Beyond Compare 2

We have been using a nice file comparison tool at work (since we don't run UNIX). It is called Beyond Compare 2 and is available for free download and trial from Scooter Software.
In addition to a GUI for visualizing the similarities and/or differences BC2 has several add-on tools that gives it a great deal more functionality. I am using it to pretty print XML, to sort, and to convert Microsoft and Adobe proprietary files into simple ASCII text.
