PC Freeware I like apps that require no installation. Folrep - easiest way to find out which directories are the space hogs. http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/folrep.zip Copy Path to Clipboard - this might be the best utility of all time. Adds "Copy Path to Clipboard" to context menu (right click). http://www.mlin.net/files/PathCopyEx.msi Fscapture - Indispensable screen capture application. http://www.portablefreeware.com/download.php?id=775 Foobar2000 - the best (IMO) music player. Tabs for playlists. Supports a myriad variety of plugins, including VST, resamplers, compressors/limiters. It's good, it really is. Virtualdub - if you need to do video manipulation (noise reduction, deinterlacing, cutting the file, much more) this app is sublime.

Use them or risk becoming obsolete!!!

That app has saved my ass so many times in my calculus class.

Thunderbird is my favorite email client for managing multiple accounts.
Notepad++ has also helped with many projects.

Thread Starter 
  • Sun VirtualBox is a pretty solid free alternative to VMWare Workstation.
  • MS Office Groove (part of Office 2007) is turning out to be a decent alternative to the now-discontinued MS Live Sync.
  • UltraVNC for quick and dirty remote access.

If they took away Microsoft excel I would just put a bullet in my head. I can't live without it.
