I’ve been planning to write an “open source for Windows” entry and I came across this list of open-source software for home users. Most, if not all, of these projects have Windows and Linux ports. I will follow up later this week with at least an update of my Portable Apps pages (which I’ll also try to set up soon as a separate collection from my DSL pages).
