I hate installing applications especially when I install the same thing three or four times in a week. Why do I have to do that? Think about two friends asking me to reinstall their OS and setup everything as needed think about me having to install some program on my desktop and laptop. Fortunately it doesn't happen more than once or twice in a year but it's still too much for me. Soon I think I'll switch to something like winPenPack...

Coming from Italy but also available in English winPenPack is described by the people behind it as "a project that aims at collecting the most frequently used and most popular open source and free applications made portable so that they can be executed without installation from any USB Flash Drive or Hard Disk" and freely available to all those who need to work on multiple Windows-based computers or... simply want to carry all their favorite apps and their settings in the pocket! ;)

The already built packages available are these: 2 Gb Essential Game School Web and then another one but the last is also a bit different. Why different? Well the Personal package can be customized to perfectly suit your needs. Just take a look here and see how can this be done.

Since I don't want to waste my time and yours by dropping a list of programs available in winPenPack just get this PDF file and see for yourselves how many tools you'll get in the 2 Gb version. That's all folks enjoy this find and have a nice weekend! ;)
