I'm going to give banshee a try actually. I've subscribed to the The
Podcast recently actually. It's very good.
* Thunderbird and thunderbird-enigmail
* Gnumeric and Abiword (not a fan of open office), also use google docs
* xchat-gnome for IRC
* postr for uploading photos to flickr
* bzr for working on various projects

Ditto, but for jabber too.
* gpg keys
* screenrc (though maybe I should just use terminator for local use)
* GDM theme
* A photo of me for the gdm theme, and pidgin etc.
I have to go and enable spatial nautilus, desktop_as_home_dir and single
click open to feel at home too.
