    When you install openSUSE, particularly using the DVD, I think you get all of the esential applications without even asking for more. I do add others of course, but it depends on what you are into. I consider the following essential to me:

    1. Firefox (Web Browser)
    2. kwrite (Text Editor)
    3. k3b (Disk Burner)
    4. Amarok (Music Player)
    5. Asunder (Audio CD Ripper)
    6. Kaffeine (DVD Player)
    7. Dolphin (File Manager)
    8. xbmc (Media Center)
    9. LibreOffice (Desktop Suite)
    10. Kolourpaint (Graphics Editor)

    And, I spend lots of time using YaST for system setup as well as KDE Personnel Settings. And, when none of that does what I want, I have lots of bash scripts I have written. Here is just one sample: FastBoot

    Thank You,

    Lynx, so if X ever dies you can still access the web to find help/faqs.

    I install the findutils (locate) because they enables me to locate where files are easily - otherwise, as jdmcdaniel3 says, you get all the essential ones when you install.
