not all open source but a nice resource for tool / multimedia type applications

theres a pdf viewer called 'foxit' that runs much faster than the adobe viewer.

Hi

I havent tryed Xpdf, but i did install Sumatra.
And i cant see myself giving up Adobe Acrobat for it.
It is missing alot, like search.
