This list was created for my own reference to keep all the links in one handy location. It might be useful for ideas for you too when you’re installing a new Windows PC or laptop. Not all of these are free, but the vast majority are.
[…] This is a list of mostly free softare that I need to have on my Mac after it’s reinstalled. I’m posting this mainly for my own future reference, so that I have a checklist and all the links handy when reinstalling. However, it might be useful for ideas for you too.

Not a bad list. I personally prefer Notepad++ over Notepad2, but then that’s more for the syntax highlighting and programming features than just being a superior replacement to notepad. I’d be very interested to know how the two stack up when opening *HUGE* 1G text file, e.g. database dumps.
That was Notepad Plus Plus (and it removed the plus symbols)
I haven’t opened 1GB file with it, might test it out at some point.
Edit note: I fixed the ++ for you.
Updated list for Dec 2009.
