Alright, so after OS X it was Windows 7′s turn to sit on my desktop. I installed it after a lot of fiddling around though. I was not ready to install Windows 7 with a DVD so after searching a bit found out the solution to install Windows 7 from a USB Drive. I had some problems in the start but then AskVG’s trick worked. Anyways, Now I am writing this from my new Windows 7, but wondering what to install in this windows. Coming from Windows Vista’s background, I really don’t have any idea what to install. All I can think of is my list of programs that were installed in Windows Vista.
Now a big task ahead. I go on to Internet searching for some list of programs compatible with Windows 7. Basically I was searching for freeware programs to be installed. I already had my own list from Windows Vista but I was really not sure whether they all will be compatible with Windows 7 or not. So I go digging. Looking into forums, blogs and other users comments. Now have compiled the list of 20 programs that you must consider installing after Windows 7 installation. Don’t look for any other place just believe me it will definitely ease up your life. I am using Windows 7 x64 so most of the application listed below would be x64 bit compatible as well. Check out for their x64 version as well.
