Went to Google this morning and noticed this link, not sure how long it has been up or not as of yet, but thought it would be worth sharing.


Here is a preview of what software they have listed and recommend:​


They've had it available before.

Nice set of tools btw.
Have you guys tried refreshing your cache, or doing a CTRL + F5

Alternatively, you should be able to get there by the direct link I posted above.
I think the link at the Google homepage is random. I get a link to Picasa.

But the link Derek provided in the first post works.
Isn't this very old? I was using the pack last year.
Ahar! I remember installing it on the old PC when I was in NZ last year :D
There have been new additions to google pack:

Google distributing Sun office software for free in intensifying attack on Microsoft

Two years after announcing a somewhat vague software-distribution partnership, Google Inc. and Sun Microsystems Inc. have clarified their tactics for jointly attacking Microsoft Corp. and its ubiquitous Office software.
Over the weekend, Google quietly began including Sun's StarOffice suite of word processing, spreadsheets and other workplace-oriented programs for free as part of the Google Pack download.
The download package is part of Google's efforts to expand beyond Web search and control more of users' computing experience online and offline. It already includes Firefox, the No. 2 Web browser behind Microsoft's Internet Explorer, and RealNetworks Inc.'s RealPlayer, a key rival to Microsoft's own media player.
By adding Sun's software, Google is giving a valuable endorsement to a server and software maker that saw demand for its products collapse after the dot-com bust and has struggled to return to sustained profitability ever since.
StarOffice is Sun's commercial version of the freely distributed OpenOffice suite, which also was developed by Sun and has been downloaded about 100 million times.
StarOffice typically costs $70 (euro52) to download but is being distributed by Google for free. It has more features than OpenOffice and typically includes technical support from Sun, though the free Google version won't.
Both companies declined to comment on their financial arrangement...
