I have started to invest some time and attention to making my programming and development area to be portable for any word that involves the Windows environment. Over the months, I have built up a nice collection of the applications that have been useful to my job and have really been handy in tough spots. So here is a list of the applications I use:

  • 2xClient (remote desktop for windows)
  • 7-Zip (much faster than regular zip)
  • ActiveStateKomodoEdit (fantastic editor for ruby on rails)
  • Aptana Studio (good editor for ruby on rails, but not used often)
  • Audactiy (audio editor)
  • FileZilla (FTP client)
  • FireFox
  • FreeCommander (kind of like midnight commander, but for windows)
  • GIMP (image editor)
  • gVim (slim text editor)
  • InfraRecorder (burning software)
  • KeePass (for all my passwords)
  • Lightscreen (very nice screen capturing software with some nice bells)
  • PuTTY (tty client for ssh and serial connections)
  • TeamViewer (really nice remote desktop application and very easy to setup with another person)
  • ThunderBird
  • UnetBootin (usb boot manager)
  • WinDirStat (find those big files)
  • winMd5Sum (check the file integrity when transferring stuff)
  • WinMerge (diff file and directory utility)
  • WinSCP (ssh copy)
  • WinWGet (wget for windows)
