1/ ROMSOFT.- I have 2 Gb of freeware apps identified and tried as 'portable' in terms of ability to run in another disc without installation, part of them comming from the TPFC links. This concept is slightly different to the one used in TPFC to judge the portability of an application. I am focusing more in the capacity to run a program in different computers than in assure that the program does not writtes to the registry. On the other hand I am interested in programs which can run from a CDRom (I told them ROMSOft) for its ability to keep untouched and preserved themselves from infections, etc.
To this 2 Gb of 'single' apps I have to add OpenOffice and some other collections produced by someone else. My collection is allways divided into 5 different groups related to tasks they can perform:
-EDIT (documents edition)
-IMAGE (bitmaps or vectorial edition)
-PIM (including agenda, contacts, calculators, databases, encryption, browsers)
-PLAY (stream watching and editing, games, educational, simulators)
-SYSTEM (utilities to tunning, editing and mounting ISOs, checking, recovering).
2/ BONSAI.- I maintain a smaller selection of 300 Gb from ROMSoft, the most efficient apps in terms of powerfull utility related to small size, which is a subset of the big collection that I name 'BONSAI'. This is the size I have voted in the poll.
For dayly use I see that I need just 60 Gb out of BONSAI (about 40 apps).
