    Ubuntu software

    What ubuntu software do you consider must have software? What software would you consider nice to have (don't really have to have but something to add if you feel like it)? What software would you remove if you have it?

    Here are some of the names of the software that came with my instalation of Ubuntu, which of the above software catagories would you sort these into (must have, nice to have, remove it): Radio Tray, Clementine, Virtual Box, Pinta, MyPaint,Wally.

    synaptic, gedebi, ccsm, pulseaudio volume control, alsamixer. These should be installed by default IMO.

    Re: Ubuntu software

    synaptic (again - seems to be very popular.
    gimp
    vlc
    xsane

    There are probably others, but those are definitely the "Must Haves" for me, no matter which *ubuntu I am using.
