My life partner bathed my laptop in chocolate milk. I'm setting up my new laptop and I'm wondering what you guys install first thing?

My list includes:
Steam
Galaxy
Windows terminal
notepad++
python 3
pycharm
git
virtualbox
windows subsystem for linux/Debian
spotify
dosbox-x
7zip

Eventually I install office 365 and Visual studio.

List feels short. What do you guys bloat up your laptops with first thing.

Edit:
Also, any slick registry hacks or settings changes that make windows nicer to use?

the dotfiles/homedir git repo you have hosted elsewhere so you donít have to reconfigure poo poo like a chump

gnupg
pinentry-mac for entering your yubikeyís PIN
your .emacs.d git repo, with full use of use-package so things auto download when first started
emacs 27
your shell (I use zsh with zpresto)

LLVM
openjdk 16
Firefox
GOG
Stardew Valley
your various git repos for personal projects


Thatís it. If you have other stuff just delete it you donít need it

If some of these donít make sense because youíre not on Mac OS then gently caress off and get your poo poo together like a grown-rear end adult already, goddamn
