Slashdot is currently asking "What are the first 10 programs you would install on a Windows machine?"

Given that I've gotten more and more familar with this list as of late, here's my list of the first 10 programs I would (and do) install on a spanking new Windows install, in order:

  1. Mozilla Firefox
  2. WinZip
  3. Mozilla Thunderbird
  4. Winamp 2.x
  5. EditPad Lite
  6. WinMX
  7. Microsoft Office
  8. Adobe Photoshop
  9. AOL Instant Messenger
  10. Lavasoft Ad-aware

It should be noted that WinZip only appears as high as it does because I am used to not having an installer for Mozilla Thunderbird.
