I have to say I was surprised at what little software I purchase as there are now so many great free applications.

But this is a list of what I felt that the commercial solution offered something better:

Arcsoft Total Media Theater
VideoReDo TVSuite Version 4 with H.264
Zentimo
Mariner Paperless or Orpalis PaperScan
xPlorer 2
Movie Collector Pro by Collectorz
Photodex ProShow
TBS Cover Editor
Adobe Lightroom

I am real curious to see what others post here.

EditPad Pro is one of my favorite text editors. I've been a supporter of theirs for years.

Cheers and Regards

To compare text and registry I love http://winmerge.org/.

It may not be as complete as Beyond Compare...

ExamDiff Pro holds its own against Beyond Compare 3, for sure, but neither is free, and, BTW, they cost about the same.

I'm a registered user of CompuPic Pro. There are comparable freeware alternatives like XnView and FastStone, which are excellent, but CompuPic Pro is faster under Windows 9x. Not only that, but CompuPic's image editing features are higher quality. Each program has it's strong points though. I have all three installed.

I've also registered some cheap $10-$20 image viewers, none worth mentioning though, as I doubt they would be of interest to anyone.

I have a lot of nature photography that I shoot, so I needed the best I could get for Windows ME.
