Whats a good Cocktail?

John_4
So where I work we use what we call the Cocktail when we reinstall an operating system, or just when we build a system, and we are trying to make it the best group of software we can get, I will list all of the things we use and why we use them, and if you have anything you think we should change or if there is something out there that you don't think I don't know about PLEASE post!! (all software in our cocktail is FREEWARE)

1. Mozilla Firefox - Internet Browsing
2. Adobe Reader/Player - Self Explanatory
3. OpenOffice - Free MS Word
4. VLC Media Player - the codec/good player
5. AVG - Anti Virus
6. ADAWARE - Anti Adaware
7. Spybot - Anti Spyware
8. Malwarebytes - antimalware/scan and remove viruses

Once again if you know of any other good things, please post!!

Acronyms?

In any event you're still wrong - an acronym is an abbreviation that forms into a word like:

RAF ~ Royal Air Force (pronounced RAFF)

or

LASER ~ Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation

or

SCUBA ~ Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus

Regrettably 'J&B' or 'JW' do not form words so do not qualify as acronyms, or even acromyns (whatever they are).


My favourite tipple, as most of the peers here are aware of is the gloriously peaty flavoured LAPHROAIG with no ice, just a splash of water. :)
