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

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