What would be the first thing(s) you
load on a new system?
Just got a new laptop, a Toshiba Satellite, Intel i7 CPU, Nvidia GT540M GPU, 6G RAM, ~700G HD. While I need to get it active, I'm not in a time crunch - an unusual situation for me
Since time is not hypercritical this time around, I intend to plan my initial installs. That got me to wondering what others consider essential for system initialization. (I will
disable UAC. Single user, allegedly knowledgeable, I just don't feel a need for it, although I could be persuaded otherwise.) I'll partition the drive, make ~200-250 G C:\ for the OS, the rest for an E:\ data drive.
My initial load will be
- Comodo & Revo install trackers
- CintaNotes (for quick tagable notes)
- Microsoft Security Essentials
- Comodo firewall (maybe, haven't decided yet )
- Libre Office (don't use it much, but need to have it handy)
- Karen Kenworthy's Directory Printer
- Swift To-Do List
- All My Notes (mostly for some history notes and for avoidance of past foibles)
- RollBackRX (adjunct to system restore points
Other stuff will come to mind, but that's my initial list. I haven't decided whether to install imaging/backup software, since recent experience has show. me a certain futility in that venue. I'm also uncertain as to graphics software: needs to be something vector capable.
As mentioned, though, I'm curious what you
would consider an initial load? Maybe you can cure me of some bad habits
Meant to ask what you use for a software kvm. I was not particularly happy with MaxiVista, had a bit of trouble getting Synergy+ to work, so I've been using Input Director - it works, kinda, sorta. Maybe I need to go back and hammer on Synergy+? Or is there something else out there that I've just not seen?
