    It is not the number of programs installed which will affect your computer other than use up your free space. It will affect the computer performance if these programs are running in background or have background processes.
    Use them without worries, none of them will put a strain on your computer.

    Why do you need so many editors? Paint.Net should be enough.

    yes i do! its the only way to get hands on experience. you can view a demo if on youtube sometimes, but that isnt enough to download and use the program..so i download after reading reviews and asking around ..if i remove it, it means it wasnt satisfactory to my needs lol
