This page offers some links to useful win32 programs that you
might need if you have no other chance to use a different platform. It
is done because I once had a similar page at my last working place at
Siemens, mainly for personal purpose. But I think it might also be
useful for others - especially because I don't need it anymore myself
- K-Meleon: The win32 answer to
galeon. K-Melon is a
gecko (the Mozilla rendering
engine) based lightweight webbrowser. Quite promising though still
in a quite early developement state.
- GIMP: The marvelous
graphic program. On that page you can download the .zip file for
- Vi Improved: This is a
texteditor that has lots of features hardly found in any other
editor that is available for win32. It has a high learning curve
but once you managed to handle the basic functions you won't use
any other editor anymore.
- slrn: This is the download
page for the win32 version of slrn, a great
textbased newsreader. It is greatly customizeable, colorful and
threaded. And it let's you choose your favorite textedior and
doesn't provide it's own.
This is a pager/text-based webbrowser that can render tables, use
color and let's you define your own keybindings. Furthermore it's
quite small and quick.
- PuTTY: The only one real useful ssh/telnet
client for win32. Open Source of course (GPL). Don't use anything
else if you need to connect to a *nix system (what else ;). You
will be able to use all the special keys, see the connection
protocol and have full xterm/rxvt color support. What else do you
need? scp of course - it's also available from there. sftp is
currently in development, AFAIK.
A textbased irc client that really beats them all. It is has great
default settings and is featureful. Specially it is easily
extensible through perl scripts. That make it somewhat universal :)
That's all, folks! ...at least for the moment.
