GParted
GParted is a partition editor that handles Linux, Windows and MacOS filesystems.

GParted, or the GNOME Partition Editor to use its full name, is a program for creating, resizing and removing partitions on a hard disk. IT also deals with creating and resizing the filesystems on those partitions. Although a Linux tool, and included with many Linux distributions, GParted fully understands Windows filesystems and boot methods and is available as a live CD or USB image so you can use it for partition reworking and repair on a Windows computer too.

The live disc option is usually the safest choice, unless you are working on a second disk drive that does not contain your operating system - manipulating the partitions that contain the operating system running the partition editor is like those cartoon characters that saw off a tree branch while sitting on it.

In addition to a CD iso image, GParted is available as an image file that can be used to create a bootable USB stick. Both the stick and the CD can then be used as a network boot source if you need to work with several computers on a network. GParted handles all Windows filesystems, NTFS and FAT variants in addition to all popular, and some not so popular, Linux filesystems. It even works with the Mac HFS+ filesystem, although increasing partition sizes is not possible with HFS+.

GParted is also available on other Linux live CDs, such as Knoppix and Clonezilla.

GParted live 0.20.0-2

 * The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded.
   This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2014/Oct/24).
 * Adding package syslinux-efi.
 * Bug fixed: missing required packages syslinux-utils.
 * Bug fixed: /sbin/start-stop-daemon was missing.
 

Verdict:

An extremely useful tool to have, whatever operating system you use.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
