Chocolatey, apt-get for windows!

Chocolatey is simply a Machine Package Manager for Windows. When installing Windows applications, Chocolatey can do it for you in a single line. It will download and install that application with one line only! At the time speaking there are 1644 packages, so a lot of applications are available.

Installing Chocolatey is also a single line:
@powershell -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy unrestricted -Command "iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString(''))" && SET PATH=%PATH%;%systemdrive%\chocolatey\bin

From there you can just type cinst PackageName like cinst GoogleChrome. Look at Chocolatey's website to find the packages you need.

Enjoy an apt-get like tool for Windows!
