Hi All,

Per Lionel's note to the list, here are my thoughts:

-- xfprint4 - did this replace the gnome print manager from gutsy?  if so, i
think i prefer the gnome print manager, but need to take a closer look.
-- ristretto  - +1.  not a great deal of functionality, but certainly no
worse than gqview.  seems to work ok.  cleaner ui than gqview, too.
-- squeeze - the current version included in xubuntu hardy (v0.2.2) core
dumped on me when trying to open up a basic tar archive last night (i filed
a bug - #187928).  is it ready for prime time?
-- xfmedia - not a fan of this program - lightweight, but not enough
functionality.  could we include audacious in it's place?  audacious is a
basic gtk-based media player - similar to xmms, but under regular
development and with a few more features and available plugins than
xfmedia.  is xfmedia currently being developed?
-- xscreensaver - i prefer xscreensaver and the more light-weight
screensavers that it uses over gnome-screensaver.  the power management
abilities of gnome-screensaver aren't very important to me.
-- update-manager - i'm in favor of keeping this app included in xubuntu.
-- (gcalctool)  - my favorite program ever.  (just kidding)
-- (transmission-gtk) - +1.  thanks.
-- gnome-games - please include them.

Thanks, all,
