The quickest way to configure your new laptop with your favourite free software

As the head of IT in our household, whenever we get a new computer my first task is to install all those FREE useful utilities and essential software tools that make modern computing fun. I’ve managed to get downloading multiple different software packages and then installation them down to a fine art. Aided by an increasingly long mental list of free software tools for improved browsing (Firefox and Chrome), PDF file creation (CutePDF), image manipulation (Paint.Net), telephony (Skype), ……….etc.
The only problem is this list of free and useful essential stuff keeps getting longer and longer. Especially when you add in those all important security tools like anti-virus (AVG), spyware (SpyBot) and malware (MalwareBytes) removers.
The bottom line is that this all takes time, searching the web and selecting all those individual separate downloads
Thankfully there is a really neat site out there Nitnite.com that makes this job a real breeze by packaging all these tools up in to one handy selection, download and automated installation interface.
As one commentator put it recently, even your granny can use it!
Selecting what you want couldn’t be easier, just click a few check boxes and the software you require, optimised for either 32 or 64 bit versions of Windows 7, or Linux are packaged up and installed in a few clicks.
