Not sure if anyone would be interested in this at all, but here’s the software I’m using as of Jan 2013:
- Windows 8 — I have this on my primary desktop and also a Samsung Series 7 Slate. It’s nowhere near as bad as you’ve heard. It’s quite good in fact. On the Slate, the new “modern” interface Microsoft has developed is excellent. It really is designed as a touch-first UI, so using the new interface on a keyboard/mouse desktop takes a little getting used to. But on a tablet, it’s great, and its design beats any Android device I’ve seen and is arguably superior to the iPad. On the desktop, the Windows 8 desktop mode is basically Windows 7 plus more speed and other various improvements.
- I’m still using my Amazon Kindle Fire that I reviewed over a year ago. It’s great for reading books.
- I’ve switched from using Google as my primary web search to Bing. I just like it better. You might too, find out and see.
- I use Illium eWallet to store my passwords and other data. I’m still using the desktop version.
- The Bat! is still how I prefer to do email. There is no suitable “cloud” replacement that I have found yet.
- I am using Delphi XE3 for development.
- I recently upgraded to Adobe Lightroom 4 for my camera work, but I am still using CS5 for Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and Illustrator.
- I use NextGen Reader on Windows 8 and my Windows Phone 7.5 to keep up with my news feeds.
That’s the main stuff.
