    Great post, I hadn’t heard of most of these tools before. It’s nice to see more posts with news about such kind of software

    There’s some really nice software there! I used Inkscape and Paint.net quite a bit before throwing down on the Adobe software, and I still use Notepad++ and FileZilla daily. Thanks for the post!

    I also love Komodo Edit as a text editor and IDE substitute.

    @NiteStar: Thanks for the suggestion but this post is focused only on Software. Will do a post on CMS in future.

    It would have been nice for you to include the 3 major open-source CMS in existence: WordPress, Joomla, Drupal…

    Quite a list here… I’m a big fan of PSPad and used the heck out of Paint.net before I bought Photoshop
