Hi,

Got Gentoo && FluxBox. I like it simple. But what programs to use? I want:

    Office apps (spreadsheet/Writer that can read MS-Office)
    Mail
    News
    MP3

They all have to be "localized", (In my case Danish). But most important: They have to be simple! For example Evolution is much too heavy and featured for my simple pop/smtp needs.

Any suggestions of what apps to pick up?

regards
Supermule

you might want to check out lyx for documents, it creates PDF files, so you can read it in windows too

it is really simple and it looks extremely professional
