    Yes! gkrellm. If you type it in google it will take you to the website for download, but configuring it on your system can sometimes be a pain in the butt. You need to have lmsensor running on your Linux distro before gkrellm can work.

    FileHippo for programs/drivers may be faster if you have dialup. No flashy front page.

    Extracting files from install packages.

    If you want to test a new program, but don't want it installing to the system or making changes to your *pristine* registry.

    This is a great utility for extracting the files from install packages.
    Universal Extractor:
    http://legroom.net/software/uniextract

    The bundled Inno setup unpacker is not always the latest version.
    The latest version can be found here:
    http://innounp.sourceforge.net/

    Just overwrite innoup.exe in the Universal Extractor bin folder.


    For troubleshooting windows problems.

    Sysinternals Suite:
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s.../bb842062.aspx
    is an awesome set of tools for monitoring system changes and processes in real time. Including file reads/writes and registry reads/writes.
    Fun Box: Asus P8Z68-V GEN3++Corsair AX850++i5 2500k@4.5Ghz-1.272v++Corsair A50++2x8Gb Corsair Vengeance++MSI R7970 Lightning++Audigy2 Plat-EX++TBS 6280 DVB-T2 tuner++256Gb OCZ Vertex 4.500Gb Caviar Black.500Gb Seagate Barracuda++Sony AD7240s++Lian-Li PC-60++Linux Mint/Win 7++Asus P238Q

    Work Box: Gigabyte H61MA-DV3++Corsair HX620++i5 3450@stock++2x8Gb Corsair Vengeance++120Gb OCZ Agility 3++Linux Mint

    Quantum theory in a nutshell: It's so small we don't know where it is, it could be here, it could be there.

    Just 'cos it's legal don't make it right.
