What a deal! If you haven’t tried Ninite for Windows apps, you are missing out on an easy way to get Windows software installed on your computer…now, apparently, the same is available for UbuntuLinux users!
Ninite Brings No-Hassle Bulk Installations to Linux: “If you’re running Ubuntu, head to Ninite’s site, check the apps you want on your system, then click ‘Get Installer.’ The .deb file you get in return installs everything, and handles the addition of third-party repositories for apps like Dropbox, Adobe AIR, and other apps. Some of these apps are included in Ubuntu’s official repositories and the Software Center ‘store,’ but through Ninite and third-party repositories, you get updates and new versions much quicker.

One caveat – when I tried to access the site on 09/25/2010, it was inaccessible. Will try again later.
