    Not at all - we use it here and it is very good. It is only that the OP is asking for OpenSource software to complement the Governments Open Source Policy.
    Paint.Net wouldn't fit the criteria.

    popeel, thank you, but as I said before our list is for software which is specifically useful in an educational/academic context. The sort of software you mentioned is already covered by the Cabinet Office's existing Open Source Options list.

    Appologies if this is software that is not useful or not open source

    1. DVD Flick - DVD Flick
    2. Virtual Box - https://www.virtualbox.org/
    3. CD Burner XP - CDBurnerXP: Free CD and DVD burning software

    OR

    Deep Burner - DeepBurner - Powerful CD and DVD Burning Package

    OR

    img burn - http://www.imgburn.com/

    As far as free or open source applications, I normally / generally tend to keep an eye out on this url / site and go to the relevant section which has a list of software.

    Free Utilities, Software Tools and Applications (thefreecountry.com)

    Obviously click on the relevant link for the type of software you are looking for

    Just to confirm - was there any particular type of open source / free software you were after or wanted posting up ??

    DansGuardian is released under GNU GPL, which makes it applicable here. However, as I mentioned it's not really the sort of software I'm looking for.

    Never managed to get deep burner or image burn to successfully burn a CD on anything above xp so maybe a point against for those two.

    works fine for me on windows 7 for cd burner xp, not tried img burn on windows 7 yet. I do use img burn to create ISO's on windows 7 which works. Will try img burn for burning a disc soon.

    It does have a lot of links to free software although may not have been updated in quite some time as did notice that it does not mention things like the below video codec pack :

    CCCP - Combined Community Codec Pack
