Welcome to PCTalk:

The following links will take you to software and hardware resources we recommend
Please read our disclaimer before clicking on any of the links below or on the following pages.

Table of contents:

Freeware - Software the author has created and is knowingly allowing to be distributed and used free of any charge.

Hardware - Information about hardware and hardware drivers.

ShareWare (Pay if You keep) - Commercial software that the author wishes everyone to "share" with everyone else so they do not need to pay for distribution. But they expect you to register your copy and pay for it if you continue to use it.

Commercial (Payware) - Created and marketed, usually by large companies but sometimes by single individuals. It is required that you pay for this software, usually before you get a chance to even try it.

UNIX/Linux Only - A mixture of various UNIX/Linux site links. All Freeware unless otherwise marked.

Educational - An area dedicated to listing those sites offering further insite into some aspect of computer science. Usually there is no downloadable or purchasable software. All reading is done on-site.

In the context of software, an Easter Egg is a hidden feature or novelty that the programmers have put in their software. In general, it is any hidden, entertaining thing that a creator hides in their creation only for their own personal reasons. This can be anything from a hidden list of the developers, to hidden commands, to jokes, to funny animations. You'd be surprised just how many things contain Easter Eggs... just look at the list that has accumulated here!
