    Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

    Hi all
    Others have added the "Fun" stuff

    I'll add the very useful but Boring stuff

    1) Open Office -- MS office clone - is fairly compatable with MS office - exception if you use MS EXCEL with a load of macros and VBA stuff or if you do a lot of "dynamic web queries" from within EXCEL. For typical EXCEL users compatability is fine as well.

    2) MySQL - great free database server -- very robust too.

    3) Apache web server -- much easier to set up than Microsoft IIS etc.
    4) Php -- very useul if you do any scripting / windows web hosting.

    (2,3,4 are often installed together on Windows or Linux- on Windows it's called WAMP and on Linux called LAMP).

    There's a WAMP ready installable package here -- but items 2,3,4 can all be installed separately of course.

    Install PHP 5 Apache MySQL on Windows : WampServer

    handy freeware PDFCreator printer driver . . .

    I'm using PDFCreator -- a handy freeware PDF printer driver.

    see: PDFCreator

    It installs as a standard printer, intercepting the data stream intended for a physical printer and dumping the result as a file in PDF format.

    Does it retain the hyperlinks in the pdf document?

    I forgot this one -Trader's Little Helper

    Traders Little Helper

    Traders of lossless compressed audio files (e.g. ape, flac, mkw, or shn files) have to handle a lot of different applications to decode, encode, create/verify checksums, fix sector boundary errors, or create torrent files. Moreover most of the tools used are command-line programs requiring a deeper knowledge of how to use various parameters. Trader's Little Helper bundles the most important features of those applications in one single easy-to-use frontend.
    Features - Encoding of wav files to ape, flac, shn and mp3 format
    - Re-encoding of flac files
    - Decoding of ape, flac, mkw, shn, mp2 and mp3 files to wav format
    - Direct conversion of ape, flac, mkw and shn files to flac or mp3 format
    - Test of audio files encoded in ape, flac, shn and mkw format
    - Verification of cfp, ffp, md5, sfv and st5 checksum files
    - Creation of cfp, ffp, md5, sfv and st5 checksum files
    - Display of audio file properties (ape, flac, shn, mkw and wav files)
    - Fixing of sector boundary errors that come with ape, flac, shn, mkw, wav and mp3 files
    - Removal of extra RIFF chunks in audio files
    - Rewriting of WAVE headers to canonical format
    - Creation of skt files for non-seekable shn files
    - Test of wav files for mp3 source
    - Creation of torrent files
    - Display of the information encoded in torrent files
    - Hashing of torrent files against local filesets or files
    - Drag & Drop functionality for all supported file types
    - Integration into Windows Explorer
    - Check for update function

    Also - QuickSFV Download - Quick SFV
    QuickSFV was designed with one goal ... to be quick! Existing SFV file verification programs were slow and cumbersome to use. Most users need to verify files and the quicker, the better. QuickSFV integrates into the Windows Explorer shell and makes it very easy to verify files. Just double-click on the .SFV file and QuickSFV does the rest. QuickSFV also understands several other file verification formats including .CRC, .CSV and .CKZ.
    For even quicker verification of .SFV files, QuickSFV remembers which files have been previously verified and will skip them in future checks. You can always tell QuickSFV to go back and verify all files again just to be sure.

    Personally I feel that traders little helper is just as good as quick sfv for checking those files and it is already included in that program, but others will disagree.

    Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

    Maxthon web browser: Maxthon Browser - Full-Featured Browser

    Quite a nice browser and shares IE's rendering engine and a few other things like internet options. Can also save your favorites online.
