Dont forget
the cygnus win32 tools
bash grep ls gcc and all the goodies.
Once you've used a unix shell you cant use!

I mention these as you are a Linux user

If you are a developer, or scripter type:
python with win32-COM additions
xemacs-win32 edition if you are a emacs type
miktex(for tex)
gvim or vim if you are a vi type.

With these apps I can actually live in windows.

Recently i've been putting groove..and you may want to consider Radio if you
maintain a frontier weblog and such.
I got this from you:
