      Ninite is the easiest way to install software. Pick the apps you want, and the Ninite installer will download and install all of your selected apps at once, automatically. It is 100% hands-free; Ninite automatically rejects browser toolbars and other prepackaged junk.
      Ninite vs scoop opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      prometheus720 The free version of Ninite: * Cannot keep your apps up to date * Cannot install more than a handful of apps * Cannot be used or installed in command-line interface * Cannot be used to curate apps in a custom repository Ninite is the baby version of choco or scoop. Ninite Pro may be different, and I can see how it might be useful at scale. However, free Ninite is not suitable for normal users. Normal users should try Chocholatey-GUI.

      pros, cons and recent comments
      prometheus720 Chocolatey is the closest thing to scoop. Chocolatey-GUI allows users to install applications from what looks like a primitive app store, which makes it more accessible to users. If something bothers you about scoop, try choco.
