Wow. Impressive.

I like Vi but never got anywhere near that good with it.

I thought Word Pad usually shipped free with new PC's. It's a step up from Notepad, IMO.

The best word pad type program i've found is called metapad - it's free and has a number of nice features including font support and some basic formatting controls. Highly recommended.

Nice choice. I use Metapad too. It's pinned to my Win 7 task bar. I also have a shortcut to the program in my "send to" menu.

Treepad Lite is another nice free program. It is an outliner.

A bump to add a few new or missed programs...

new QSView - Instant Google Street View You will Love This... Type in an address and stand back!

Google Images Try this... Can drop any pic into search box, and find similar or same pic on the internet... eerie

Google URL shortener A great extension for Chrome. Shorten long URLs

Process explorer An advanced version of Task Manager

System Info for Windows (SIW) A great diagnostic tool. Step Up for Aida32
.................................................. ............

Wanna mention these two programs again, because I think they are indispensable.

Everything - super fast internal file search ----

Readability - I use this on every news page, to get easy read print, no ads, format and type size. It's also available in a similar format as an extension in Chrome, where it's called IReader

If you like admin type utilities for windows, this is a good link

Windows Sysinternals: Documentation, downloads and additional resources

Linux already has most of these.

Launchy. It catalogs your apps so you can hit ctrl-1 (or whatever) and type in the app name to run it (instead of looking for the app in the Start menu).

I recommend OneNote. It came bundled w/ the MS Office pkg we got with our last machine (also Vista) and I ignored it for a few years because I didn't really understand its purpose or power. After figuring that out (which took all of an afternoon), it's become the most used app in our household.

Google Images... drag and drop...
With lots of free time today, decided to play with the program... Often wondered about avatars, so dropped some of the forum avatars to see who the alter-egos were, and found out that Jean Paul ____ is actually older than me by 3 years. That makes me one of the younger guys...
