![lifehack how I reorganized my software upgrade-3727076_1280a.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmf2gb15jyfMLnrUVgAYa2xL5DumoQGtyfGyPbs4g4TLrt/lifehack%20how%20I%20reorganized%20my%20software%20upgrade-3727076_1280a.jpg)

### *Or: How I reorganized my computer to use less software of big corporations?*
After my old notebook died forever, I received the new one with Windows 10 and some other software pre-installed. I was experimenting a lot with Ubuntu before, but I realized it is not for me. I hated the process new software was installed, it was not really faster than Windows and not really comfortable. It’s OK for browsing or some other simple tasks, but some of my preferred software didn’t work with Ubuntu at all. Ubuntu is cool but Windows is cooler, at least if you need a lot of different programs. 

### Staying with Windows, but I began a long series of software installation for various reasons:
* To avoid being stored all my data in servers of Microsoft and Google, Adobe or similar big corporations.
* I like some other software solutions much more than the Windows originals or other common ones.
* There is some software Windows hasn’t and I need it.
### So I made the following (“– Microsoft” means one Microsoft service less I use):
* I registered to Windows as a new user with restricted rights (not administrator). I think viruses or other intruders have less chance to make harm if you aren’t working as admin. I made an anonymous registration with an ***anonymous e-mail*** (there are some good ones like Protonmail, Tutanota… search for “secure anonymous e-mail”, “encrypted e-mail” etc.). With a fake name, of course. 
* I installed my (paid) ***VPN software***. This helps me a lot to surf without revealing my true identity. If I want, I’m in the USA, or in Australia, or in Asia – seemingly. I don’t want to hack anybody, but I feel much safer.
* I changed Microsoft Explorer to ***Opera***. Opera browser is great, it has a built-in ad-blocker, a built-in free VPN service, ultimately, also a cryptocurrency wallet. (My second choice would be Firefox.) ***(– Microsoft)***
* I changed the Google search engine to ***DuckDuckGo*** in my browser. I use DuckDuck for a half year, approximately, and in most cases, it is as good as Google. I have to use something different only a few times, maybe once a week. ***(– Google)***
* I installed ***Avira antivirus***, I read it was better than the built-in virus checker of Windows. But better make your own research, please. ***(– Microsoft)***
* Installing a better ***firewall*** still in progress. Comodo, maybe? ***(– Microsoft)***
* Installed Total Commander. It is far much better than the built-in file manager of Windows. ***(– Microsoft)***
* Installed the ***Nexus*** free program launcher application. Handy, nice, adjustable, better than the Windows taskbar or menu. ***(– Microsoft)***
* Uninstalled Adobe PDF Viewer and installed ***Sumatra Viewer***. It is small, lightweight, handy, and can show also different e-book formats. ***(– Adobe)***
* ***I uninstalled Skype***. If I need it, less and less ultimately, I ‘ll use it better on my smartphone. I’m angry with this software because it [starts with Windows](https://steemit.com/technology/@deathcross/here-s-why-we-still-hate-you-microsoft) without my permission, like a virus. But there is better chat software nowadays. ***(– Microsoft)***
* Using ***[Rambox](https://rambox.pro)***. This program is wonderful, it joins several messengers, mail, social media applications in one. (Also Discord, for example.) Because my colleagues are using this, my family that, and my friends another one. I use also various e-mail apps for different purposes. Handling almost all my communications in one software, this is great. (Another alternative I tried before: [Franz](https://meetfranz.com).) By the way: Opera has a similar function, can display Whatsapp, FB Messenger, Telegram and VK messages on a sidebar.

![lifehack how I reorganized rambox.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmanXXXW45Q1CJokoi8Eh1c7VnxaTyNX74oFQvxHsgTCdw/lifehack%20how%20I%20reorganized%20rambox.jpg)

* ***IrfanView*** is great to view pictures and make small modifications, like cutting or resizing, or basic color enhancements. One Windows component less to use. ***(– Microsoft)***
* I installed also the free ***GIMP*** and some add-ons (Beautify and G’Mic or “GREYC’s Magic For Image Computing”). I don’t need Photoshop or similar complicated (and, in its legal form, very expensive) image manipulation software. ***(– Adobe)***
* ***[Atlantis](https://www.atlantiswordprocessor.com/en/)*** is a nice, lightweight word processor program, and the [lite version](https://www.atlantiswordprocessor.com/en/lite.htm) is free. It is perfect for a blogger, it knows a lot of languages, and has a good spell checker and an auto-complete feature with machine learning. (It memorizes your long words.) I don’t need heavy and very complex software to write a blog post. ***(– Microsoft)***
* I find the free ***VLC Player*** much better for watching videos than Windows Media Player.***(– Microsoft)***
* VLC Player is not so good playing music like the old ***Winamp*** was. Any idea? I need something like Winamp, maybe a little more modern but useful.
* I use Evernote and Trello to organize ideas and store a lot of work-related information. Sometimes, on my smartphone, also Google Keep. But I couldn’t eliminate the pieces of paper entirely. If I’m in a hurry, I always grab a paper. Sticky notes provided by Microsoft Windows isn’t bad either, but the free software ***“Stickies”*** is better. (Even better with different “skins”.) It is handy and quick to access, it seems to help me eliminate the papers from my desktop, finally.***(– Microsoft)***
## Thinking about even less 
So, I use now 13 services of Microsoft, Google or Adobe less. Earlier I also deleted all information Google was storing about me and forbid them to use my data again. Revised my Facebook settings. I suppose that’s only the beginning, I will make more changes. (What if Trump forbids Google to refresh my Android? I should think about it.) 
If I decide to make an excursion to the dark web or write something really dangerous, I will install some privacy operating system on a USB. (Like [Tails](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tails_%28operating_system%29).)

If you one can replace those with the really alternative ones and satisfy, it is a sign that they r not unique.

Good and useful tips. 

Have a look to brave as a browser as I think it is faster than opera. 

Install keychain to handle your steem logins.

For music, use AIMP
Very clear sound, even slightly better than on Winamp

Great post with lots of useful software tips.
I would also recommend **Multi Commander** over Total Commander (that I've been using for years), which is free and great. You can set it up with Total Commander's behaviours, and it offers a lot more.
And for those who need full replacement for MS Office, **Libre Office** is way to go.

Oh, and I bet you're using Windows 10 with lots of pre-installed software balast, so I recommend to try using **Geek Uninstaller** for uninstalling Microsoft software you don't use.

PS: Thanks for motivation for what I'll write about at my blog. I'm new to Steem so I'm looking forward to participating to this community.

Thanks for the information. I think utilities, life hacks are popular readings here.

Brave is not a add-on, it's a browser with adblocker. I combine Brave browser with presearch add-on. Both will help you to earn cryptos. Good luck!

Great post, I'm sure many others here on Steemit feel the same way. I know that I've made sure to use different types of software and services away from mainstream companies. 

Also to add as someone that programs at an amateur level. I've made it a point to also make sure that anything I write is crossplatform (Not that I've finished any software yet).

I need browser extensions to make my work easy. BAT seems to have none, Opera has extensions and can handle Chrome add-ons, too.

Great write up. If we're being completely honest with ourselves here, this might give some moderate (at best) sense of security for a mom-and-pop in the kitchen type computer, but anyone who's versed in what's going on in this world - and understands technology and computing...knows that the powers-that-be can decrypt and identify anything that they want. There is literally nothing that is available to us common people that can hide from them if we're talking about being online. Many may not agree or believe it's that extreme, but it certainly is. Now are they going to go after people like you and me just for the hell of it, of course not. but if you for any reason we're brought onto their radar, it would take seconds get complete control and access to your machine. Sorry if this comes off as being flippant but for real, it's really that simple!!

Great line up. I'll apply some on my Windows instance. 

Been using different distros of Linux for production since 2002. But I keep a Windows instance alive just in case.

And I totally agree. Not all software/services need to be from giant corporations. There are others less notorious players with decent products to work as replacement. .

It's up to what you really need and the budget.
