I started developing Aranjepack during the fall of my 10th grade year. It started because my friends (and I) were reinstalling our operating system (Windows XP) every few days. We would test some bad piece of software and destroy a perfectly good installation of Windows. It quickly became apparent that we would not change the way we tested software, so the process of reinstallation needed to be sped up. Enter Aranjepack.
The very first official release was over a gigabyte and had every tool you could imagine. Over time, I've cleaned up the program list and streamlined the code, but I've tried never to lose sight of the goal: Making it faster to reinstall Windows. More Info »
More recently I've begun distributing Aranjepack online, and at about the same time Ninite crashed onto the scene with an automated online version. But the main feature Aranjepack still has over Ninite is that it works almost entirely without internet. Once you download it, you can pop it on a flash-drive and update or set-up an entire fleet of computers.
My hope is that by using Aranjepack, you decrease the amount of time you spend downloading applications onto freshly installed computers. If that happens, I have succeeded. Thanks for taking the time to read this, I hope it gives you a bit more insight into the `Why?` of Aranjepack.
