                Do you think that if Microsoft went back to selling its Office Suite rather than leasing it every year, it would be better for both the consumer and Microsoft? I wonder how many office suites I paid a lot of money and are essentially useless today.

                  Why bother with any office software other than Microsofts? Want guaranteed 100% compatibility? Then buy Microsoft Office! Unless your company is so poor that it can't afford a few hundred dollars to get a network copy of MS office, why would you bother with anything else?

                      I've used rufus for years, it is without doubt the best program out there if you need to make a variety of bootable media.

                                          Handbrake only has a 64 bit version. AVC (any video converter is good for converting & also downloads from LVclip & other video sites)

                                                    Arcade Version Audacity can just make sure you install the plug-in to make mp3 files, I think it's called lame for Audacity or something like that

                                                      Treesize. A program that shows u super easy where the disk space has run off to. Use it when I have to clean clients PC's. Often it's a backup that they made and forgot where they put it all

That is BlackMagic Design's DaVinci Resolve. It is by far the best video editor I have ever used. It also doubles as a high end video compositor. Second on my list of favorites is Hitfilm Express, its a light weight video editor that also doubles as a close of After Effects. It is not nearly as good as Resolve, but it is still a great option for video editing and compositing in one.

Rufus is great, as I love using Linux on my Laptop, I whouldnt recommend Handbrake apart from the DVD copy function, which does not support Drm. I'd recommend ffmpeg for transcoding, as I had better quality w/ lower file sizes and VLC can do the same stuff as Hanbrake

Because handbreak primarily uses FFMPEG as it's base. Asking most people to use CLI is a big scare away.

It's perfectly compatible to MS Office and regarding the UI you can choose between Ribbon style and Classic style.
