In the proprietary, win-based, but free-as-in-beer category,
http://freeserifsoftware.com/ offers slightly older versions of
Serif's software packages free as long as you register them. I have
never (in five years) been spammed by Serif; they respect my e-mail
prefs. I use full, current (paid-up) versions on Win, including
PagePlus for DTP, and I've been quite happy with their software, as
has the magazine to which I've submitted PDF-formatted ads for drop-in
to their press process.
