    Moved to misc forum... we generally do not allow software / downloads as freebie posts. Do you have a link to this?

    This Google pack has been available for at least a year.

    I think all the software in the pack is free anyway, Picasa certainly is, as is Firefox, RealPlayer, Adobe Reader and OpenOffice.

    I think Google have set this up as an "anti-Microsoft" pack, to show that you dont always need to use software from Microsoft when all this is available from Google.

    OK - I'll get my coat

    my laptop came with this pack, it's pretty good it automatically downloads (when you click ok) updates and new available software

    I would choose foxit over adobe reader and VLC player over Realplayer (use floola for ipods) as both those can be memory hogs, otherwise pretty good deal.

    Also Abiword is a good Word alternative (and openoffice has some cool stuff).

    Must check out foxit

    I would also recommend K-Lite Codec, installs a basic version of windows media player and loads of codecs do you can playy 99% of movie / video / music files and is not resourse hungry like quicktime or real player and you do not all the "other" stuff that such apps instal as well !
