I went with a friend and he bought a pc off the shelf
it is a basic system and has very little software.
my friend and his whole family have very little knowledge of the
workings of a pc.
they are in shock of the cost of this hardware, and do not want to spend
much for software.
I will go over to his home and set it up when it arrives.
my problem is that I can't find a list of software that a family should
have on a new pc. They do not have a tech in the family and I will
be the one that they will look to for programs
I know sharedholder has a ton on his web site...but either 4thgen or DWK had a
list or a link to some suggested lists for beginners that was freeware but did not
need a rocket scientist to interpret the programs, I tried "search" but I did not
find the article...sh and friends ,I do need your expertise in this
they do not have...believe it or not, no interest in games, or movies.
the reason they got this pc was oldest child coming home and wished to
talk to spouse overseas on internet.
I just need some ideas on what would be a good list of programs to install
that would be easy and would not require my intervention after I loaded
them on the pc.
