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  • v. 1.3 beta - note that this release is over a year old and contains very out-of-date software.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

Possible future solution to Kitchen Sink

1. Although somewhat down the road, a discussion over at Nozavi's Apps has yielded interesting possibilities including:
  • An application updater
  • A way to include PortableApps programs without having to host the source code.
  • Can re-include Firefox!
2. I've started to seriously consider making the Kitchen Sink into a non-GPL software distribution.  I loathe this idea, but the increasing selection of software from PortableFreeware.com and the lack of an ability to download the best and brightest all in one file is very troubling.  GPL authors who put their source code front and center will of course be included (like BleachBit!).  I'll probably drop the source code into the distro in a separate 7z file included in the distro.
