Sphere is a RPGCE (a role-playing game (RPG) creation engine) that allows you to relatively easily put together an RPG along the lines of Final Fantasy 6 or Phantasy Star. It supports 32-bit graphics (with 256 levels of translucency) and MP3, Ogg, MOD, S3M, IT, and XM files for audio (and WAV and SPX (speex) for sound effects), and does not place arbitrary limits on map, tile set, sprite set, or script sizes.
All platforms are good
I use Windows NT and Linux while my parents use Windows 95. Since they have the only Internet account in the house, I must go through a proxy server set up on my parents' machine. I was thinking, "You know, it can't be too hard to find a decent free proxy server for Windows." However, I went to Tucows.com, Winfiles.com, Stroud.com and still could not find a decent proxy server. I ended up using the Proxy+ demo (only two users at a time) since it actually worked.
While I'm playing around in Linux, Freshmeat.net is a godsend. It categorizes almost all of the free software out there in a very organized index.
What I'm trying to say is that a page that listed free Windows software (be it a separate category, windows.freshmeat.net, or a whole new page) would be very useful and save many man-hours for home users and system administrators across the world.
