Windows Vista has thus far been a bit of an adventure in incompatability. A few hiccups along the way have prompted me to rebuild the machine (software style!) To that end I thought I would chronicle the OS software that I cannot live without.

  1. Firefox
  2. Open Office
  3. Filezilla – FTP Client
  4. Sharp Develop – .NET IDE

In addition to these “can’t be withouts” I added Eclipse, I have not ventured much into the world of Java but am keen to add it to my repetoire. After the last 18 months in C#, the transition should not be too great I hope.
