    I wanted to write up something for 'free' software, not trials, demos, or programs that expire in 30-60 days, but full-fledged free.

    For your viewing pleasure, I took the time to get all this alphabetized by topic and bolded topics.

    Most links and hard work was originally done by atakiBOON and Neowin.net. I will add to this list, and let it grow.

    I took off all the discontinued products, and took off all the ones a noob wouldn't probably need anyway...

    If you want anything on here that I forgot, tell me about it. I'll put it up if it’s relevant.

    Edit: Clumped atakiBOON and Neowin.net’s list together as one, so it will be easier for me to edit.

    Enjoy!

    At least you gave credit to the people who took the time to put those lists together (neowin.net and me). It's a good list.
