Hi!

I am very new to Gentoo as i have just compiled everything with working graphics. I choose Gentoo because i like having an OS exactly to my needs and wants, and also specific to my system. :D

Gentoo is all about choices though i would like to get your opinion or recommendations for which applications, features, look that i should go for as a first time user to get a feel and starter. Right now i have got KDE with nVidia graphics, amsn, mplayer, and Mozilla Firefox.

I would appreciate this and it may also help other newbies. :D You can write as many or little as you want.
Useful way to explain things would be filling in these optional criteria:
> Name of Application/feature
> Description
> Emerge Command
> Use Flags
> Anything else to know about the application/feature.

Thanks in advance. :D
Mebu

There is a huge list at http://gentoo-wiki.com/TIP_Recommended_Packages.

My pick: app-misc/beagle and kde-misc/kerry (desktop search).

Another list is in Common Threads, see the links to threads for individual categories inside. Moved from Installing Gentoo to Duplicate Threads.
