Exclamation what is your favourite software?

I wonder what is your favourite software, which without you can't imagine your activity on PC. And why?

Here are my favorite:
1. Acronis True Image - I can't imagine my life without this soft. It saved me hundred times. It's just the best one backup solution!
2. NERO Burning ROM - I use it almost every day, not only for burning, even for convert some files.
3. Photoshop- revive my photo, which I thought, I've lost.
4. 3d Studio Max- I can create incredible thing with it.
5. Winamp- I can't live without music

Windows and/or Linux seeing as DOS is quite boring.

Oh yeah, forgot the Aps.

Firefox, iTunes, Paint and Word (I have office XP but have never used anything else.) You can see I'm not a Intel person.

Edit: does MoTeC count?
