I have moved it to the bottom of the list because it doesn't seem to update AT ALL recently. It still might be helpful for finding older freeware.
These sites are related to software/systems development. I do a lot of that, so I visit sites like these all the time.

themes and related "eye-candy",
and Palm OS software. Thousands of applications, which are preferably
released under an open source license, are meticulously cataloged
