Editorial This day-after-Thanksgiving, when many Americans are enjoying a day off and several others are at work goofing around on OSNews, we decided to ask you: what's your "killer app?" What's the one app you can't live without? Sound off in the comments - one app only!

* Opera on Windows - It's text-to-speech capabilities are the best I've heard. It's not uncommon for me to copy/paste a bunch of articles into a text file, a perl script converts that to HTML, then have Opera voice 'read' it at night while I sleep and convert that to an mp3 file for listening at work the next day. I don't read very much stuff at my computer anymore ;)

* Directory Opus - Best file manager I've seen.

* Adobe Audition

* Winorganizer - 'Outliner' app + PIM all rolled into one.

* 1by1 - Small media player that specializes in audiobooks.

* PowerDVD - I'd be interested to know if there's another video player out there than lets you fast forward/rewind a video at 2x without changing the pitch of the audio. That's pretty cool ;)

* Maxthon - Use it at work where IE is required. Some features are better implemented than Firefox or Opera.

* And about a half dozen little utils I have written for myself.
