I'm going to edit this question and put a bounty on it. How do you suggest I reword it?

About Number 2: Ideally, all links should be conencted to the vertices from the network node; however, in some occasions, you might have a link that spans an entire polygon, so the dummy link will end up being outside of the polygon

comment What free programs should every GIS user have installed?
Most of the mentioned tools revolve around GIS dev., rather than GIS tools that I haven't heard of but should've. For the most part and except for one or two niche programs, the listed tools here and in this other Q revolve around "Creating GIS", rather than "Using GIS". They're also tools that you should know about anyways if you were involved with another type of development or GIS. My last gripe is the disconnect between GIS Tools for different OSEs: Arc vs. Else.
