Suede-y - please only open-source software. That is programs which have their binary source open for download. MSN isn't such a thing, and alot of others on your list.

Suede-Y, well, atleast Mozilla Thunderbird is Open Source, even though nothing else is. I just searched through Google.

For My List, there is Partimage, a Norton Ghost Clone. http://www.partimage.org/

While it is Linux only, that little part is not such a big deal. Since it is included with the System Rescue CD. A Linux LiveCD full of Tools to fix, and maintain computer systems. http://www.sysresccd.org/

Then there is Audacity, a audio editing tool. http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

One of My Personal Favorite Programs, OpenFX. It is a 3D Modeling, and Animation Suite, and it is completely Open Source. Windows only though... www.openfx.org

Alternative to Knoppix are,...

SimplyMepis, geared towards Linux newbies, and Debian Based.

SuseLive Eval, a LiveCD release of the leading Linux distro, in the retail market.

PuppyLinux, the LiveCD that has learned a new trick. It can be burned to a CD-R, and then the CD-R can be used as a hard disk, via Multi-Session disc writing. Unfortunately after you save your changes to disc, so many times, you will have to burn a new Disc.

LinuxISO.org. I think the name is pretty self explanitory: ISOs of all major free-to-download distros. irssi, an IRC client, if you can figure out how to use it. Same goes for BitchX. Powerful, if you can figure it out. They're both CLI clients, and I think both limited to Linux/BSD. xine, a multimedia player for Linux. amaroK, a music player for Linux and UNIX based on KDElibs. MythTV, the Linux-only GPL alternative to SageTV or MCE. And quite possibly the coolest Open Source project I've seen in quite awhile: Mono, now in version 1.1.8. The "What is it?" entry from their FAQ.

Thanks. If anyone knows of a few more media players that work in Windows environments then please mention them. Also, Ubantu's homepage seems to be non-existant. Anyone know what's happened?
