Name: Linux
URL: http://www.linux.org/
License: Open Source / GNU General Public License
Platform: N/A
Alternative to: Windows, Mac OS
Notes: Linux is a complete open source operating system. It can replace commercial operating systems, or be used in conjunction with them (via dual-booting). It runs on just about any hardware available, from x86 and x86-64 systems (the typical Pentium/AMD and Pentium EM64T/AMD 64 machines), to Apple computers, to portable devices. Note that you do not download and install 'Linux', but rather a 'Distribution' based on the Linux core. Needless to say, installing and using a Linux distribution requires more thought, research, and preparation than simply installing a regular application would.
More Info: Wikipedia: Linux

Linux install CD images (in .ISO format) available at http://www.linuxiso.org.

Name: GParted
URL: http://gparted.sourceforge.net/
License: Open source / GNU General Public License
Platform: Linux, LiveCD, LiveUSB
Alternative to: Partition Magic
Notes: Provides a LiveCD/LiveUSB, to enable the tool to be booted on any x86 system (in other words, it can be used regardless of the installed operating system). Claims to be able to work with most file systems, including FAT and NTFS as used by Windows.
Comments: The site says it, but I'll repeat it here: if your drive contains important data, back it up before attemping to modify the partition and use at your own risk!
