Mozilla Firefox web browser - Previously, one of those "best kept secrets" but rapidly gaining popularity these days. Firefox is now breaking through, and my own web site stats support this. Firefox runs on many platforms, is fast, glitch-free and likely more secure than Internet Explorer. Very stable in all my testing, and has lots of nice features.
Too much spam? SpamProbe spam filter - A very fast, Bayesian spam filter for UNIX created by Brian Burton which classifies spam so accurately that I no longer care how much spam I receive; I never see any of it. "Best kept secret" of the anti-spam world. (by the way,to stop telephone spam, use this National Do Not Call Service. )
PuTTY telnet/SSH client - Stable, light, powerful, and extremely functional. If I'm running Windows this is the SSH client I reach for immediately. Simon Tatham has done a very nice job with PuTTY, which is tool #1 for remote access.
Xnews news reader - Luu Tran's USENET client for Windows. Has all the features you need in a USENET client even for advanced use (kill files, scoring, etc.) Has a nimble interface, and works flawlessly.
