That was the list.
I was thinking about Visio, to draw schematics and such, although I have AutoCAD, which I am more familiar with.
OneNote I am unsure about, since I really don't understand the usefulness of organizing my notes and documents, but maybe it will be useful for grad school.
And I may get Visual Studio 6 because it appears to hve several programming languages it may be useful to have, although I don't program much. Version 6 doesn't have the libraries, but again, if I don't know what they are, I don't know the usefulness.
