I got an e-zine this morning about a package that is downloads,
installs, and updates, a list of packages for you.
I fount LibreOffice 3.6.4 listed.
This statement is what worries me though:
"No Clicking Next, Next, Next
Ninite fully automates installers offscreen."
See what you think.
When I used Windows years ago I used to ninite quite frequently, it's
just a small installer that then pulls the individual installers and
then goes through them automatically, pretty functional.
What I do not like it the statements that makes me feel that I have no
control of how the packages are installed. I always do a custom
install of packages to make sure I only install things I want. For
LO, I make sure I install only the languages and dictionaries I want.
There are some packages that has a "default" of adding toolbars and
other things to other packages, like browsers, that are not acceptable
to my point of view.
It's extremely useful to build new Windows systems (ie mass installs).
It's not free open source though.
I never heard of this "Ninite" so I did not know about how much
"trust" I would give it.
Also, does Windows LO still need a JRE installed BEFORE it gets
installed? Use to be yes. If such a "auto install" system tries to
install LO with no JRE installed first, then problems. . . .
So don't use it. Use one of the free open source alternatives,
testit/file a bug report to help fix/test it:
That list included LibreOffice, Firefox, Thunderbird, and a few
Image/Graphics software, Then I add the security software that I prefer
That service does not include much of what I would add to a new system
or suggest to users for their systems.
