Hey, I wish some of you could help with the links page on my new page I'm working on. What do you think is the freeware: browser, anti virus ... that everyone should heve on their pc.

A list is enough, no links needed.

Thanks for your time

More...

Python (cross platform).
Perl (cross platform).
PHP (cross platform).
Java (cross platform)
FreePascal (cross platform).

For VB.NET and C# cross platform, get Mono. Just for Windows, get the .NET SDK (free, includes compilers).

Can also get GCC (cross platform) for free compilers of C, C++, FORTRAN, Java, ObjectiveC and Ada.

Not really everyday stuff, but thought I'd add to it.
