    I have an interesting idea for a twist since this type of thread has been done to death (and it's always the same products appearing every time), how about what commercial products can you not live without (let's make things interesting and exclude Adobe and Microsoft products as those are always common to the lists). So basically those small utilities or products which you use on a daily basis which you can recommend to others which they may not have heard of.

    Winamp
    HoeKey
    Crimson Editor
    VLC
    WinSCP


    They're in order of how quickly I'd install them on a new system. Excludes Firefox because that's too predictable (and no, I don't mean Firefox is too predictable, I mean something other than IE is).

    Lets see...I'm not thinking of much right at the moment but three standouts are: Komodo IDE, Meebo (not a desktop applications but web application...), Second Life. Been using those the most lately. Oh completely forgot about Zune which is mostly always playing music in the background.
    Logic without the fatal effects.

    Awesome I am loving this HeidiSQL rather than having PHPmyAdmin open in another tab in the browser, its very quick to use too. WOW you could get on your servers stuff too, that will be amazing!!

    Thanks Rudy this looks like it will come in handy

    Interesting choices, shame most of the same ones keep appearing, I was wondering what unusual stuff people use (which aren't common to everyone like Office or Photoshop or the many open source projects which usually appear like VLC, OpenOffice, GIMP, DIA, Eclipse and FileZilla)

    Never heard of them before so thanks for sharing I will defiantly check them out.

    I don't really use any uncommon applications so my 5 favourite apps are pretty normal. They are:

    - Notepad++
    - Adobe Reader
    - Chrome
    - Picasa
    - OpenOffice
