Install multiple programs at once with Ninite [Win]
Under Ubuntu we have
apt-get. Moreover, after a fresh installation we already have lots of pre-installed programs. But after installing a Windows box, what do we have? An unusable Internet Explorer…
Thank God, there is an excellent service called Ninite to help us. It contains lots of useful and free software grouped in categories. The programs are always the latest versions. Just choose what you need and download the installer which is about 200K. Launch it and it will download and install all the selected programs in just a few minutes. It doesn’t ask any questions, it will install everything with the default options. It uses threads, so while installing a software it is downloading the next one. Installing 10 programs takes no more than 10 minutes. Imagine how much time it would require if you should install all these programs manually… Ninite saves lots of time.
If you just finished installing your Windows, start IE and visit http://ninite.com immediately! Make sure that Firefox is in the list :)
