I posted this thought earlier and it mysteriously disappeared.

Google Pack hasn't been updated in ages. Will this ever get a facelift or is it destined to fade into obscurity?

I do, sometimes, see software updates running through Google Packs. But in terms of update for Google Pack itself .. not sure ...

If i'm not mistaken, the last software update was adding Skype.

They've added it around Nov. 2006

:/

Did they ever remove Real Player?

What updates would you like to see for a small update software? The last application added to Google Pack was StarOffice (Aug. 07).

Oh, right..
I forgot about StarOffice. :P

I wish they would create a Google Pack for Mac's and maybe even linux. Google does have a pretty cool Google Updater app that updates the Mac software they own and support.

There is a Google Pack for Mac since all Google software install through that annoying updater. Actually Google Pack = Google Updater + some software that can be updated/uninstalled using Google Updater.

I actually wish Google would release GreenBorder software through Google Pack. That would help so many window's users.

GooglePack doesn't make much sense for Linux. We already have a nice way to install and update all the software which is installed on the system, (pretty much like the new Iphone App Store,btw)

Yeah, I wouldn't use a Google Pack for Linux.

How about more native support, though? Sketchup, I say?

Google Pack is nice for quick installations on fresh XP installs. Set it and forget it, I say. Where's my oven?

Google Pack is just like Windows Update or Apple Software Update .. why would you want update for them?!
