    Some of these might be for advanced users, but here are some more:

    Cyberduck - Excellent ftp/sftp application that you can also use with Amazon's S3 buckets (MAC)
    Notepad++ - Much better than notepad. Great scripting/coding tool (Windows)
    TextWrangler - Similar to Notepad++ (MAC)
    Evernote - Can't live without it. Much better than Microsoft's OneNote, IMO. (Mac, Windows, Mobile)
    Adium - Great instant messaging app that supports AIM, Yahoo, MSN, Jabber, ICQ, etc. (MAC)
    RealVNC/Chicken of the VNC - Remotely connect to your computer and use it as if you were sitting in front of it. Requires some router/firewall configuration. (Windows/MAC)
    Thunderbird - Can't believe so many people haven't heard of this awesome E-Mail client Mozilla put together. (Mac/Windows)

    ... more to come.

    Hello all, I'm starting a new basic Java EE programming class this week.

    I have experience with other programming languages like PHP, and developing apps with Visual Basic, so I'm not that intimidated by learning the Java syntax, but I want to know what the good open source IDEs' are!

    Can anyone tell me the pros and cons of NetBeans? Should I just use notepad++?

    I do have CS5, can I develop in Dreamweaver?

    I start my first programming assignment tomorrow. Any tips will be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Adium
    Open VZ (Open source version of virtuozzo)
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    Just loaded Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.10. So much better than Windows 7 Starter. Loads and runs fast.

    Any programs I should download ? Keep in mind it's a netbook with 1Gig of RAM.

    Nice. I've wanted to try out Linux or Ubuntu for a while now. My laptop and desktop both have windows 7 which runs phenomenally so I have no intention of changing those. Maybe I'll pick up an old laptop and give ubuntu a try.

    Good thread.

    EDIT: Maybe I'll try running a live version from a USB drive. I'm assuming ubuntu live is small enough to fit on a 16gb thumb drive.

    You are right. It will take a while to load though.

    Update: I love ubuntu but the new "netbook remix" interface is kinda crappy. I found it kind of restricting. Went to the "desktop" view and am even more happy. The little champ still zips. I want to get a Tony Stark type theme like I saw some dude online showed online.

    You could always try a partition with your choice on boot up? It's an option.

    You should be fine with size thumb drive. I think the full installation allocates a little over 13g, but a live version will run off a dvd, so 16gb should be plenty.

    uh Ubuntu will fit just fine on a 1GB thumb drive with room left over to add files if you wish.

    Ubuntu will use 13GB when installed but is not necessary to use it.
    Also Ubuntu will also run on old hardware just fine. as will most Linux distributions.
