Should the list include only spyware-free and very freeware software. Some of the programs encountered in the list has spyware in it. Good idea to take them down or put a note next to the software to say that it has spyware.

Make a post with the name of the software if you find spyware, I will remove it.

3D Graphics

Freestyle http://freestyle.sourceforge.net/

Freestyle is a software for Non-Photorealistic Line Drawing rendering from 3D scenes. It is designed as a programmable interface to allow maximum control over the style of the final drawing: the user "programs" how the silhouettes and other feature lines from the 3D model should be turned into stylized strokes using a set of programmable operators dedicated to style description. This programmable approach, inspired by the shading languages available in photorealistic renderers such as Pixar's RenderMan, overcomes the limitations of integrated software with access to a limited number of parameters and permits the design of an infinite variety of rich and complex styles.
