Another day another XP install..

While I had to do another Windows XP SP3 install today for a client of mine I was given the opportunity to kit it out with software that I would recommend.

So I thought I would take the time to blog about the line up for this system;

* FireFox3 with Flash plugin - http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/
* Thunderbird - http://www.mozilla.com/thunderbird/
* ClamAV (win32) - http://www.clamwin.com/
* InfraRecord - http://infrarecorder.sourceforge.net/
* VLC - http://www.videolan.org/
* OpenOffice 2.4.1 - http://www.openoffice.org/

Quite good really, everything one would like from a basic setup and all the above software is free to share and use, seems to run alright too.

I would also recommend JRE6u6 and Sun DowloadManager.

Moreover Notepad++, GIMP, Peazip (or 7zip) and SumatraPDF would be good too.

Sunbird is coming along nicely for calendaring, can use a shared calendar that is quite suitable for small offices.
