  • The Coccinella - A useful jabber client which offers pretty unique and free whiteboard functionality.
  • Psi - Another jabber client which is a bit more pretty, stable and light but has no whiteboard functions.

Capturing

  • Fraps - Simple but works like a charm.
  • Gamecam - Quite a feature rich capturing program.

  • TugZip - All around simple and clean. (Supports 7-ZIP, BH, BZ2, CAB, JAR, LHA (LZH), SQX, TAR, TGZ, YZ1,ZIP)

CD Writing

  • InfraRecorder - Extremely smooth package, reminds me of the old Nero days (without any extra crap) Also support for x64 platform
  • IsoRecorder 2 - Very basic, only burns .iso files, works good but don't expect anything special.
