Now there's a giant controller for those that like buttons! The key overlays are cool too...

Microsoft's Free AV App May Be a Non-Starter

ssjx Would be good if it was forced via Windows Update (251 comments) computers that don't have any antivirus software on. Same with Defender too... Although AVG and other free antivirus tools are pretty good, a lot of people never think about actually getting and installing them.

Google Open Sources Updater

ssjx Re:Would rather they fix it instead. (174 comments)

I didn't say i actually liked Apple Update just that it was better than Googles :)

I don't like being recommended iTunes or Quicktime, my main point was that it is easy to remove via Add/Remove and that it is does appear in the Scheduled Tasks.

Most (all?) of the separate update programs (google, apple, java, adobe) are pains.

Google Open Sources Updater

ssjx Would rather they fix it instead. (174 comments)

"Unfortunately, the service has many bugs, it can't be disabled unless you uninstall all the applications that use it and there are some privacy issues"

I would prefer it if they fixed Google Update instead of releasing the source. Making it optional and easy to remove would be a good start. Amazingly Apple Update works better and most Apple software on windows, besides Safari, is lousy...

Favorite text editor?

ssjx PSPad for windows (1131 comments)

PSPad for windows is very good and i don't think has been mentioned yet. As well as hightlighting, it has a lot of other handy tools such as spellchecker, colour picker, code explorer and hex editting.

Open Source Killing Commercial Developer Tools

ssjx Who? (742 comments)

I've never heard of these people but giving away free versions is more likely to get people buying full versions. I would think tools is the one area where companies can make money, Adobes tools for Flash spring to mind...
