Addition for the list.

CD/DVD Burning/Cover creation:

Infra Recorder - http://infrarecorder.sourceforge.net/

edit:

Also ethereal is now Wireshark

Wireshark - http://www.wireshark.org/

and g4u is not a partition manager, its a ghost replacement - ie disk imaging/cloning.

Adding to disk imaging/cloning would also be

Developement seems purged on Infra Recorder which is sad because it deemed to be an excellent alternative to Nero.

Latest release doesnt burn or even DVD write for me unfortunately.

System Information and monitoring:

CopyMessageBox http://www.thyante.com/index.php?id=3,0,0,1,0,0

* CopyMsgBoxText allows you to easily copy texts or screenshots of message boxes and dialogs into the clipboard.

* Useful for documentation/bug reports etc: Instead of copying a messagebox's (or any dialog's) text by hand, simply strike a key (configurable to your choice) - and the text is copied to the clipboard. The "Paste" command of your editor inserts the message to your document!

File repair and recovery:

MjM Free Photo Recovery http://www.mjm.co.uk/freephotorecoverysoftware.html

The software will only recover jpg photographs from formatted memory cards, deleted photos or corrupt memory cards. It is unable to recover photos from memory cards that are not recognised by windows as a device.

Encryption and data security:

miniTrezor http://www.philosoft.hu/en/miniTrezor1.html

The program creates a protected, safe store (so-called vault or trezor) for the user?s data: the data are encrypted, password protected, and physically may be stored in several copies (located on several discs, or even several computers). The size of the trezor is determined by the space available on the discs, otherwise it is capable of accommodating any number of files of any size.

You may deposit common files as well as packages in the vault (the client program may combine several files or entire directory systems into one single unit, this is what is called a package), or you may as well safekeep passwords here along with the pertaining data (username, name of the system, date of expiry, etc.). The data deposited in the trezor (vault) may be systemised as well, in so far as a directory structure may be set up in the program.

CoolCatBad: Sounds like a good idea to me. Do you have any others you could add to such a category? Perhaps things like stock management, accounting, etc etc.

Record internet radio and save to mp3 or wav. Record streaming audio from the Internet, microphone, or any other source for that matter. MP3myMP3 Recorder works directly with your system sound card - if you can hear it, you can record it!

Mail programs:

si.Mail - http://simail.sourceforge.net

Especially upcoming 1.0 version is going to bring some revolution into e-mail management with its automatic message classification into views. I'm using nightly builds for a couple of days now and I have to say that I'm impressed.
