Well, to sum it up, if I have these pieces of software, I'm home. ;-) (if I used Windows anymore...see below)
Panorama Great for randomizing those gobs of wallpapers (does JPEGs), scheduling, and hot-keys!
Screenthemes The suppliers of my wallpapers (I replaced Panorama with this).
Topdesk A computer is not home without SnadBoy's TopDesk.
Quick View Plus Great Product. A little slooow on the JPEG decompression, but it does almost every file format.
ICQ Hmm, I Seek You, who ever you may be.
Hardware Sensors Monitor Gotta keep track of how hot my computer is (scorching!).
PGP Download Wizard Since NAI bought out PGP, I could never find a new version of PGP. Until I found this site, that is.
FTP Explorer Best FTP client. A little flaky at times, but it does the job.
Emacs Vi blows (in Windows - 3/14/2001). Emacs is where it is at. I use this for when I am not using a nice GUI-based text program or am in Linux/FreeBSD.
Some other software:
VMWare I hate to reboot. I really hate to reboot. But, I love to run Linux or FreeBSD on occasion.
WarFTPD I run my own FTP server - this program provides the best security at the best price.
Dr. Scheme If you need to do anything in Scheme, download this program. It is by far the simplest and easiest to use. Don't forget to set the language to Advanced.
Pullmail Takes POP mail and sends it to an SMTP server. Great.
Cafe 3.0 with JDK1.2 Sometimes you just need a debugger.
The real cool software is listed here:
Apache The one true HTTP server
Vi IMproved The one true editor (albeit enhanced)
Gale The one true IM
Mutt The one true MUA
Sendmail The one true MTA (qmail doesn't have decent LDAP support)
OpenLDAP The one true directory (iPlanet is awful)
Google The one true search engine
FreeBSD The one true cute OS mascot
