I simply can’t believe that FileZilla has NOT already been a GSotW, but I did a search on the site, and it hasn’t! What!?! I use it almost as much as I use ANY piece of software! I use it on my Linux systems, on my Mac systems, and on my PC systems! Dewd! How did I not mention it already?!? (well, I have mentioned it in my “perfect Linux builds” posts, but… wow!) This has been a major oversight! So, consider it rectified!
