                                    For CD ripping I like CDex: http://gnuwin.epfl.ch/apps/cdex/en/install/cdex_151.exe

                                    And the new Internet Explorer 7 is pretty neat: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/ie7/default.mspx

                                    Norton Anti-Virus has kept me virus free since 1999: http://www.symantecstore.com/v2.0-img/operations/symantus/site/promo/pd/sidebyside.htm

                                    And a little performance tip.  If you're running cable/dsl and have a router you don't need a software firewall running on your PC.  Network Address Translation (NAT) is a built-in feature of routers that works as well or better than a software firewall.

                                    Some may be repeated here but i'm too lazy to look them all over icon_smile

                                    Should be enough there I think though

                                    Operating Systems
                                    Debian GNU/Linux
                                    http://www.debian.org
                                    Red Hat Linux http://www.redhat.com/
                                    Mandrake Linux http://www.mandrake.com/


                                    Being a full time Linux user myself.
                                    I personally feel that Ubuntu should be at the top of that list.
                                    http://www.ubuntulinux.org/

                                    It is a debian based OS that is very stable, and easy to use.
                                    And is WAY WAY better then Redhat or Mandrake.
                                    Also it is free. Check it out!!

                                    Another place to check out is the Free Software Foundation
                                    http://www.fsf.org/
                                    They have a major list of software that is there for the asking!

                                    Just going to chyme in here with a personal opinion about browsers.

                                    According to a recent PC World article, the most recent version of Internet Explorer and Google Chrome are your safest browser choices.  I personally like Google Chrome for its ability to stop and restart a download, and its ability to download larger files through the browser.

                                    The browser softwares were rated on their number of vulnerabilities to an attack as well as the typical response time for fixing known problems.  Chrome and IE came in first for response time with Firefox just slightly behind.  IE had the most holes for an attack, but only slightly more than FireFox and Chrome.  Opera and Safari, (alarmingly the iPhone version of Safari as well) both had horrible response times to known problems and viruses (14 days), and only slightly less vulnerabilities than Chrome or Firefox.
