Thanks Al for all the work getting this list together. Some I use and some I'm going to try.

MediaMonkey has replaced EAC for me. It's not fully freeware since the advanced features require purchase, but it is clearly the best money that I have EVER spent on software.

Anyways, I used my considerable influence with the mean site admin, to have this thread stickied for y'all.

Thanks, I was originally trying to be polite with the link thing, and look how that backfired on me.

I notice that there is no section for alternatives to Windows :-).

Looks like a very useful tool kit. I could have used this when I was doing support on the floor.

Two free applications for your consideration:

1. The PC Decrapifier A great tool for cleaning up all the trial-ware nonsense included with new Dell/HP/Toshiba/etc. computers.

2. Metapad An alternative to Windows Notepad.

Great thread!

Very good.

I was simply pointing out that the OP was doing a decent thing. I don't see the point of nit-picking someone doing something helpful...

I just rediscovered a cool tip: www.filehippo.com stores, in chronological order, every version of many types of software.

Having an OLDER version of software available has come in handy a couple times for me so far:

- I upgraded to the newest Skype and HATED the interface. It was AWFUL. Filehippo to the rescue!

- Firefox 3.5 will not work with the Google Notebook addon, which I really, really like. I'm needing to do a format of my primary computer here very soon and will be able to get an older version of FF from Filehippo.

Hope this helps.

Here is an excellent site for keeping track f software that updates regularly to post new versions. it is a mix of freeware and shareware but each is clearly identified.

http://lists.thedatalist.com/

If you are into freeware portable apps. these are the two best sites.

http://portableapps.com/

http://www.portablefreeware.com/?p=1


DiskInternals has some great freeware ( it's at the bottom of the page.)

http://www.diskinternals.com/download.shtml

And here is a freeware site I found the other day that is pretty good. it includes reviews of different freeware.

Great thread!

For you iPod owners:

http://www.getsharepod.com
This handy program will backup all of your media FROM the iPod TO the (windows) computer. Check out the website, you can find all the directions on there. Works great, for a windows computer I wouldn't use anything else to get the stuff back off my iPod. Installed and working, current version, on my windows pc.

For Mac users:
http://www.podtomac.com/
Same thing as sharepod, but for a macintosh computer. Must have iTunes installed for it to work. Installed and working, current version, on my macbook.

podtomac also has a windows version of the program, but i've never used it before so can't speak to it's worth. The mac version of the program is exceptional, however, and I highly recommend it.

One thing, neither of these programs were able to back up apps from my iPod touch, though I didn't look too deeply. Never tried to back up pictures or any other type of data, I can only attest it's worth for recovering music and movies.

Most people think that once it's on the iPod you can't get it back, so have fun with this. By attesting to the current versions, I mean as of the date of this posting.
