Must-have personal desktop apps, according to Hal 9000

Bare Desktop

We asked TechRepublic member Hal 9000 about his favorite applications, and he responded with a list of personal desktop apps that he uses the most.

According to Hal 9000, "Here is my bare Desktop. I do use all of those icons - otherwise, they would have been removed ages ago. However, the Lime Wire is only for one customer, so I can help him through his issues. It isn't something that I really like."
