Chocolatey: Package Manager for Windows

While preparing Cikgu JN’s new laptop (refurbish Thinkpad T400), I have amazed that there is opensource package manager and some automation for Windows. The laptop come with Windows 7 Professional.

“Chocolatey is a package manager for Windows (like apt-get or yum but for Windows).”

Main application interface is command line, but also Chocolatey provide option to install nice graphical tool.

Below is some summary command:

choco install -y vlc
choco install -y firefox libreoffice gimp mame telegram sumatra-pdf chocolateygui
choco upgrade -y firefox
choco upgrade -y all
