Software Installation







Random notes:

  1. “Above reproach.” Be sure you have a license for the software and understand that license. (Most licenses do not allow multiple users, there are very few “site” licenses, despite what people often say.)
  2. Software that isn’t for business use rarely belongs on an organization owned computer. (it would be good to ask permission first, rather than ask forgiveness)
  3. General best practice: if you didn’t specifically go to get a piece of software, don’t let something tell you that you need it. You tell your computer what it needs, not vice versa.
