    Squeak: Smalltalk that's bit identical on Linux, Windows, Mac and other platforms. Comes -- amongst other things -- with the best implementation of Freespace I've ever come across.

    Abiword and Xnview

    Abiword is a great word processor available in open source for a variety of platforms including Windows and Linux.

    Xnview is a free and very good photo view/editor with versions for Windows and Linux.

    I use both in Knoppix and these programs are on my Windows machine at work.

    Great thread. I love OOS software. Another one worth mentioning is Irfanview (http://www.irfanview.com/). I actually don't think it's open source, but it is freeware.

    I'm not quite sure of the topic of this thread, but if we are talking about opensouce (or free, but we can donate) that runs under Windows and linux, here are a couple of items that I'm using:

    Thunderbird email, with the lightning calendar, QuickFox Notes, RememberFox, Google Contacts tab and Google Calendar and the sync.

    Filezilla for FTP

    Is there a standard set of directions on how to install common software when using a USB boot disk created fTherom the 6.7 CD?

    The good news is that the USB boot drive was very easy to create.

    The bad news is that I can't seem to install or run most of the software that I would like to:

    - Firefox
    - Thunderbird
    - Openshot
    - Keepnote
    - Rednotebook

    I'm not sure where to start and surely this is a common path.
