Must-have open source/freeware application lineup

Here at core, I use several freeware/open source tools and resources to make my life easier, and best of all, they are all free to use... A line-up :

Sauce Reader

This is currently (according to my opinion) simply the best RSS-reader available.
It is simple and works as expected with support for ATOM/RSS/RSS2.
If you need to track a lot of websites for updates, this is one of the most time saving assets you can have at this moment.
