DreamPlan Home Design [3.2 MB] Win 7 - Win 10 Freeware
DreamPlan Home Design Software is a useful home/landscape design software that allows you to visualize garden features, rooms, additions, or an entire home.
All the intricate planning is done before you even lift a tool, paintbrush or dig a hole. You can do so much with this free program that there is going to be a learning curve. It's well worth it only because how often do you redesign or build a new home, room or landscaping? It is powerful enough that it could be used in a commercial situation to preview a design for a homeowner before you begin.
You can quickly switch between 3D, 2D, and blueprint view modes, design floor plans for your new home, including every detail in your kitchen design, add in furniture, fixtures, appliances and other decorations to rooms. You can even build the terrain of outdoor landscaping areas with its easy-to-use interface for simple house design creation and customization.
DreamPlan Home Design Software is given away for free to market their other apps. They offer to install them during the install of this program but are unchecked by default.

FlightGear [1.85 GB] Win 7 - Win 10/Linux/MacOS/FreeBSD Open Source
FlightGear is a free, Open Source flight simulator in development since 1996 and features many additional planes, helicopters, and scenery updates you can download.
FlightGear has the advantage of being around a long time and is probably the best, most developed free flight simulator you're going to find out there. It's better than many shareware sims. You can fly numerous planes, helicopters and download hundreds of additional models for free.
Being Open Source, you will find that many commercial games are based on older versions of FlightGear, including Earth Flight Sim, Flight Pro Sim, Flight Simulator Plus, Pro Flight Simulator, Real Flight Simulator, and Virtual Pilot 3D. So, if you're considering a shareware commercial flight simulator, we recommend you try this one first.
The goal of the project has always been a sophisticated and Open Source flight simulator for research or academic environments, pilot training, and of course, fun, realistic, and challenging desktop flight simulator for anyone to enjoy.

ImageColorizer [13 MB] Win 7 - Win 10 Freeware
Picture Colorizer helps transform black and white images to color, and more.
You can use Picture Colorize to colorize and optimize your old black and white pictures automatically. Picture Colorizer also allows the adjustment of various photo parameters as well as apply filters.
Picture Colorize is easy-to-use, load your image, hit the Colorize! button, and the process begins. The selected image is uploaded to their server (only kept for 24 hours), which then utilizes machine learning from the massive database of processed images. It is that simple. Now, it isn't perfect, and you may not get flawless colorization, but you can adjust several different attributes to tweak it further. Finished images can then be saved in either PNG or JPG formats.
All in all, a good app for helping to colorize images in a very uncomplicated manner.
WhySoSlow [2.9 MB] Win 7 - Win 10 Freeware
WhySoSlow will analyze your system to try and find out why it's running slow.

You are presented with a complete report when done.
WhySoSlow will also let you configure alarms that trigger when specific criteria have been met. This can be ideal for monitoring CPU temperatures, fan speeds, memory usage, for example. It also includes tools to address these problems as well.
Eventually, it is expected that an 'AntiFreeze' application will be added, allowing you access to an emergency task manager for when the standard task manager cannot be executed.
