How do I convert MapInfo TAB and/or MIF to SHP?

I currently do not have MapInfo but I do have a lot of ".Map" files that I need to convert for use in ArcGIS.

Actually each file (much like a shapefile i guess) is composed of several files:

Filename.DAT
Filename.ID
Filename.MAP
Filename.TAB

This is a probable repeat of gis.stackexchange.com/questions/42/… which covers .TAB to shapefile conversions. –  user3461 Jul 25 '11 at 19:53

Mapinfo TAB to ESRI Shapefile can be done in ArcGIS provided you have the 'data interoperability' extension (FME based conversion tool in ESRI clothing).

To do this free:

Ogr2Ogr will convert to shapefile from tab.

Thanks. No interoperability extension. As for Org2Org. Is there something that has a GUI? Add a file with a button, click convert, etc. –  Jakub Jul 25 '11 at 20:27
