Might be a better idea to link the the program's home page instead of download sites. that way newer editions don't mess up the links or what not.

I have thought about this as well, however since I am online alot I check for updates in these programs quiet often. So whenever a newer version comes out I will update the list. Thanks for the input everyone.
