasons.
