Should Have Software
I posted last week the list of software I installed in wave 1. Here is the software I have had to install since then. I guess these are the “should have software” 🙂
- Axialis Icon Workshop
- Google Earth – I really only downloaded this because I wanted to see Santa.
- Google Desktop – I downloaded this because there was a new version out. The UI is incredibly improved over the last version. No need to wait for Vista’s sidebar – Google’s Desktop gives you the sidebar running on Windows XP. To be fair, though, I haven’t been a big fan of either the Microsoft or Google offering. This version is much better, but unless you’ve got dual monitors like me, I suspect you won’t want to give up the precious screen real estate. To see the coolest feature ever, though, be sure to install and hit ctrl-ctrl (control key twice). Fantastic!
- Yahoo Toolbar – I really have no idea how this got on my system. Those Yahoo folk are tricky!
