Don't you hate installing all tools on a Windows-machine? All those little setups, installers, asking the same bullsh*t; what location and do you want a Toolbar for IE? Wouldn't it be great if you could apt-get under Windows? Write a simple batchfile to install all crap in one go on a fresh system? Well, there's already two applications that provide such a service under Windows.

 
That's what Chocolatey is good for Smile | :) Doesn't work for everything, and you are left with adding product keys to "buyware" apps, but it sure takes a lot of the pain out of package management. The simplest script to install a bunch of packages would look something like this [Powershell - I don't use cmd anymore]:
 //or load a list from a text, CSV or JSON file or whatever you wish
$apps = @("git", "SublimeText2", "GoogleChrome", "thunderbird", "skype", "VisualStudio2012Professional", "WHATEVER" )
$apps | %{ cinst $_ }
 
If you use Windows, use it to its fullest!
 
EDIT: D'Oh! | :doh: "Well, there's already two applications that provide such a service under Windows." - I should read fully before I reply. Well, leave this as an example of what you were saying.
