Speaking of reinstalling, what applications do you have to have on your computer?
My list, in no particular order:
- Mozilla Firefox with Mouse Gestures add-on
I’m used to it, Chrome installs per user instead of per computer which irritates me and has no mouse gestures, Safari also has no mouse gestures that I know of — please correct me if I’m wrong, cos it is the prettiest, and I dunno, I never got used to Opera.
- Thunderbird with Lightning add-on
Email + Calendar with google calendar sync and no Outlook
- Symantec Endpoint Protection
For antivirus because it’s licensed by work. But I’ve heard good things about Microsoft Security Essentials, so I would try that if I needed one for free because I wouldn’t pay for antivirus at this point.
- Adobe Acrobat Reader
Not cos I like this program, cos I don’t. But I need to view pdfs sometimes, and the other viewers I’ve tried, like Foxit, didn’t always display everything correctly.
To make pdfs
For email notification and IM
3.5 has name tags! Very spiffy! And it’s easy to use.
- Flickr Uploadr
I need to upload photos.
- SSH Secure Shell
I need to find a replacement for this, so suggestions welcome.
For my iPod Shuffle.
- Adobe Flash Player
I don’t like this! But Flash is all over every restaurant’s site and I need it for YouTube, to name just two things!
- The Sims 3
I have a mild addiction. I blame Al and Julie cos they got the game for me (thanks guys!), but if I’m being truthful, I have been addicted to previous versions of the Sims, so I’m not sure I should really be blaming anyone. I try to only play on weekends, but sometimes I slip.
- Microsoft Office
For when my sister sends me spreadsheets of what beauty products she’s buying and says I can add on what I want. :D
That’s all I can think of for now. Any recommendations? What do y’all use? :)
