Hi All - Please report here any freeware which you have run successfully on Windows 7. It's very early days for me but so far I have installed the following free products and they appear to run on Windows7 just fine:
Please keep the list going,

Hey Gene - That's great, thanks. Have you encountered any bugs yet? I have come across a few but they are minor and largely down to incompatibilities...only to be expected with a brand new OS.
One that is strange, the left-navigation panel on Daves Computer Tips site isn't operating using IE8 in W7...i.e. none of the links are active. Got the usual problems with a new OS too...having trouble finding drivers that will work, especially for Intel chipset, Realtek HD audio, etc. Doesn't seem to make that much difference though...so far everything is working OK using Windows native drivers, and the ones that are missing (in Device Manager) haven't had a negative impact to date. A few quirks too, keep getting messages, after a reboot, that Windows Defender and AntiVir are switched off....I go and check their status and they are both active, it might have something to do with the load order?
Anyway, so far I am impressed, especially considering W7's infancy....history dictates it can only get better.
thanks again for your input mate,

The laptop that I installed W7 on is only 6 mo. old, so most of the drivers are all working, plus I did an upgrade install. The only thing I have had much trouble with is it seems to drop my wireless connection from time to time, and there doesn't seem to any rhyme or reason to it. I'm not sure if the new "Homegroup" has a problem with the rest of my network which is a combination of XP and Vista and using MSHOME.
Anyway, it seems to be fine in most other respects. I have to say it's better than I expected for a Beta 1.
I'll let you know if I find any more free stuff or other issues.
