... to create a script or download template which will automatically fetch and install your favourite progs each time you do a fresh install?

Yes.

If you want to know how, it might be a good idea to specify your distro. for a Debian derivative, it would mainly consist of a series of apt-get install calls, possibly preceded by adding repositories to /etc/apt/sources.list.

Ah, but adding repo's isn't enough Nelz... You'd also need to install the required keys so apt[-get|itude] won't complain about untrusted sources Wink But, one could always specify those beforehand, just after overwriting the entire sources.list from said script Smile

Hmmm, interesting thought. Maybe I'll try this out in a VM later Smile

I'm using ubuntu 11.10 - I kept the specifics out of it in case there was a generic way of doing stuff Smile.
