A few more general ones:

Vmware server/player (for all your virtualisation needs)

http://www.vmware.com/

TortoiseSVN (all you ever need for versioning)

http://tortoisesvn.net/

Ubuntu (or any version of linux)

http://www.ubuntu.com/

OpenOffice (90% the functionality, 0% of the price)

http://www.openoffice.org/

Jedit (great IDE for xml and such)

http://www.jedit.org/

Oh - I forgot audacity

http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

That is about it for now. If I think of enough others, I'll add them.

People who pay for software (excluding games and *highly* specialised software) are suckers in my opinion. Everything you need can be found open source and free!

Here's my general submissions:

SBC Archiver - Best compression algorhythm I've run across. Supports advanced encryption.
http://www.geocities.com/sbcarchiver/

MySQL - SQL database that's very fast and versatile.
http://www.mysql.org/

Apophysis - Really fun fractal generator. Renders at extremely high res.
http://www.apophysis.org/

SciTE - My personal favorite text editor. Supports highlighting and collapsing for about 30 different prog languages - including xml.
[url]ttp://www.scintilla.org/SciTE.html[/url]

Google Earth - Coolest maps I've ever seen. Plus it has mapquest functionality (directions, point-of-interests, etc.)
http://earth.google.com/download-earth.html

i got it a few hours ago and the learning curve is nearly vertical... especially with the total absence of any kind of documentation... Ill have to play around alot, T2TP looks really powerful and unlimited, unlike most demos.

For now we can't export anything, this is still a tech demo not implementing all incoming features. But woaow the gallery is quite impressive ! thx for the link Tungee ! And yes, it's hard to figure out how to control the terrain but adding modifiers, clouds etc is straight forward imo. Control is not that easy :?

Correction: It appears to have some limitations a bit like Terragen 0.9 demo

-Max render resolution 800x600
-Max anti-aliasing 3
-Renderer not optimized so very slow

There might be more limitations but they dont really bother me, its still a huge upgrade since 0.9 and it "seems" there is no time limit.
