IBIBLIO: /public/ftp/pub/linux/libs

I often find myself wanting to get a *nix "words" file on a Windows box. They're useful for things like making a list of all possible English words that are valid hexadecimal numbers, finding all possible domain names that haven't been registered yet, and stuff like that.

The linked directory contains linux.words in tar.gz format, which any decent Windows compression program such as WinZip or WinRAR should be able to handle, assuming you don't already have tar and gzip on your machine.

The current version appears to be linux.words.2.tar.gz.
