Since we're at the formative stages of Hardy I thought I'd start a
thread about apps which might be good for inclusion in the default
Ubuntu setup.

My suggestion:

Miro (GPL v2 or later; currently in universe) has reached its 1.0 milestone
I note that its getting praise from the press
I've used it in the past and its quite interesting.


P.S. I was looking at /usr/share/doc/sun-java6-jre/copyright and had a
'WTF? moment':

This product is covered and controlled by U.S.
Export Control laws and may be subject to the export or
import laws in other countries.  Nuclear, missile, chemical
biological weapons or nuclear maritime end uses or end
users, whether direct or indirect, are strictly prohibited.

Export or reexport to countries subject to U.S.
embargo or to entities identified on U.S.  export exclusion
lists, including, but not limited to, the denied persons and
specially designated nationals lists is strictly prohibited.

Apparently one cam made WMDs with it or something; no wonder its in
multiverse! ;)
Are we ever going to get some form of Java in Ubuntu by default I wonder?
