    Default The list of useful open source / free software

    I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread of all of the useful free and open source software out there. For reference to other people.

    Do not list Untangle please, that one is pretty obvious.

    Things I recommend;

    7-zip - Archiving utility for Windows, it can open tar.gz files in Windows
    Hash Tab - Checksum utility for Windows
    SubSonic - Music streaming software
    ClamWin - Windows port of the Clam anti-virus

    Will add more as I think of them, please everyone add your .

    I don't have any to add, but I would like to say that my general strength on the Windows side (and lack of on the Linux side) has kept me locked into Windows for longer than I have wanted to be. Lists like this are good for people like me (and there's probably lots of them).

    THANKS!!!

    I second many of the mentions in this thread. In the web browser category, there is also SRWare Iron, a compilation of Google Chrome code.
