One day I might even install them.

Thousands of programs that I've never heard about are available for downloading. There are also hundreds that I have heard about, and among those are more than a handful that perhaps I'm even interested in using. Some of these are shareware, others freeware. I've downloaded tens of them. Some are items for which I'm on a continual quest - the best freeware screen capture tool, for instance. I've tested at least a handful of these, and even though I'm very pleased with the one I presently use, I'm always on the lookout for something newer and better. Others are items I've heard or read about and decide to download, but dont' really have the time to test. What most of them have in common is the fact that I really don't need them. But that doesn't mean that I don't download them. And ultimately they accumulate. A program here, another there. Were I to install all of them the system resources they'd use up would significantly slow down my computer. Even only saving them to my hard drive (and then often forgetting about them - at least a few times I've started a download on a program only to be told that I've already got the same program stored in the folder to which I'm downloading) takes up a significant amount of hard drive space. So every few months I burn a CD with all of these programs, whether I use them or not, and do a bit of cleaning on my hard drive.
