    New laptop base install image

    What do you include? For all teachers, regardless of subject.

    So far I have on my list:

    Antivirus
    MSOFFICE 2003 + ODF plugin
    OpenOffice
    FireFox
    Paint.NET
    InkScape (SVG editor)
    Foxit PDF viewer
    ActiveStudio3
    eXe (SCORM editor)
    VLC (to send the headteacher to jail and provide some useful codec)
    MacroMedia Studio 8
    Camstudio
    Audacity
    quicktime/realplayer alternative

    is this too much/not enough for a base install image. Any better ideas

    Do you actually put both on Quackers? PARSql and PARS.net. We started with .net so there would be no point putting both on, just wondered if you could and if there was a purpose.

    We started with PARSql and went to PARS.net about 1.5 years after.

    Non of the staff like PARS.net much, they all prefer PARSql, and so do i too. It loads faster is not as bloated and does not have a new release every week. There has been more than 50 updates since we put PARS.net on. So staff like to use the old one.
