  • Students are burning CDs/DVDs by using known CD/DVD Burning Suites. These can be sometimes free but other times students are forced to purchase them.
  • Office Productivity Suites are widely used by students in order to complete several tasks for school and/or to make presentations
  • Students like to use applications to communicate with their friends/relatives/classmates etc. These applications can be instant messengers or email clients
  • Students are usually using special applications that help them in their school
  • Listening to music and watching videos are and always will be one of the students' main entertainments in their free time
  • Not to forget, students like to take pictures with their camera or mobile phone, then edit them with an image editor and finally upload them in the internet
