Softwares I can't lived without

Here is a list of softwares that I use and can't 'live' without. If you haven't use them yet, you can give a go too. I hope you will also find them useful in your digitalized life. I might missed out some (but I can easily edit and update them), so enjoy! I disclaim, yet again, for any irreparable loss that you and your computer may face using the listed softwares. But don't you worry, they are clean and popularly used softwares. If you are curiously asking yourself whether I bought the original licenses for all the following commercial softwares (some of them are open source), then you are wrong. I usefully use one of the softwares listed below to get the full versions of the commercial softwares. :-))
