DeltaCopy - rsync for Windows

DeltaCopy is a free piece of software for Windows that allows you to interface with other computers running rsync. Basically, it is a "Windows Friiendly" wrapper around rsync. It is fairly easy to use, and also allows you to run rsync from the command line without having to install CygWin.

Multi-Platform Applications is a great little website that gives a summary of software that runs on a combination of Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Great for if you have different PC's running different OS's and want to use the same software.

Totally Free Burner

I've just found a great small new free piece of software : Totally Free Burner. This software burns audio, video, data, and ISO CDs and DVDs in just a few clicks. Great if you don't need the bloat of Nero or Roxio etc.
