thanks for the list, we plan to keep this list up to date, so if you have any recommendations to add to the list please post about it here and we will add the software to the list

That's just a few open source packages. When you add closed-source freeware, the list gets much bigger. Unfortunately, I don't think it's possible for us to keep a list of freeware.

Things that definitely need to be added are MythTV, Damn Small Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, FreeDOS, Bochs, DOSbox, WINE, Knoppix, Puppy linux, Open solaris, Chrome OS, Mythbuntu, Active@ ISO, Seamonkey browser

I'll probably add more later. These are just things I can think of.
hmm, JCB or another mod, is there any chance of creating a temporary thread to move the posts below the original to so I can add the second page and reserved page, or just clear the thread after the first post til I can add a couple of extra posts for more room?

I have another page of quite a few, including most of the recomendations, but the upload was soooooo slow last night because it is a big post I wasn't able to upload the rest
Chasys Draw IES (Freeware)
