Top three...

1. Total Commander
2. Find And Run Robot
3. WebSite-Watcher

Probably in that order, too.

0. Firefox. Ok, browsers have been banned, but it's really the first application i start, so:

1. VMWare Server
2. FARR
3. Eclipse

The browser and emailers that don't count: Firefox, Thunderbird, and Becky.

1. Powerpro - strange nobody mentioned it yet. It's a freeware swiss army knife sort of program, combining launchbar, clip tracking, note taking, window manipulation, scripting and many other things in one.

2. MS Word (now using ver. 2007). That's what I use to earn my bread.

3. Beyond Compare. Can't live without it. (Directory Opus -- my newest shareware acquisition -- might take over this spot in a few weeks.)

It's hard to pick up only 3, it is.

But after some consideration I finally would choose:
1. Wolfram Mathematica (5.2 and 6)
2. DOpus 9
3. WebSite-Wathcer

(all are legal before you ask  smiley )

There would be some other tools I use on regular basis but these are the most important ones among those...

looking at these programs it seems to me you need to change the question a bit.  I find it unlikely that anyone, except perhaps mouser, actually uses FARR for more than a few seconds at a time, yeah sure its a convenient way to launch a program but wouldn't what's launched be of more interest?  Maybe if you had a few categories, Favourite launcher, file/directory explorer, browser, other utilities, and most used program apart from those categories.  Just a thought.

This makes sense, but then... How many categories?

It could be simplified to the top necessary things - browser, email client, Windows Explorer/replacement - then go on to very broad categories like "background programs or programs that mostly run in the background", utilities, applications.

e.g. FARR would be a utility, an alarm clock would be a background program, something like a music player *mostly* runs in the background, while an audio editor is clearly an application.

That would limit the number of categories to a very small number.

Depends on the info that the OP wants/needs.

*screams* (OK, not really)

OK, well somehow without going insane I have managed put every single program name into my little (or not) notepad file, and am going to organize them and see what ones I can take out. Firefox, Opera, Maxthon (2, sorry but you should update anyways...), Thunderbird, FARR are all going to be in my app guaranteed, and it looks like Explorer (Windows), Xplorer2, and a couple others will be too. Its gonna be a pain making this down to the top 25. Hopefully more people will submit programs, I have about 5 more days until I plan to put this up for download.

Why? Both 2 and 1.6 are based on the IE engine and 1.6 runs fine on top of IE7. There are no security advantages to using M2 that are meaningful and I can't think of any reason to upgrade until all of the features currently in 1.6 are available in 2.

Easier to use, seems to open quicker, 1.6 will be obsolete soon anyways, and a newer interface. I used the beta releases of version 2 and I would never switch back from them to 1.6. Maybe I am just the type who absolutely has to have the most resent version undecided. I may include 1.6 support in SimpleStart, but IMO it is best to update everything asap.

I read the initial question more or less as "The 3 applications you like most", i.e. Top 3 as in 3 favourites. FARR is one of them, so...

I probably should have LiteStep in there, btw, although it's a bit different from all the other software.

Heh, heh, fair enough Brandon! I'd move to M2 if the plug-ins I love were available (they're not, for now) and I'm certainly not free of the "must have latest version now!" implulse.

Clevercat - have you ever tried Enhanced File Dialog? It's part of the ObjectDesktop suite (and ONLY available as part of the suite - I've asked, a couple of times...) and is 1. the best open/save dialog extender I've tried and 2. the only Stardock app I run all the time. Love Object Dock, too, but it's been rendered redundant by TrueLaunchBar. I still keep the latest version of OD Plus installed (beta at the moment) but don't know why, really.

Well... I decided to take another stab at configuring M2 to my liking and have succeeded. Other than the resource usage, I'm satisfied and am using it as my default browser for the moment. How I managed it can be read here.
