As I get ready for another reformat of my laptop, I’ll take a moment to consider what software will be getting put back on.
Express Burn Disc Burning Software seems light and easy enough. I got it because it came preinstalled and had no drawbacks for putting an ISO on a DVD-R. I might just get a different disc burning program, though.
FL Studio 10 lets me turn the MIDIs I make into listenable audio tracks.
Skype is the only way I have to communicate with some people.
Spotify lets me listen to pretty much anything for free, and its organization is a fair bit better than YouTube. Plus I don’t have to deal with Chrome’s attempt at handling memory.
4k Video Downloader 4.2 is the only program I’ve ever found that will download Youtube playlists in a variety of formats without making a fuss.
Sumatra PDF is light and lets me read my ebooks and papers. I may seek out something with better highlights and annotation powers.
FileZilla lets me easily move things on and off my wobsite.
HydraIRC is a nice IRC client. That’s about the extent of what I would ask of it.
SimCity 3000 is a very fun game.
Pidgin covers basically all of the messaging protocols. Notably XMPP.
Adobe Illustrator CS6 is great for making vector graphics.
Process Blocker is good for when a process doesn’t seem to want to buzz off.
Adobe Photoshop CS6 is a fantastic photo editor.
VLC Media Player gets the job done for video viewing. And the keyboard controls are nice.
Notepad++ is my goto text editor. Which I use surprisingly often.
IrfanView is good for viewing images.
Audacity for audio editing.
Google Chrome because of ChromeCast.
Windirstat for keeping tabs on how much stuff is taking up space.
