[This project has been discontinued due to license compliance issues. Thanks everyone who assisted with your ideas and feedback.]


  • What is this? - this was a project dedicated to building an up-to-date collection of great, free portable software for easy installation and use.
  • What's in it? - list of included freeware
  • v. 1.3 beta - note that this release is over a year old and contains very out-of-date software. I haven't worked out how to solve licensing issues. Download

Other updates

  • Added around 50 more filetypes to CAFE from all across the Kitchen Sink.  Can now open 536 different file extensions!
  • The "shred" trick has been present in the software since the February '09 release, but I've expanded it.  Renaming a file with the ending ".xxxx", ".xxx", or ".wipe" makes it auto open with cybershredder and self-wipe just by double-clicking.  Here's the CAFE entries to make that happen:

  • Finally got the autorun tool to run correctly.  This is the autorun script that actually works that will go out in the next release:
ACTION = Kitchen Sink Freeware Collection
LABEL=Kitchen Sink Freeware Collection

  • Found out Keepass has an excellent password generator.  Currently evaluating whether this should replace the present software "Strong Password Generator".

Next step: put everything in a /data/ subdirectory except for a few necessary files.  Lots of work ahead.
