What I need to work with Windows

Yes, I do use Windows. XP and 7, depending on the hardware.

So what software and services do I bring along for the ride?

  • Notepad++
  • IrfanView
  • Firefox
  • Thunderbird
  • FileZilla
  • Dropbox
  • Avast! Free Antivirus
  • Google Chrome
  • Pidgin
  • GIMP
  • Inkscape
  • Audacity

I'll write more about each of these applications in the future. They're sort of in order of most valuable to least. The Notepad++ text editor and IrfanView image viewer/editor are definitely my top 2 applications in Windows.
