    Hi,
    I see you mentioned Skype. I'm looking to buy one Aspire one, Linpus version, but what holds me back is not knowing if skype with vdo conferencing can be installed and is working on this little machine. Can you give me some feedback?

    Thanks in advance.

    Cheers,
    Joao

    Not sure I can think of twenty, not even sure I use twenty - at least not directly, background apps don't count?

    These are the apps I'll probably want on mine when it finally arrives:

    1 - MythTV (well maybe I'm biased)
    2 - KMail
    3 - KDevelop (Kate)
    4 - OpenSSH
    5 - Inkscape
    6 - Firefox
    7 - OpenOffice Writer
    8 - Kpowersave
    9 - Konversation
    10 - Kpdf
    11 - Subversion
    12 - Kopete
    13 - Digikam (not sure about this one)
    14 - KAtomic
    15 - Knotes

    Ok, I'm out of ideas

    joliv999, if you did the tiniest amount of research you would learn that not only it works with pretty much everyone, there's even a video guide on how to install it on youtube.

    The GIMP! Man, what a GUI travesty. When are they ever going to advance into the 21st century?

    I am new to Linux (but not to The GIMP) and would appreciate knowing what to use to replace this relic from the past. Does Paint.NET work in Wine?

    BEST DISTRO: archlinux like gentoo, but better (no compiling stuff).
    wicd --- wireless manager
    azureus --for torrents
    opera --best browser out there
    firefox 2 (3.0.1 so unstable)
    kdf --- disk monitor
    frostwire ---like limewire (to awake the pirate inside you!)
    gimp --- graphics
    gqview (perferct for pr0n... err! comics ;) )
    kpdf or okular for pdfs
    k3b has no match in linux --- burning
    wine (or crossover) and office 2003
    winrar (sorry more wine apps)
    amarok
    if no amarok, exaile (very good one for music)
    gparted (for advanced disk management *very dangerous app*)

    thats all my favs.
    PS. you can use pop-mouse: check this little video http://enzobelmont.googlepages.com/pop-mouse.avi
