Do you use any freeware/shareware/open source software?

Normally I'm a pirate. Whenever I need a piece of software for a given purpose i just pirate the best, usually most expensive version. Last time I installed windows though, i was too lazy to pirate a copy of microsoft office.

Instead I downloaded OpenOffice, a free office suite, to hold me over until i got around to pirating MO. Over time though i've come to prefer it, its runs with alot less resources and i like the simplicity of it.

When i liked playing with images alot i also used GIMP for when paint wasn't powerful enough and i didn't want to kill my system with photoshop (although i never got REALLY into it, since i didn't want to learn two different programs)

Any free software you guys prefer over their paid for versions?

VLC and Chromium are my two most used programs right now.
I'm running a live CD of Ubuntu though, so everything's open source.
I need to get my PC fixed.

but I do show—thanks to a lot of in-depth interviews with GOP sources—how they plotted to obstruct Obama before he even took office. I show how the stimulus was chock full of stuff they claimed to support until Jan. 20, 2009—not just things like health IT and the smart grid and energy efficiency and scientific research, but the very idea of Keynesian stimulus. Every presidential candidate in 2008 proposed a stimulus package, and Mitt Romney’s was the largest.
