Why NOT a "DC Desktop"? (Google has one)
« on: October 25, 2008, 10:36:59 PM »
Google has its Google Desktop sets of apps. Why not a coherent package of "DC Desktop" apps that include Autohotkey?

DC's coders do not lack for some seriously useful apps that we can recommend to others to install and use (as a single-download package of apps). And it doesn't have to be the kitchen sink approach; maybe a few apps to whet the appetite.

Just throwing this out there.

and my dcupdater tool could be used to provide an auto-installation and update checking for the different scripts.
