These freeware programs, such as OpenOffice.org and RoboForm, just keep getting better with age
OpenOffice is a big program. Zhorn Software's Stickies is tiny by comparison, but no less valuable. This to-do list manager takes the form of sticky notes, which you "paste" to your desktop instead of to your actual desk. And unlike the Sticky Notes program built into Windows 7, Stickies is actually useful (sorry, Microsoft). You can assign timers, add checkboxes to your lists, and even set up recurring notes that pop up at designated intervals (such as every three months). Author Tom Revell is now on version 7 of Stickies, and the program just keeps getting better.
