A pack I compiled with some applications for Linux you may find useful. Some are in source code, others in .deb and/or .rpm packages and some both. Here\\\'s what\\\'s inside:
E-Mail Client : Mozilla Thunderbird
Anti-Virus : AVG Free 7.5 for Linux (on-access scanning only available with DAZUKO)
.pdf reader : Duh. Adobe Reader. (of course you can use your distro\\\'s PDF reader if you don\\\'t like Adobe)
IM : Pidgin IM for MSN, ICQ and AIM
and Productivity Suite : OpenOffice 2.4.0
FOR OPEN-SOURCE USERS: Adobe Reader and AVG are NOT open source. Of course you probably know that already.
AND FOR any peers : Please just seed for a little while. A hour or so, until other people with more bandwidth and possibility can become a seed. Thanks!
