Top 10 Free Open Source Software
InfoWorld has a great article covering some of the best free (and open source) software for Windows. So, all you Windows users out there (you know who you are, tisk tisk), listen up: you really can get free software legitimately (a.k.a., not stealing). As would be expected, OpenOffice.org and Mozilla Firefox both make the list, but there are some lesser known gems as well, including VirtualBox, TrueCrypt, and Paint.Net (I would have chosen GIMP of course).
Anyway, if you want some great free software, check it out! There is also a slideshow, too.
