Freeware for Tablet PCs

Does anyone out there knows where I can find good freeware specially designed for Tablet PCs running on Windows XP Tablet PC Version?
I came across a few but there isn't much. If anyone knows of any good site do let me know.
I am more keen on TPC software for education.

Cheers!

Microsoft has some great freeware for Tablet PCs, in case you haven't found it already. Their Experience Pack includes one of my favorite apps - the snipping tool:

There's also the Education Pack:

For teachers who have a 1:1 computing environment and are looking for something more versatile than multiple choice "clicker" interaction, I highly recommend the Ink Survey tool developed by the Colorado School of Mines. It is a web-based way to ask questions that, in addition to multiple choice, can also be open-ended questions where the response is a drawing!

It's free, runs in a Firefox Browser, and is available to try at http://ticc.mines.edu.

Enjoy!
