Google Pack

I just stumbled across the as-yet-unheralded Google Pack, a free bundle of 13 excellent software programs.*

Included in the pack is a free 6-month subscription to Symantec Antivirus. While I don't know about any attached strings, free-as-in-beer antivirus subscriptions are good in my book.

Google doesn't replace any of the included programs if you've already got them; however, it provides the latest version if you have an older one.

* I realize calling RealPlayer excellent might be a bit of a stretch, but I consider its averageness offset by the loveliness of Trillian and Ad-Aware.
