What free software do you find useful, fun, or entertaining? I love the cool look of the Object Dock desktop (to replace the standard icons). I've also run CCleaner, Spybot S&D, AdAware, TweakNow, Heatsoft Clone Cleaner. I used to run Limewire, but a guilty conscience made me give it up.

I happened to get Limewire PRO. Works great.

www.download.com has a lot of freeware stuff.
