Don't have the money for Camtasia, but still interested in doing screencasts?

Other tools for doing screencasts are listed below. I've indicated whether they are free or not and whether they are mac or pc software. If you are very interested in screencasting you may wish to use one of these other tools as many of them offer much more functionality and options than Jing. There may be other options out there that will work as well, these are just the major ones that I know are in use.
