My favorite freeware

As a professional developper, I need a lot of tools to help me
writing software, locate errors, solve problems, etc.
My blog about c# coding : Sharpcoding
I'm a strong advocate for freeware or open source software, many of which the quality equals of surpasses commercial
available software. But they are sometimes difficult to find. So here are my top favorite tools
