40 great free (and sometimes open source) applications

40 great applications that you can have for free. Nice.

This list of 40 great freeware applications is a bit skewed to the geeks (Web development tools, etc.), but it also includes some gems in the end-user application category. The list isn't restricted to open-source applications, and it misses some exceptional projects like Handbrake, but it's a respectable list.

It's actually pretty amazing all of the great software you can get for free.
