I'll add more when I get the chance. If you have ever thought of jumping ship to linux and wonder what it's like using Open Source software, try these and see how you like them.
If you would like to try a friendly version of Linux, you could do worse that Ubuntu and drop it onto an old machine you have laying about. If you don't have that option and do not want to mess about with boot partions, you can also install Ubuntu as a regular app in windows: Wubi. There is also LinuxMCE if you fancy building a little media PC/ server.
Is there any cross platform open source software that you like? Post it here!
I use Linux Mint, Open Office, Firefox and Gimp and i seem to be getting along fine with it. it was a bit bumpy to begin with but TBH they all seem to be laid out very much like their more commercial equivalents and it didn't take me long to get to grips with things. for some reason firefox doesn't like to upload photos to photobucket but i'm inclined to put that down to my computer being crap

Question about blender. Will the 32 bit run on my 64 bit laptop? The 64 bit is not avaliable yet and I'm looking for some software as I wait for the other stuff to buy.
Also ftp. clients? Philip you sent me a link and I lost it. :-[
