    I simply cannot live without all of the listed necessities. And Windows XP isn't a program, it's a operating system. A platform for programs.

    I disagree. Operating systems ARE programs.

    A computer program (often simply called a program) is an example of computer software that prescribes the actions ("computations") that are to be carried out by a computer. Most programs consist of a loadable set of instructions which determines how the computer will react to user input when that program is running, i.e. when the instructions are 'loaded'.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Program_(computing)

    These instructions can't be loaded without an operating system to decode them to the processor.

    Your Wiki definition still defines an OS as a program.

    Furthermore, you are wrong about instruction not being capable of loading w/o an OS.

    I'm sorry that you're too young to remember a time before Windows, or any OS for that matter, but there used to be a time we could boot a program straight off of a floppy w/o an OS. There used to be a time where it was quite common to have to write your applications in machine code. No OS and no programming language.

    Even when you use an OS, you don't write a program "in Windows". You might write a program "for Windows," but you write it in a programming language. Windows is not a programming language, but a program written in a programming language. It is a shell. It is a program.

    I have one "category" that I can't live without and is essential to my everyday life - remote control software:
    Remote Desktop/Terminal Services
    and
    Putty/SSH/OpenSSH

    With those things and a root/administrator's password, I can rule the world.
