    Here's mine:

    long time; /* know C? */
    Unprecedented performance: Nothing ever ran this slow before.
    Any sufficiently advanced bug is indistinguishable from a feature.
    Real Programmers confuse Halloween and Christmas, because dec 25 == oct 31.
    The best way to accelerate an IBM is at 9.8 m/s/s.

    > Foxit PDF Reader

    Bingo! Thanks for that. Been always wanting to replace fat, slow, adobe pdf reader. Only never actually thought of doing it.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Oops. That you have.
    I've been away from this thread and started looking from last to first post.

    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEmacs!

    Nothing else is needed. Well, bash is useful, for running inside Emacs, and for starting up Emacs, I suppose. X.org is useful since Emacs works in that with nicer fonts and colors. I suppose Synaptic Package Manager is a useful program, in order to have an easy way of downloading and installing Emacs. And of course there's the software it uses. Then there are the various programs you can use inside Emacs, like gcc, mit-scheme, ghc, hugs, .... I guess the software that recognizes usb drives is pretty useful, too, and the kernel's pretty swell, but not as swell as EEEEEEEEEmacs! Xemacs is better, but not as good. Emacs is my best friend <3.
    There are 10 types of people in this world, those who cringed when reading the beginning of this sentence and those who salivated to how superior they are for understanding something as simple as binary.

    HMMMMMM:

    Firefox - internet browsing
    Notepad - Web-page coding (yes I know, state of the art aint it)
    America's Army - very addictive game
    MSVC++ Express and Code::Blocks - both for compiling different things as tehy each have their merits.
    Adobe Photoshop CS2 - image making
    Creative Media Source - whithout which I wouldnt get my daily dose of DragonForce

    Programs I could live without:

    Noton Internet Security - it is aweful, but I still have a couple of months to go.
    All the spyware lurking in my PC
    Internet Explorer
    Netgear WG311T - it keeps locking up

    I'm going to mention Google here cause I haven't mentioned them yet. From the necessary to the utterly pointless I'm with ye all the way.

    Well... if we are going that route, then let me add another one besides google.

    http://www.krugle.com/ Not even google code search beats this one.

    Yes, but its not your fault. I really wish the bloodshed team kept the Dev flame alive, but everybody has to move on to better things don't they? That aside, I still think Dev is the best "FREE" IDE out there. The mngw is a good compiler in my view and concidering I still have MSVC++ 6.0 installed in college, I am gald I can get home to a more compliant compiler than flagging declaring "i" within a for loop is invalid
