I am a computer science student and I have been running Windows on my computers for more than a decade. Last semester, some of my classmates suggested that I run Linux instead of Windows, but I did not have time to experiment with it outside of running virtual machines. It is now winter break, so I wiped my laptop's hard drive and installed Gentoo Linux. So far I have few applications installed relative to what I had installed on Windows, but I would like that to change. Very few of the applications I had on Windows run on Linux, so I want to learn what my options are in terms of software on Linux. Being a computer science student, I think dealing with native Linux applications would be more educational in terms of learning how things work, so I want to try to avoid running wine.

Anyway, while I was installing Gentoo on my laptop, I found out about /var/lib/portage/world, which gave me a list of all of the packages I had installed on my virtual machines so I could just pick the ones I wanted to emerge without having to guess the list off the top of my head. This was really helpful to me, but I am sure that full time Linux users have many more applications on their lists and since I have time to experiment I was wondering if you guys would share the contents of your /var/lib/portage/world files with me so I can get ideas for software to try. Here is mine:

Code:
app-admin/sysklogd
app-portage/gentoolkit
dev-java/sun-jdk
kde-base/kdebase-meta
media-video/smplayer
net-analyzer/traceroute
net-misc/dhcpcd

Some I never actually use though.
I'm just a retiree who likes to experiment with software
and has taken up digital photography.
I recently installed RawTherapee which is not in Gentoo packages.

To install Gentoo I use sysrescuecd.Based on Gentoo,has firefox to browse Gentoo docs and mc to browse (and edit) files.
The same disk can be used for 32 and 64 bit installs.

Moved from Gentoo Chat to Duplicate Threads.

We've been here before, in fact at least twice.
