Great list!
Indeed these FOSS make computing really easy and fast.
And talking about Open Source softwares, I guess your list should also have included the open source OS, like the various versions of Linux based operating systems.
And tht also reminds me of the much awaited OS of the decade: Google Chrome OS. Hoping to read a review of that as soon as it gets launched in the tech section of arbitSpecs.. :)

Thanks. Me too eagerly waiting for the monolithic Chrome OS. I have been following the developments, will write about it. :D

I have deliberately not listed any Linux based OS because I am going to try some of them by the end of May/June and will be posting the experience based review.
