I’m still using windows for my primary development environment, although the bulk of the software I use is open source and/or free. I thought I’d share/store a rundown of some of the apps I install on a fresh windows build.
- Google Chrome (Quite a surprise winner this!)
- Comodo Firewall
- AVG antivirus
- Eclipse PDT and Subclipse
- Firefox and Firebug
- Open Office
- K-Lite Codec Pack and Media Player Classic
- iTunes and Quicktime
I’m very happy with this set of free apps, and can confidently recommend you try any of them.
