Another reply to be sure that no WINDOWS user missed it!!!!

The first thing that a windows user should install to gain a LOT of time installing and updating software:

And the list of all the available software

After, you could install your other software using chocolatey ;) (even using a bat script!)

First and mandatory, install chocolatey to easily and quickly install most of these software :

GitExtensions (better than Tortoise Git) or sourcetree
P4merge (one of the best merge software)
ConsoleZ (a descent console for windows)
sumatrapdf (quickest pdf reader)
clover (tabs in file manager)
speedcrunch (a good calc)
greenshot (screenshots)
Firefox ...

And do a bat file to install automatically all that with chocolatey!!!!!

Bullshit! Your economic growth is only linked to the quantity of energy introduced in your economy (Ask a good physician!). Economists and politics did a good job at hiding that to cheat other people. If they don't understand that, they are bad economists/politics!!!

You are only taking information that goes the cynical sens you want to give to your comment. Perhaps you should take the date of february 2007. The date of the release of the Direct3D 10 sdk. And then, taking into account some transition months to use this sdk, you see that games using this version is *only* 6 years old (And I'm pretty sure that games using this version was out 1 or 2 years after!). So, for those that are not fanatics and don't absolutely need the LAST games, that should be a first good step!
