We should definitely include a basic set of internet apps -- web
browser, news and mail reader, maybe IRC client) -- and some little
productivity gizmos -- calculator, notepad, calendar, etc. These
basic tools should be graphical since no end user will take a text
only interface seriously these days. We should probably look at the
KDE project for a source of these tools.
