Are you after particular categories of software?

  Mad Boy 17:44 19 Jan 2003

no, i just wanto to see what people opinions are and what software they find to be the most useful really. Not important i guess

Mad Boy, after the operating system, I think every pc has to have an office suite, then to me the most important is a graphics package. I have CorelDraw 7. It cost an arm and a leg back in 1996, it is full of bugs, but I still find it indispensable.

After the o/s, word processor, database, spreadsheet, (Don't need to be top range)dictionary, knowledge base program of some sort, Route finder, DTP, (Publisher or Serif), anti virus, PS Pro, plus any printer/scanner/CD software you require.

I would sau after the OS a good anti virus, office suit and of course a good graphics package as mentioned serif pretty ok and not to expensive.

This got me thinking and it occurred to me that, after all the obvious things such as Operating System, Browser, Email client, Anti-virus/Firewall/Security, WP, DTP etc., the software I use most -- and find most useful -- is my Password Manager, AnyPassword ( click here ).
