Content creation utilities. Some of them cheap, some free, all of them undeniably useful:

3D MODELLING AND GRAPHICS:

Jpatch: a 3d patch-based modelling application written in Java. Exports to obj format. (http://www.jpatch.com/) (free)
Art of Illusion: another 3d modelling application created in Java; supports multiple modelling paradigms. Under heavy development (www.artofillusion.org) (free)
Nvidia Melody: program for generating normal maps from high-poly 3d models; crashed on my computer, but might as well work on yours (developer.nvidia.com/object/melody_home.html) (free)
Normal map generator plugin for Gimp2:  generates normal maps from 2d textures. (http://nifelheim.dyndns.org/~cocidius/normalmap/) (free)
Open Render Bump: Like Nvidia Melody, but open-gl based and easier to use (http://engineering.soclab.bth.se/tools/177.aspx) (free) (recommended)

SOUND AND MUSIC:

Audacity: recording\audio edition environment. (audacity.sourceforge.net) (free)
ModPlugTracker: Windows tracker gone open-source; easy interface. (www.modplug.com) (free)
Linux Multimedia Studio: complete music creation environment; makes me wish I was a Linux user (http://lmms.sourceforge.net/) (free)
Muse: MIDI sequencer for Linux (http://www.muse-sequencer.org/) (free)

That's all for time being. I hope that with time and contributions from other forum users this thread will expand.
