Vista Switcher

A much better alt tab application, found it at lifehacker just now, and like it a lot already.

Reposted here because I'm a moron and forgot that there were two stickies in here now. Sorry.

If you want some sticky notes for your desktop, don't bother with the Microsoft-supplied Sticky Notes program in Windows 7; instead, try Stickies... it works much better, and is more configurable

Useful freeware that I think that people should at least take a look at:

FileZilla: obviously the best gui FTP program out there.

MySQL GUI Tools: If you have any databases that you need to connect to, and either 1) the database is running locally (either on the network or localhost) or across the internet (accessing it via VPN), it gets the job done.

SCWebCam3: While not useful for everyone, some may want to take screenshots of their desktop (and/or their webcam, too!) and upload it to a server, then this makes a good surveillance software. The only thing is that it's using a deprecated API for interfacing with the webcam, so with Windows 7 it will not work, even with compatibility enabled.

AbiWord is a great alternative to MS Word or OO.o Writer, and I recommend it for anyone who uses a flash drive regularly, since it also comes in a Portable version, which takes up only about 15 MB

(Is double posting allowed?)

Songbird, open-source alternative to iTunes, recommended for many non-iPod/non-Zune MP3 players (such as the Sansa players, COBY, etc.)... also the best iTunes-style player for Linux

Sumatra PDF

Unlike Adobe, it doesn't need to update 45 times per year. It's also much faster. It still integrates with the browser (I'm using Chrome). Can't go wrong here.

<-- I made this. Nothing special, just wanted a minimalistic base conversion widget that also does float/double. (e.g. enter a float and it shows that value interpreted as int and vice-versa.)

Has a few command-line options (use --help or -h to see them). Tooltips explain the boxes. Not tested on Windows. Enjoy.

Ninite. Pick the programs you want to install, and get a customized installer. Requires internet access as you're using it, though.

I recently discovered KGB Archiver, so I thought I'd give it a try. Too bad it only supports KGB and ZIP files, though, and it hasn't been updated in at least 2 years. =/

Making Windows behave a bit more like some Linux window managers:

WizMouse - Send mouse wheel events to the window under the mouse, even if the window is inactive. So, for example, you can scroll through a reference document while keeping your code window active.

altdrag - Hold down alt and move your windows around by clicking and dragging anywhere in them, not just the title bar.

Some things that can actually make Windows 98 somewhat usable in 2010:
* KernelEx, enables you to run more modern software, such as Flash 10, Opera 10.5x, Firefox 3.x, and Arora (an alternative WebKit browser); but sadly not Google Chrome =(
* Revolutions Pack 9, can make Windows 98 look like XP or even Vista, also enables eye candy like 32-bit icons and alpha-blending
* 98SE2ME, replaces Windows 98SE system files with the ME system files, but you don't get the buggy ME kernel (requires an ME disc, though =/)
* Windows 98SE Service Pack 2, hotfixes and patches for 98SE, along with Windows 2000 color schemes and icons.

ImDisk, a very good virtual floppy/CD driver for Windows; supports 64-bit, too! (unfortunately, I couldn't get Virtual Floppy Drive working on WIndows 7 64-bit... kept saying that “it won't run on Windows 95/98/ME”.)

For creating encrypted file containers, encrypting partitions, and other means of protecting valuable files from people, I use TrueCrypt. It's very easy to use and it's free. Works on Linux, Mac, and Windows.

Don't know if it's already been mentioned, but: ModPlug Player and Tracker, you can make different types of module files and play them. =D
