You forgot ti include Arbaro on your list dude...
Also Genetica isn't free, but the Genitica Viewer you are linking to is,
but the viewer can't export normal maps :( just the texture to jpg png etc.
and each of the mixed chanels (some could be used for Bump Maping) up to a resolution of 3000x3000

Thanks for the info. It already mentions that it's linking to the viewer, but I've removed the info about normal maps and I've added arbaro.

@manitwo: Hugin and autostitch rock! But I always use them with enblend (http://enblend.sourceforge.net/).

From the website:
Given a set of images that overlap in some irregular way, Enblend overlays them in such a way that the seam between the images is invisible, or at least very difficult to see. Enblend does not line up the images for you. Use a tool like Hugin to do that.
Check out their examples!

A couple of life-saving open source programs to add to your list (I cannot believe I forgot to mention them!):

Avisynth - http://avisynth.org/ Very powerful framesever scripting system (Windows)

FWC - http://fwutilities.sourceforge.net/download.html. This is a filewatcher that can run processes on newly created files. It is a Godsend! (Windows)

Duff - https://sourceforge.net/projects/dff/ Finds duplicate files. (Windows)

Refile -http://sourceforge.net/projects/refile/ Great renamer. Cross platform.

Autohotkey - http://www.autohotkey.com/ Forget batch files, this is an extremely powerful way of automating everything on windows!

The list needs text compare utilities - I have one somewhere but I'm not bothered to find it right now.

EDIT - I should shoot myself. Synfig is a crossplatform, ultra-awesome vector animation program. Think of it as Animation Inkscape, 2D Blender, Opensource Flash or Vector GAP (Gimp). I should warn people that it is alpha and buggy though.

Hey carbon, you use Blender right? If so, try a 'separate' feature if possible that removes mesh data and brings down the file size. Unless your editing mesh data or something....then I'm not sure what to do. :)

I still use notepad to open my scene files. (haven't looked for another program yet)
