Abstract: The Starlink Software is a collection of astronomical packages and utilities comprising over 120 separate components. When built, the system needs between 500 and 650 MB disk space (without source) making it ideal for distribution on CD-ROM. Each component has been individually packaged into an easy-to-install bundle for users to obtain over the Internet via a ``point and click'' WWW interface from the Starlink Software Store.
