Lies. There's a "lite" version, a "full" version, and a "bundle" version (which comes with a crappy song).

"Lite" has basically nothing, "Full" has various junk included, and I haven't tried "Bundle". Or did they change it recently?

They have this thing called a "custom install" for a reason, you know. It lets you look and say "Hey, I really don't want that *insert annoying "feature" here* installed".

Looks like they've discontinued "lite". Now it's just "free" (and the bundle one; woohoo, one free MP3) and "pro"... Last I checked, you can disable almost everything in the installer, if you want to take that route.

Naturally, I'd still recommend it. That's mainly because of the sheer number of plugins available for it, though...

Yes, you can disable it, but the very fact that it's there makes me worry. How long until you can't?

Anyway since this stuff now has a host again, have some programs of mine. Hopefully the connection doesn't flake out.

Launchy (Thread) is a nice and fast launcher app (it stays out of the way, too.)

And why hasn't CDex gotten any love yet?

Synergy is my latest, and possibly one of the greatest, piece of freeware I've downloaded. It lets me share my mouse and keyboard between my laptop and my desktop, exactly like a dual-monitor setup. It is pure awesome + useful.

I am I a hurry, so I don't have time for a link to it.

Belarc Advisor is a wicked awesome (&trade that builds a report of installed software and hardware, and a good bit more.

Interesting. Looks like it could be useful, installing.
...
Apparently it likes Firefox or something, because it opened itself with that, instead of using Opera (which is set as default browser).
Oh well.

Bulk Rename Utility.

Powerful rename utility. Works great when you have to rename a bunch of .MD (Mungyodance) files to .SM (StepMania) files when every .MD file is in its own directory. Took CPU 2 hours to do it manually. Took me 5 seconds of processing and about 10 minutes of figuring out the interface with the help file. Many will probably look at it and go 'wtf do I do???' so check the help directory. Very versatile.

Dexpot because I'm a sucker for virtual desktop implementations that don't suck so much ass

I'm saying this since 95% of the implementations suck ass on Windows. Period.

Speaking of window management sorts of things, I find Taskbar Shuffle to be extremely useful. All it really does is let you drag and drop taskbar items to where you want them, and also lets you close a window by middle-clicking on it in the taskbar.

I find it handy.

WTF? A "rearrange the taskbar" app that actually works?

I don't suppose there are apps that let you manually group taskbar items? Like how if you open a bunch of the same type of window, Windows will by default put them all under one button. I'd really like to be able to have that off, but manually combine buttons instead.

cdrtfe (cdrtools frontend) - write CD's, DVD's, write/rip ISO's, anything, without Nero's bloat

Miranda IM - open source AIM/MSN/ICQ/Yahoo/etc. client, plugin based and very small (switched to that when my copy of Trillian 2 stopped working)

Also nice to see a batch renamer that isn't 11MB like the one I had

hmm... Hard to say since most of my software is shareware obtained for free...

I'll say:

1. Firefox
2. Filezilla
3. VLC Media Player
4. Wordpad

Pretty lame but oh well...
