Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Site news In recent weeks, reghardware has run a series of top 10s - rounds up of "essential" or "best" apps and peripherals.

And very popular they have proved too, especially this one: Ten free apps to install on every new PC.

This prompted 187 comments, with readers in their dozens suggesting dozens more apps - and slating us for including iTunes for Windows on our list.

One commenter wrote to us to suggest that we put reader recommendations to the vote. This got us thinking and we came up with...a voting system.

Let's call it Voting Live Beta: it's clumsy - and we haven't figured out a good way yet to show the results. But then crowd-pleasing is very new to us.

Give Voting Live Beta twirl with the two articles below - and get sharing those recommendations. Also, please give us your feedback on the comments pages for this article - all suggestions for improvement most welcome.
