I can do a 'best of' - we do have KVR for all the VSTs you know. I'll probably make a resource topic for the best free VSTs soon. :-)

Maybe this makes me an idiot, but I find KVR the most difficult site on the net to navigate. If you wanna do a best free VST topic let's say I'll owe you one.

Yeah, KVR has gotten pretty huge now, not to mention it's not the quickest of loading times (even on a 2mb connection) - but as for a one stop audio resource, if you're patient with it, it's one of the best. :-)
