    In praise of- Ninite

    I recently had to reformat a laptop running Windows 7 RC and re-install Vista to avoid the software time limits on the RC.

    I really wasn't looking forward to re-installing all the software I needed to make it a productive machine again so I was thrilled to come across Bulk installing software with Ninite | Enterprise | Real World Computing | PC Pro.

    I selected all the open software I wanted to use and run the executable it provided me with- it then downloaded and installed each item in turn.

    The total time to install twenty-four packages (including several large ones such as OO) was exactly twenty minutes, during which I had nothing more onerous to do than drink tea and talk to my wife.

    Obviously this doesn't remove the pain of moving files and settings between machines but it did leave me with a machine with everything I needed to work with the minimum of time and effort.
