Ninite – Making new PC set-up simple
With more people tempted to buy a new PC, now that Windows 7 has launched, I thought it might be of interest to look at a service that eases PC set-up.
Whenever you go to set-up a new PC, you have the chore of loading the (digital) software that let’s you run the apps you use every day.
Ninite.com have a feee online serrvice that allows you to select the applicatinos you wish to install and then set them all up easily.
The apps supported on their list cover most of your needs. But there are a couple of noticable exceptions (e.g. Internet Explorer, Adobe Air and Last.FM – although the latest version, IE8, has such poor performance in loading new tabs and delays switching between them that I wouldn’t bother with it myself).
Still, with the install list this extensive, you’ll soon find your new PC is up, running and fully loaded.
Ninite is compatible with XP, Vista and Windows 7. Hopefully a Mac version will appear soon.
