    Hope this can serve as a good intro for some nice windows only apps.

    I will start with mine:

    1. DVDshrink (Free), rip DVD to 4.5G *.iso, better than mac the ripper IMHO

    2. PDFexplorer (Free, recently changed to shareware?), manage, preview you PDF files, very nice and powerful

    3. uTorrent (Free), best BitTorrent app on any platform, fast, allow selective download.

    4. winamp, if you like it

    5. HoMM3 complete, Game

    Never heard of those other apps you mentioned, but I do use Winamp (the older 2.95 version, mind you) under CrossOver. For some reason, the demo song included with Winamp doesn't play correctly, but all other files I've tried so far play correctly, including ones that require specialized input plugins.

    I have an uncle that uses Corel Draw under Parallels, does anyone have experience of it with Crossover, as they say it is 'untested'?

    I use Crossover mainly for Office 2003

    I don't like Office 2k4 for Mac (PPC) on the Intel Mac. Using Outlook to connect to *gasp* Exhcnage servers is just better than Entourage, and not having to use PowerPoint on the Rosetta side of things is so much faster. :rolleyes:
