Google Pack



Google has announced Google Pack available for download It sounds as though there’s a nice bundle of Google (and non-google software) included (Google Desktop, Earth, Picasa, Toolbar for IE, Google Pack Screensaver, Acrobat reader, Norton Antivirus 6 month trial, AD-aware SE personal, firefox with google toolbar.) It sounds as though there is an update manager that can keep all the “google pack” components updated and there are rumors of other applications being made available in the not so distant future (OpenOffice for instance.)


All is available free. I can see this being a big plus especially if OpenOffice is included, it could make getting a decent suite of software installed on a new system pretty quick and easy, AND keep it updated fairly easily. Interesting.
