Whats your favorite softwares and why?
Bandizip
its purpose is to unzip/zip files, i like everything about it, its free!, cool looking icon, ui design, settings etc.
it doesnt have an ugly icon like winzip and 7zip.

CPUID hardware monitor pro
idc about the pro features. I would of just used the free version but it was reading my fan rpm wrong. So i thought why not just go pro and support the dev. since its a useful software.

This is just for fun so feel free to share your favorite softwares...

This one doesn't specify "free". Also, I feel like "software" is a bit more vague than "program" and could even include operating systems.

On that note, here are some of my favorite softwares in no particular order . . .

Cisco IOS, IOS XE, NX-OS, and ACI
Vyatta/VyOS
LiveAction
VMware vSphere ESXi
VMware vCenter
GNS3
Cisco VIRL
Angry IP Scanner
SuperPuTTY
Notepad++
Python
WireShark

OK . . . I think I should stop before the list gets too ridiculously long
