the windows version of xchat isn't free either

 

well, there's a gtk version of xchat for windows that's free (but it sucks)

 

[edit]oh, and here's a grammar checker for the latest Open Office. Yes, the extension requires java. Now there shouldn't be a reason to use M$ office (unless you like macros).

As for Virtual Machine, I found something that is just as good as VMware and it free for personal use, It called Virtualbox which is based on qemu.

I'm using CentOS as the guest OS and Windows Vista as host, so far so good it feels alot better than using VMware.

- Parted Magic: superior to GParted, and even more visually pleasing.

- XNview: widely superior to Irfanview in all aspects, and worth a recommendation over IV.

- PSPpad: advanced text editing for advanced users, and hex editor.

- Spyware Doctor Starter Edition: for realtime protection and cleanup. Available in the Google Pack. Version 6 seems to have used to be exclusively available from VNU.
