The whole thing feels clean and fast and amazing!
Now you have your freedom and can use your computer! YAY!
But wait, you don't have any of your favorite applications!
OH GOD, YOU HAVE TO USE INTERNET EXPLORER!
Fear not, let me show you the easiest way to get the best programs for Windows installed in one easy step. Open internet explorer for the one and only time it will ever be used...
Ninite is the auto-install program that god uses to spruce up a new universe after a big-bang. Go to the Ninite page and select the programs that you want installed by checking the boxes near their names. You do not need to select redundant programs, like both fox it reader and sumatraPDF, instead just pick sumatraPDF; its better and you only need one!
My suggested list of programs that you should choose:
iTunes - (if you have an iOS device)
Winamp - (if you do not have an iOS device)
This is going to give you a wide range of functionality! There is little else that you need to install after this! Windows should be blazing fast and you should have apps to cover almost any situation.
Add and Remove programs to remove Internet Explorer! Seriously, use chrome or at least firefox!
