    Not just Freeware but Open Source (and the source is even included in the regular Win32 setup). Supports lots of non-Win platforms including Mac OS X, and plug-ins are available to integrate with Total Commander and Notepad++.

    Very simple, easy to use, and tons of templates.

    I tried INI files and had to convert from unicode to ansi to get it to work properly. I shouldn't have to do this manually! ;)

    I'll stick with Kudaz which is a bit complicated at first but is far more powerful.
