(Note that the installation process also wants to install browser toolbars by default, so if you want to avoid that, read what's involved in each step and don't simply keep clicking Next.)
This could easily have become a chaotic mess, with for instance Free Studio adding 25 new icons to your desktop - but fortunately it's much better than that.
All you'll actually see is a single new Free Studio icon. Click this and it will launch a front end menu for the suite, which neatly divides the programs into four sections (Internet, DVD & Video, MP3 & Audio, CD/ DVD/ BD). Choose one of these and you'll see links to the individual programs, which you can then launch and try out.
The programs themselves are very easy to use. The Free Audio CD Burner, say, has a browse button to let you select music files, and a Burn button to create the disc: you'll know how to use it right away.
But there are still plenty of useful and more powerful utilities here, particularly in the excellent video conversion tools (you'll be able to convert videos to iPod formats with ease), and if you're at all interested in this kind of program then Free Studio really is an essential installation.
