what free latin-english software dictionary do you use?

Please recommend me a Latin free software dictionary for Windows. There are a few to be found on the web. Which one suits your expectations best?
Thanks!

I run various Latin sites, including Schola and the Latinum YouTube channel - the main portal to these is http://latinum.org.uk

If anyone is interested, I use the following programs on my Linux box:
EBView from the repo with dictionaries downloaded from http://classicalepwing.sourceforge.jp/ (Lewis and Short and the Little Lewis)
And the "Felix 34" program which is an interface to scanned images of the Grand Gaffiot. A fully digital version is coming along at the above mentioned site, but they're only at the letter C. Until then, scanned images work nicely.
And let's not forget Whitaker's Words.

EDIT: The best web interface I've found is http://logeion.uchicago.edu

Not a dictionary in the traditional sense, but I like it better.

Whitaker's Words

You can search by the root word or by one which has an ending affixed to it.

Thank you very much for posting! Thirdway's glossa is new to me. Not all the words could be found, nor the definitions easy to grasp (some are simply to detailed), yet the dictionary does help a lot.

Sodales Latin-English & English-Latin Dictionary (free software) - a very useful "tool dictionary".
You can select any word in any document format (web-pages, office documents, pdf-s etc) and translate it by simply pressing the dictionary's shortcut-key. Morphological analysis is also available.
