    What apps should be included by default, and flavor.

     

    AS you mostly know wattOS tries to stay minimal but give you the basis to install what you want. 

     

    For example - Browser? Codecs. flash, etc...and what type...Chromium, Qupzilla, Mozilla, Midori, VLC, xfburn, etc...

     

    Fire away :) you know the best open source stuff out there

    Biff,

     

    Please, please, whatever you do, make sure LXDE is an option.  Before coming to wattOS I was a happy Linux Mint user, until...... they dropped LXDE.  It was the search for an LXDE distro that led me to wattOS.  Of course, once I tried it, I was sold and I'm a very happy wattOS user.  Still, I have to be honest, LXDE is part of the appeal.

    Hi Earl - 

     

    There are no plans to drop LXDE unless I run into some sort of breakage that I am not anticipating. So enjoy your LXDE desktop now and in the future :)
