  • 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  • v. 1.3 beta - note that this release is over a year old and contains very out-of-date software.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

Kitchen Sink 1.1 Release

Major changes:
  • User interface cleanup (better icons, more intelligent folders)
  • Fixed a number of problems in the 1.0 version with missing, out-of-date, and broken files.  
  • Updated, added, and removed ~40 programs.
  • Dramatic CAFE update: A configuration to allow opening over 700 file types, enable only the "power" editors (OpenOffice and GIMP), or open any compressed file (including EXE / MSI files).
  • Shortcuts/Hotkeys added
Got a LOT of help from users Guiness and Vishnu on this release.  Big thanks to them.

will check it out, did you managed to sort out PStart and the problem involving selecting a group that would automatically open the files in that sub group.

No I still haven't and I'm increasingly worried that the Pstart developer isn't ever going to fix it or even update his/her software. The last update was more than a year ago but I can't stand any other software menu. If the developer has decided to walk away from the project, I'm going to start aggressively looking for alternatives before the next release.

Thanks for keeping on top of me about that, trying the latest release, and for all your help.

You're welcome. No need to thank me that much Folding Home :-P

If time permits (may be in a couple of days) I will email you a bunch of my thoughts regarding KSPF. And hearty congrats on getting the Content Distribution status on Mininova.
