in reply to perlmonks reccomended win32 programs

A few favorites:

  • mplayer plays nearly everything you can see or hear. (I prefer the console-only builds)
  • Noah for handling virtually any "ark I've."
  • HeidiSQL for mySQL dev. It's been on my list since the 'MySQL GUI' days.
  • TortoiseSVN. Listed by Arunbear, but it deserves a second mention.

And a few others:
  • Safari for win32. It's there. Might as well try it out.
  • SciTE is great if (like most editors) you take the time to really bend it to your will.
  • foobar2000, a 'lite' audio player with plenty of plug-ins available to make it heavy.
  • Privoxy to filter out banner ads. (...they still use those right?)
  • aspell for win32. 'Reccomended' for those pesky misspellings. ;^)

For more small apps, visit http://tinyapps.org/.

Addendum: I forgot SpeedFan.

    Speaking of SciTE, my favorite FOSS text editor on Win32 is Notepad++ which uses the scintilla editor as it's core, nicely packaged and configured and very user-friendly... if you want lots of nice features in a *very* light-weight package, but you don't want to waste/spend time tweaking, give it a try. I use it every day.

    I'm also quite fond of EPIC for the Eclipse Workbench. It helps bring the ease of developing and debugging with a full IDE to Perl.

    Also, Xming is a light, simple, effective X server I use every day.

    I'd like to give my endorsements for PuTTY and FileZilla and Firefox - and Opera. I would use Opera as my primary browser if only I wasn't so addicted to the FF add-ons. :)
