For those talking about Dust514 as a possible second and break, yes it is free and went open beta today. The game is quite a bit of fun and has a decent progression to it similar to the EVE Online system. But I think Dust514 will make a nice compliment to any MMO people are playing.
As for multiple MMOs at the same time, EVE Online has always been one I've kept playing even when trying others such as FFXI, FFXIV (for the VERY SHORT time I played), Currently playing Dust514 as well, SWTOR, WoW (sadly in my younger years). Gah there are a not of other MMOs I've played too.
