If it can be installed, Scott’s installed it

and if it’s any good, we hear about it. Really, I’m just posting this link to Scott Hanselman’s 2006 Ultimate Developer and Power Users Tool List for Windows here so I can find it later, but feel free to browse the list yourself, broken up into several interesting categories:

  • Top 10 (+ 5) Life/Working-Changing Utilities
  • A Developer’s Life
  • COM is Dead [ed: if only]
  • XML/HTML Stuff
  • Regular Expressions
  • Launchers
  • Stuff Scott Digs
  • Low-Level Utilities
  • Websites/Bookmarklets
  • Tools for Bloggers
  • Smart People’s Utility Pages
  • Alt.Lang
  • Browser Add-Ins
  • Things Windows Forgot
  • Outlook Add-Ins and Life Organizers
  • Ultimate Registry Tweaks
  • Windows Explorer Integration (and other integratey things)
  • Continuous Integration
  • TablePC Indispensables
  • ASP.NET Must Haves
  • Visual Studio Add-Ins

Notice how just his list of categories is longer than most people’s lists? Scott’s a gem. Guaranteed you’ll find something that makes your life better.
