    Ninite

    Everybody knows that doing a fresh install of your computer can be very tedious, after Windows or whatever OS is installed, you have to install all your other software again, which is often more than 20 programs, many of them being basic stuff you use every day, meaning Firefox, VLC, IrfanView, Avast, Java...

    Ninite.com is a site that takes that task away from you, by only going to their site and showing you all the basic software there is on one page. You simply tick the boxes of the programs you want to install, and then it does the job for you, simple and easy.

    Now that is cool, and is something that will be very handy in the future.

    Thanks for the info.

    Looks interesting. I will remember that for the future. Though I do now have just about everything I want installed on my Windows XP ().

    I tend to use Linux most of the time now though and getting software installed (if it isn't already ) is just a case of using the package manager.

    Careful Steve... you are in danger of catching up with modern computing at this rate! XP is only 9 years old after all. Although remember to update it to Service Pack 3 as it fixes a lot of stuff and reconfigures the OS a great deal compared to the original XP release, making it actually quite a stable and robust OS.
