Hi all

JUst had a throught. Inregards to programs for Reacto OS. How about adding free programs for example
medla player - Real player
net meeting - oovoo
remote access - crossloop
defrag - auslogic defrag ( or any other free program)

7 zip
pea zip

Add extra like dock object ( simlar to brand name PC That add small utilites)

From our perspective it's better that the user go and install apps they themselves want than force them to remove apps they did not want.

darren, additional programs may not become part of the ReactOS ISO, but you can download a lot of them through the ReactOS Application Manager present in default installation. For needs you provided, there is already 7-zip for compressing and SMPlayer for multimedia, both ready to one-click download. Remote access and defrag first need support from OS before the apps start working (and can be added to the Applications Manager).
