My choice is obvious: OpenTTD has been on my computers like forever... :mrgreen:

Runners up: VeraCrypt, wxMP3gain, Pocket Radio Player, Treesheets and HoeKey.

BTW, nice trick with that table BBcode tag I didn't even know existed... :idea:

Love is blind, PopSel has something that I like.
HoeKey makes a good companion to it.

I can't really say I use any of the apps listed very much. But If I had to pick one that seem really neat and unique I would Say Splat. Other choice would be HoeKey purely because I can use it as another alternative launcher to make other apps portable instead of using a batch file, yap, or paf.

Favorite app: SunsetScreen.

This app is part of my startup routine. Indispensable app to control the color and brightness of your monitor.

Honorable mentions:

These are apps I have either used a few times or none at all, but are decent apps.

- Splat - By looking at the votes so far, I can tell this is a useful app. I haven't had the chance to use it, but I might down the road.
- PeaExtractor - Drag and drop version of Peazip. Might be useful for instances where Bandizip sometimes fails.
- Hoekey - Although this is definitely not new, I have a soft spot in my heart for this app. Used this as my hotkey launcher for years on some of my older systems.
- DBC Task Manager - Like the Windows 8 task manager, but are still using Windows 7? Use this app! Last time I tested this on Windows 7, it froze during certain operations.
- ExperienceIndexOK - Windows 8+ removed the Experience index. Use this app to check your Experience index on newer Windows systems.

Happy new year everyone!
is it stealth? ;)

VeraCrypt.

Opera? Perhaps this should be excluded?!
