Home Computer – already done for browsing the internet.
Download Visual Studio Express – free .
Download Sql Server Express – free.

All I have done is to sit on my home desk and tapping into the keyboard. But this is does not costs , right?

So if you’re a magazine, website, corporation, sports team, or
advertiser developer who wishes to use this photo software , please don’t come and ask to use it for free, or in exchange for credit or “exposure”.
Do not give feedback . Just rant about how bad code smells ,about how OOP and SOLID and Design Patterns are not made clear and how Testing is not properly handled. After all, it is free , right?
Common, your own time spent doing this program should not be free – after all, time is money..
