you can finally run newer flash apps

xmms? I heard amarok was better. What's the difference?

xmms is simpler, kinda like the old winamp

amarok is supposed to have alot more features, like showing you album info and stuff

i use xmms, i play music in the background while doing other things so i could care less how flash amarok is

Fluxbox

It's incredible and minimallistic at the same time.

I've recently started using IceWM, it's much better than Fluxbox.

Better skins and more support.

I like my FB. Besides, I only use Eterm and Firefox 90% of the time anyway so I don't need icons. PS: Eterm vs aterm?

If you're willing to try IceWM, I can give you some really nice skins I custom made.

Eterm vs Aterm: That's mostly a matter of preference. I tried both for a couple hours and to be honest I find them to be superfluous (years of being a windows user has given me resource-phobia). Don't ask me why but hours of skinning my linux distro's my way has gotten me used to opening good ol' xterm, and I'll stick with it. It's not like I use terminal for more than a couple seconds most of the time anyways.

Gaim, Firefox, Thunderbird

Programming:
gcc (duh), nasm, and vi (I love VI :))

Security:
Ettercap, Wireshark, Airsnort, stunnel, nc, vnc (it makes encryped connections), nmap (duh), paketto kiresa suite, hping, and firewalk.

Graphics:
The Gimp

That's all.. If you need information on anything or running FBSD, ask !:)
