http://eboard.sourceforge.net/ Eboard lets you view pgn files and connect to FICS. Has a scratch board that comes in handy.
http://chessdb.sourceforge.net/ Code forked from scid. Now has bug fixes and possible new features in the future. (Say that 3 times real fast.) You can annotate games with this one.
