Works ok?
I honestly don't use it much at all. But the little that I did use it it seemed to work good.

BlueStacks 4

Android emulator
I needed an android emulator in order to be able to remotely control Google Home/Lenovo Smart Display. I couldn't get Bluestacks to show as using the same WiFi SSID as the one actually used by the computer on which it is running. I use Nox instead. It does what I need it to do.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Not a program but a website.

https://distrotest.net/

Let's you test out hundreds of types of Linux distros in a browser virtual machine. Although there is significant lag.

Thought it's really cool.

Not sure if this is useful for anyone else, but in Windows 10 if you hit Windows+Shift+S it will allow you to snip a screen shot using your mouse
Super useful!  I did not know this and it will save me lots of time.  TY!

Any good program for matching two folders to see which files changes their file size?

Maybe WinMerge.
