Collection thread

== "Freeware programs that either went commercial after these versions
or were discontinued, or are hard to find or just plain good: "

== "321Download.com's Last Free Version page
for freeware that later went shareware/payware.

Includes, e.g., ClipCache, PrintKey, Total Uninstall, etc.

Some caveats on a couple of softwares I have got from those places...

jv16 powertools is great, but don't EVER update if you wish to keep freeware status.
Popcorn full version works great for single client, here's latest announcement from the website:
The Popcorn e-mail client will not be sold or further developed by Ultrafunk, but it might live on in another form.
If you'd like to be notified when an announcement is made about Popcorns future, please send us an e-mail

The latest freeware demo release (1.74) of the Popcorn e-mail client can be downloaded here: Tucows.com.
