To finish my post, here is the software's description by the developpers :
Quote:
The easiest way to get apps.

1. Pick the apps you want.
2. Start your customized installer.
3. You're done!

Ninite works in the background 100% hands-free.

We install apps with default settings and
say "no" to browser toolbars and other junk.

All we do is install the apps you choose.
Not even Ninite is installed.

Want to see how it works? Read a step-by-step
walkthrough at How-To Geek or Simple Help.

When it was in private beta, Ninite was called Volery.

Probably but not sure. I can't say because :
1. I haven't really tried it since I don't plan to make a clean install anytime soon until I get my copy of Windows 7 RTM.
2. I don't use 64-bits.

But, the best way to find out is to try it.

According to this, not quite yet. Look at the end of the article.

I just tried this out on a box at work and it worked very nicely. Certainly saved me a little bit of time.

Yeah, I found out about this program from a LifeHacker post. Once they get 64-bit programs involved, this thing will be a lifesaver for me.

I feel another reformat and reinstall coming on.
