General Software Discussion / Re: Must-have Windows Programs
« on: December 23, 2009, 08:11 PM »
Applications I couldn't live without:

Web browser: Mozilla Firefox
File sharing: eMule AnalyZZUL
Instant Messaging: Miranda IM
IRC client: Gamers.IRC (well, I'm in the team, so I actually should use it, too)
Audio player: Winamp
Image viewer: IrfanView

All the other stuff I use, including my mail client and my chosen text editors, are not an actual "must-have" for me, I could easily go with alternatives...

 :Thmbsup:

Well, just for completion, these are my beloved other ones:

Text editors: Notepad++, Vim  :-*
E-Mail: Mozilla Thunderbird (unless I manage to know The Bat! better)
Video player: Media Player Classic Home Cinema
Writing documents and stuff: OpenOffice.org
Controlling Windows: ac'tivAid
Task manager: Process Explorer
Version control: TortoiseSVN, CommitMonitor

Not much platform-independent stuff, I know... but this is not a criterion for me.  :D

I use a real bunch of other applications not fitting into any of the categories above. I just think "must-have" is not "I always had it and it is quite useless for my typical PC usage but I love it".

 ;D

We could as well start a new topic, as a similar discussion ("what is a programming language?") was quite successful recently.  :D

I would when it's being used to 'process' words.
Editing text is processing words.

Same goes for EMACS.
Pah, Emacs.

(We're starting to get seriously off topic here BTW! :tellme:)
You started by proposing a text editor. :P

I didn't know it wasn't made for writing letters though.
From the WriteMonkey website:
Zenware for full screen distraction free creative writing.

Made for writing contests AFAIK. Of course you can edit every kind of text in it...

Would you say Vim is a word processor then, too?

Wikipedia:
Word processing typically implies the presence of text manipulation functions that extend beyond a basic ability to enter and change text (...)

Stay away from phpBB, it's had too many exploits.
phpBB 3 doesn't have too many of them. milw0rm.com lists a few for SMF, too, so what?

I like phpBB. :)

Oh well, MS Office is not cheap either, and it has a, uhm ..., not too well designed GUI.

Ubuntu is not "Linux for everyone", SuSE is ... Ubuntu is more like "Debian for hype machinists"...

The Bat! displays unread folders & messages in bold by default.
Hm, you are obviously right. Weird that I missed this.  :o
Thanks.

And for those who want to buy The Bat!...don't forget the discount link here in the forum will save you approx. 50%.
Yet another thanks. I'll wait for the end of the trial period and make a decision then ...  :D

(Getting a bit off-topic here, sorry for that.)

The Bat! is, at least, more resource-friendly than Thunderbird. However I haven't managed to find out yet how (if?) to display unread folders in bold... the only thing that keeps me away from replacing Thunderbird 3 as my default mail client.
(Thunderbird 3 rocks, anyway. So probably does Eudora... but who needs another Postbox?)

I am currently trying some mail clients (currently being stuck between Thunderbird 3, The Bat! and re-alpine), but Eudora was never my client of choice. Don't know why...  :)

I wonder if it actually makes sense to further develop this one.  :)

In fact, most forum software can be turned into a social network. bbPress for Wordpress is another one...

From this thread I'd prefer elgg. ;)

Does that depend on the chosen font? For me there's nothing special.

Avira has always been bad about false positives. It's always been good about detecting the bad stuff, but I have never in good conscience been able to recommend it due to the false positives.
Confirmed.

Maybe this one is of any interest here. "Many false alarms" is a no-go for a virus scanner IMO.

Most people I know with an eminent amount of RAM don't use it for doing more productive stuff, they just fill it with useless gimmicks "because it's there".

2074
Ah, yes, 8 GB RAM. 6 of those will never be used anyway, but who cares ...  ;D

End users don't need 64 bit yet. Never seen a home user having to work with files of that size.
(So most things he does is whinging in boards "why does my application not start in 64 bit mode?" ...)
