The free version doesn't do site surveys.

Does anyone know of a similar one for Windows? I know this is a Mac app, but not all of us are lucky enough to have a Mac yet :)

Here is a similar product for Windows: Small PassMark WirelessMon iconPassMark WirelessMon

It does a lot of cool stuff. I like NetSpot's maps better, but this has a lot of useful features. It has a free 30-day trial, so you can try it out (I actually haven't).
