Drinkin' coffee with windows-get

If you are running Windows on your PC you will need to reinstall it once in a while if you want it to perform decently. After a reinstall you will probably spend at least a day downloading files and clicking through installers. This nightmare is over now. Install windows-get and you will be drinkin' coffee on the balcony while your computer downloads and installs all the software you need. Just as if you were running apt on a Debian system.

UPDATE: Get a list of applications that install silently using win-get here.

To install an application silently (without interaction) from this list do
win-get sinstall appname
(e.g. "win-get sinstall skype" to install skype)
- If no silent install option is available win-get will run the GUI installer.
