In our daily lives, we are often stuck with using Windows wether it be at work, school, or on a computer in which we have no choice on what operating system to run. Because we are all smart people, we know the benefit and freedom that free software gives us. I thought I would start a thread that would give people ideas on what free software is available for Windows. Please reply with any suggestions you may have as well.

Mozilla Thunderbird - Email Client
Mozilla - Web Browser
Mozilla Firefox - Web Browser - A fully featured Office suite
The Gimp - Fully featured Graphics Manipulation program
XChat - IRC Client
Gaim - IM client supporting MSN, ICQ, Jabber, Yahoo!, IRC, AIM, Gadu-Gadu and Zephyr
MySQL - A powerful database server
Apache - The most popular web server on the internet
7-Zip - File archiver and compression program, supports 7z, ZIP, CAB, RAR, ARJ, GZIP, BZIP2, TAR, CPIO, RPM and DEB
Putty - Telnet/SSH client

I'm sure there are plenty that I'm forgetting, I'll tack on more as they come to me. I use most of these programs here in school, they are quite useful.
