We've all been there. After building a Windows box and installing drivers it's the ritual of downloading the latest versions of all your essential software and clicking next, next, I agree, finish for about an hour. Not anymore, Ninite will do it all in two clicks.
Ninite is a software download and installation automation tool that supports a plethora of popular software. Simply browse to ninite.com, select which packages you want like Chrome, Skype, uTorrent, Teracopy, etc, and click Get Installer. Moments later you'll be downloading a customer installation script that will automate the entire process. Double-click and it will automatically download the latest versions in 32 or 64 bit and install them to your machine without stopping for a single prompt.
It's fast, simple, free and saves a bundle of time so we love it. While the Linux crowd has been enjoying yum and apt, it's about time something came along for the Windows side.
There is a paid pro version that comes with a $20/mo subscription fee and includes advanced features like offline installers, caching and silent installation. We think it could be handy for IT pros handling large networks, however it's not going to compete with pushing packages via group policies.
