VMWare rocks. But will also burn a hole through your pocket. Nope. Sorry, I used to use this for work. We have yet to find an equal replacement.The Khan Artist said:Well, it didn't take long to realize that QEMU just can't replace VMWare
Or buy a writer that has Nero. I own Nero legally that way.The Khan Artist said:Nero - I'm going to try out CDBurnerXP. It sounds like it might do the job.
I can pop you a link to a site that has a truckload of the stuff. Maybe you can just browse through them?The Khan Artist said:AnyDVD and Nero Recode - Although these provide, IMO, a superior solution, I can use DVD Decrypter and DVDShrink
Why do you have multiple burning apps? I used to use 2, but I eventually just stuck to Nero.The Khan Artist said:BlindWrite - There probably isn't a good free replacement for this. I'll probably just buy this one.
I think buying it is a good idea. I don't remember it being too expensive.The Khan Artist said:EVEREST - I'll probably just buy this one, as well.
OK enough. Though OpenOffice ain't so bad.The Khan Artist said:Acrobat Pro - PDF Creator and the non-free-but-significantly-cheaper FoxIt PDF Editor should replace this for my needs
You might want to consider spending for an AV. I used to be an Anti Virus Engineer, and I tell you, the free ones just don't cut it. If you're afraid of the big time threats, they do somewhat OK, but against the other 95%....The Khan Artist said:NOD32 - I know about AVG and Avast, but I just might buy this one. I haven't tried Avast yet, so I'm still undecided.
Kaspersky's damn good (although a bit trigger-happy). Sophos comes next (Not as good in detection, but still pretty good).
Defrag using the packaged defrag tool, then just leave it during the night. Unless, you need the spiffy features.The Khan Artist said:O&O Defrag - I only defrag once every two or three months, and I can't say if I notice the speed difference or not. Are there any good free defrag apps?
Should be in the link, should you want it. I can't post it since it might contain questionable content.The Khan Artist said:TMPGEnc DVD Author - I use it solely for making DVD menus.
