do I need all the runtimes?

In preparation for my new PC, I'm downloading the ninite pack where you can select which things you want and so far I got
firefox, itunes, CCCP, java, gimp, and steam

do I need all those other run times though? like silverlight, .NET, Air, and Shockwave? Also what burning software from the ninite list would you guys pick? I was thinking of just imgburn, but are any of the others any good?

the grotesquely bloated dotnet is pretty much a requirement these days

imgburn is ok for basic burning tasks

foobar is good for audio, MPC for video (VLC is overrated)

itunes is an obscenity of bloatedness

I don't need silverlight and the others though?

Only install Java, Silverlight, the .NET framework, Air and Shockwave if you know you need them. Otherwise, skip.
