Default Laptop based scanning

Ok, work is buying me a new laptop next week. I know this has been discussed before, but what are the best known and most cost-effective laptop scanning softwares out there, preferably OBD1/OBD2 compliant, but with preference to the OBD1?

Let'* list them all, help an old guy out, and turn it into a Techinfo article.

Go after something multi platform, because if you are anything like me, windoze doesn't satisfy you.

Off topic: What kind of notebook are you getting? I can't wait until I have a job.. and then after that a job that would buy my notebook!

All the free ones. TurboLink 4.0 has an SSEi setup, Carbytes is good, Datamaster 32 is promising as well. A cable/box setup i bought on ebay came with a CD-R with all sorts of software.
