Free Anti-Virus and then some

What was shocking to me wasn't that the Google Pack contained mostly free rehashed stuff, it was the 6-month Norton Anti-Virus trial that raised my eyebrows. They must get some kick back from Norton to have that placement in the Pack otherwise why wouldn't they just include the free home version of AVG anti-virus?

Been using AVG to protect my laptop for a long time and it seems to work just fine.

Heck, where was the Open Office Bundle or Putty the free SSH client?

Now if someone just could build a free version of PhotoShop then there would be no reason to pay corporate America for software ever again.

Paint .net may be what you are looking for. I have not used it myself. http://www.eecs.wsu.edu/paint.net/

GIMP is pretty decent. There is a version for windows.
