Darn I forgot

SkyDrive Explorer
It lets you use your 25 GB of Windows live space right on your desk top. It's even added as an additional hard drive.

Also, Google Picassa.

Let's keep this going, we may come up with the biggest list on the internet. What a great marketing strategy for Asharf and a wonderful tool for users. :wink:
