Much better I think, would be to say, "What programs do you like/recommend"
It is impossible to mark 1 out of 20 for programs that are in different categories
All the programs I have on my computer rate as No1 for me, otherwise they wouldn't be there

I agree with Lighthouse. There is no absolute list. It all depends what you are doing. We could probably get some agreement on the system tools like Process Explorer or WinPatrol. But already with security suites/programs there will be different opinions and when it comes to applications, things will be hopeless. Someone who can care less about photos will not need a photoshop and someone who does not deal in music will not need any music editing programs. So you would have to break it down into the different areas to make it meaningful.

How about top 5 free/sharewares? Something I'd always like to see people's lists of. With Hash's permission for hijacking the idea of his thread, of course.

@jack, If I am well informed, the free McAfee firewall is no more available. My experience with McAfee on 2 systems was kind of dismal anyhow. Replaced it with Kaspersky that I got free for 1 year. The professional ratings for McAfee are not very good either. They always end up in the bottom third - except for rootkit detection where they seem to be tops.

@whs oh, rite

@pipo
Dreamweaver CS3 is now made by Adobe, not Macromedia anymore. Plus the interface is much nicer, smooth and easier to understand. But MX2004 has all the current features as well, its just that CS3 looks better and displays the functions in an orderly fashion to make it easier for the user to manage with it. Theres basically no difference, but i like the new picture buttons and tags under the file, edit, view etc bar.

Its up to u to decide. anyway wats ur list of 20 top software??? :)
