Freeware, great programs, $0, legally :)

Ok, so I have decided to go legit, and quit just downloading programs, games, music.
So I have been working on a computer that is all freeware/open source goodness. I though I would make this to show you what I found, (sure, 85% of you know about all of these) but for those other 15%, what the hell.

I have found programs for just about most common computer applications. I divided them By category.

Office/School Work

-Open Office, a great work suite, with very user friendly programs. includes, Writer=word, Impress=power point, Math=math... Calc=calc... Base=Access? PC/MAC/LINUX (99% sure)
Open Office Download

-Notepad++ Very nice, color coded, code editor.
Notepad++ Download

-AbiWord, great lone, word processing program. Nice and works well.
AbiWord Download

-EverNote, free note taking program, tablet functionality!

-WordWeb, dictionary...
WordWed Download

Security

-AVG Free, great anti virus, takes care after your late night porn runs
You can schedule scans, it has an update everyday pretty much
AVG Free Download

-ZoneAlarm, good firewall. I personally just use the windows one.
ZoneAlarm Download

-AdAware SE Personal, a nice, simple spyware/**** remover. Works very well, constantly updated!AdAware Download

-SpyBot Search And Destroy, spyware/**** remover. I have personally never used it, but I hear it is good. SpyBot S&D Download

Internet/E-Mail/Messaging

Browsers...

-Mozilla Firefox, win, plain and simple...FireFox Download

-Opera, its nice, has some neat features. Opera Download

E-Mail

-ThunderBird, its awesome! I like it more than windows mail that comes with vista. ThunderBird Download

FTP

-Filezilla, there is two kinds, the server one and the non-server one. Make sure you get the right one!
Filezilla Download

Torrent Clients
-Azureus, great Torrent Client. I prefer the older version over the new fancy one...Azureus Download

IM/IRC/MSN...Messenger

-Pidgin, I love this nice and light on your system, works greatPidgin Download

Multimedia

-VLC, just win, simply win. plays pretty much everything. VLC Download

-Winamp, again, another good player. Winamp Download

Itunes Download

-Audacity, awesome free audio editor. Audacity Download

General Utilities

-7-Zip, winrar, for free basically. 7-Zip Download

-Alternate router firmware
DD-WRT: You can beat it with a stick. Solid, stable, and EXTREMELY customizable. Has a fairly large community backing it.

-Pc Wizard: more of the same, but gives a more complete list of information about your computer.
www.cpuid.com/pcwizard.php

-Hard drive wiping programs
Darik's Boot and Nuke: The name says it all. dban.sourceforge.net

-Eclipse: Free and is good stuff when programming in Java and a few other languages. http://www.eclipse.org/
