Dev Box Tools

Today I was setting up a new dev machine on Azure and I used Chocolatey to get and install a bunch of the common tools I use on a typical development machine.  The script I used is below if anyone wants to try it.

@powershell -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy unrestricted -Command "iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString(''))" && SET PATH=%PATH%;%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\chocolatey\bin

choco install winmerge
choco install 7zip
choco install fiddler4
choco install linqpad4
choco install logparser
choco install logparserstudio
choco install wireshark
choco install sysinternals
choco install treesizefree
choco install smartftp
choco install filezilla
choco install resharper
choco install dotpeek
choco install dottrace
choco install dotcover
choco install notepadplusplus
choco install azurestorageexplorer
choco install cloudberryexplorer.azurestorage

This got me thinking that we should as a community put together a set of widgets in Chocolatey to help setup out machines for BizTalk development.  If anyone has any ideas of what else we should use pop a comment on this post and ill see if we can extend the script to the things we need.
