ddownloads, one-stop list of popular software, simplified install.


Like ninite, but with a larger offering. Thoughts?
Is this advisable? I use ninite, and am happy with it. But after years on linux, every step that saves me from manually having to update software is welcome.

It all comes down to who you trust to provide you with this type of service.

UK PCAdvisor did a review and seemed to like it. A similar review (which seems to be a condensed version of what was posted on PCAdvisor) was posted on PC World.

I probably wouldn't want to try it out on my main (or on a mission critical) PC at this point since the reviews indicate there are still some rough edges to it.

But it looks like something that might be be worth watching and possibly experimenting with on a VM.

I already live inside a virtual machine, so this is not as risky as I thought then.
Great. Thanks for the feedback.
