It sounds strange. But I'm gathering programs that are free or inexpensive for a website and custom computers I build for people. Programs that are very useful and work great: IE: Trillian, Spybot, Winamp, Firefox, Thunderbird, Object Dock, Powertoys, Grabit, TweakUI, IPFinder, Windows Uptime Stuff like that. I'm looking for great or inexpensive programs for: Disk Defragmentation (I'm liking Pefect Disk but it's not free) Free program for changing visual styles or GUI. Tweaking Windows Freeing Memory program. some sort of Paint Shop Program CD/DVD Burning program Some sort of Compression program (like Winrar, Winzip or Winace). Maybe there's a good free one out there. Or if something that you feel is a great program to have that's not on the list, let me know. Another reason why I want to do this is because it would be interesting to see what people use and what sort of tricks of the trade there are.
