Universal installer

it would be nice, if somebody can develop universal installer ie one installer which install all the free and open source software like

all 5 browsers ie chrome, IE, FF, Safari, Opera
adobe flash
adobe acrobat reader
Open office
avg anitvirus
printer/scaner drivers
wordweb free dictionary

yesterday my friend wifi adapter stopped working and i had to reinstall Windows 7 on his laptop, it took me 5 hours to install all the software plus ms office 2007 except open office, opera and FF, Safari

A number of problems with this:
1. Who chooses which applications? Most members of this forum would have a different list.
2. There are a number of difficult technical problems. Creating an installer for multiple applications is problematic at best.
3. I am sure that most of the producers of these applications would object and consider it illegal.

Not going to happen.

For reinstalling windows and keeping software there is Repair Install and this:

Windows 7 Installation - Transfer to a New Computer

System Preparation Tool - Use to Customize Windows

Otherwise, what derekimo suggested is a great option as well if you have a fresh installation (and don't want to do the above) with the programs you want to install all in a simple manner.
