One of my favorite Windows programs is Ninite. It’s free and it has changed my life. With Ninite, I am able to cut hours off my reinstallation time whenever I format my disk. Let me explain.
Ninite is free — a service that allows you to select from the most common freeware applications available. Select and download a little installer that manages the download and installation of each selected program. Ninite doesn’t install toolbars or other ad supported junk, either. It’s simply the most effective, efficient way of setting up your computer I know of.
Even better, save the customized installer and use it to update programs. It won’t download programs that don’t need installation or updating, which saves time and bandwidth.
Give it a try. Visit Ninite.com and see what you think. Feel free to leave your opinions in the comment section below.
how cool is that!?!?
reminds me of Titanium for Android
It’s pretty cool. My favorite feature is the fact it updates. I just leave the installer on my desktop and run it once a week. If I was really efficient I’d set a schedule to it!
I am going to set a schedule to mine right now. Good tip! hen
There is Ninite for Linux now actually…however I can’t get it to work on Ubuntu for some reason.
Anyway, I use Ninite ALL the time!
It’s funny (to me) that there’s NiNite for Linux and a version of apt-get for Windows.
[…] If you’re installing a lot of free or Open Source programs, anyway, definitely consider using Ninite.com. Ninite freeware makes the process so much […]
