Virtualbox - Free Virtualization tool, with an available open-source version.

I am constantly amazed by Virtualbox's UI. It's dead easy to use, and easy to wrap your head around.

You have to use a wizard tool to make a new VM, but it's pretty straightforward and explains the options. Asking which OS will be virtualized is a nice touch - all the user needs to know is which OS is being installed and VBox can provide sensible defaults.

Each VM runs in its own window. Although it's perfectly possible to use them this way, once you have installed the Virtualbox Guest Additions you can also fullscreen individual VMs, or enter "seamless mode", where the VM's taskbar appears along with the host OS's taskbar.

You can run multiple VMs in seamless mode at the same time, but their taskbars will overlap, so that can be a mite annoying.

All in all, a solid piece of software. Free, fun, powerful, and easy!

Just bought Adobe Audition CS6 yesterday. I'm super excited. I finally can record professional vocal audio now. It has SO many features.

I'm not a huge software guy but I've tried some here and there. I like WPE PRO, its a little hard to get down, but afterwards it's good!

I also like Krystal Multitrack Audio, I like the effects and also MixPad. Those are my favorite ones.

GParted Partition Editor

GParted is a GTK+ front-end to GNU Parted and the official GNOME Partition Editor application.

It is used for creating, deleting, resizing, moving, checking and copying partitions, and the file systems on them. This is useful for creating space for new operating systems (works with Vista / Windows 7 System & Data partitions), reorganizing disk usage, copying data residing on hard disks and mirroring one partition with another (disk imaging).

Features

GParted enables you to easily manage your disk partitions:

  • Create partition tables, (e.g., msdos or gpt)
  • Create, move, copy, resize, check, label, set new UUID, and delete partitions
  • Enable and disable partition flags, (e.g., boot or hidden)
  • Align partitions to mebibyte (MiB) or traditional cylinder boundaries
  • Attempt data rescue from lost partitions

GParted works with the following storage devices:

  • Hard disk drives (e.g., SATA, IDE, and SCSI)
  • Flash memory devices, such as USB memory sticks and Solid State Drives (SSD's)
  • RAID Devices (hardware RAID, motherboard BIOS RAID, and Linux software RAID)
  • All sector sizes (e.g., devices with 512, 1024, 2048, 4096 byte sectors and more

Google Chrome is pretty much the new standard for internet browsing. One day, even Microsoft will decide it should abandon IE for Chrome.

What else is cool? YIM used to be cool from 2008-2010. But those days are gone. Even the new WLM isn't as great as before (i've always used ebuddy anyways).

No one wants to talk about forum software? I used to like Proboards, but now the service sucks, and it's latest release that's coming up is going to be a disaster. Admins can longer see the e-mails of their members. :/ All the good software is gone...
