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.
