also it would be nice to have a virtual machine manager with gui for xen and many server apps like sql ssh php apache nfs samba, ftp server squid antivirus etc. moreover if all server apps have a web interface for using them from distance i thinks it is a good add. finally p2p apps with web interface it would be nice like torrentfux gift with httpgift mldonkey with web interface phpdc(direct connect) so it could be used also as server for downloading. finally i think vnc sever and maybe out of the box many virtual machines like one for firewall and sharing internet connection one web sever etc one for samba (openfiler) one for downloading thinks one for useing as desktop ( the default sabayon) etc. to choose from for more security. aface.nd using all theese via web interface. also it should use lvm or evm and luks for encryption. this i thinks will be th best server distro

I'm finishing x86_64 chroot today, and then I'll add some of the packages you've listed, so in a couple of days it will be ready for the beta-core team and then ready for everybody.

is the business edition being based on Sab 3.4?

i have always argued that taskjuggler should be part of the mainstream Sab distro.

and a truecrypt GUI would be useful too.

sabayon BE will be based on stable packets so no ~ branch means kde 3.5.5 and whatever we think should suit it perfectly even with ~ like for example mono, or openoffice....anyway I'm already uploading it for the beta core it should be ready for everybody after our 3.4 loop 3

Wine
Wine-Doors
Open Office
Firestarter
Task Juggler
K3b w/laCie (lightscribe support)
Azureus
ALL KDE packages
working network drivers (wireless & NIC including PCMCIA)
WPA_supplicant (this should be a given....)
SCSI emluated (no more IDE crap) (also a given)
Firefox w/plugins
Thunderbird
Sunbird
Working Alarm program that is flexable (preferable Kcron, working as a user please!)
smb4k
GIMP or GIMPshop
mplayer w/smplayer
VNC viewer
Wireshark
SUSE style Kicker
beryl&XGL&Emerald
SANE w/XSANE
Live Help (of course!)

Dark Theme (bright colors are hard on the eyes)
Elisa Media Center
SoundKonverter
ManDVD
VLC
evince
blender
gwenview
Hugin Panorama stitcher
Abiword (use it much more than Open Office Writer, I like it better)
Kmymoney
Yakuake (comes in handy)
syslog & etc.
Virus Scanner w/GUI
good videocard support (like we have now w/autodetection)
maybe some good video editing software
Working Texas Instruments Card Reader!! (loop2b has the module running but rules and crap needs to be added for it to work, that sux!)
and some pretty Server admin apps
shorewall
bridge-utils
bind
dhcp
iftop
traceroute
nxserver
virtualbox
quanta
There is going to be a x86_64 version right??!?!


for me business edition means "admin remote controled". Here the users must have a very tinny and constrained box to move ... so ... no azureus here, little games, Yakuake is too heavy :oops: , traceroute to a workstation?, dangerous ... lot of stability ant lot of applications useful to work in a "kiosk mode", centralized backups, centralized instalation deployment, centralized and remote configuration tools. So when you think about a bussiness edition keep in mind that is two parts, servers and workstations ... from my point of view, winxp workstations, has no place in any serios bussines ... period ... :twisted: :twisted: ... ofcourse serverside battle is over ....

Whoa now. Not all businesses use Admin Remote Controlled. I'm not a against it, but BE needs some workstation apps by all means. My dad used to own part of a small business. Small business don't always have nice educated people able to remote anything. I would know, I had been to my dad's work quite a lot before he got out of it. His partner was doing some illegal things behind my fathers back that my father wanted no part in, so he got out. But again, besides that... simplicity, availability, and ways to do things and a low educational level using graphical tools and short cut keys. Hey, just because its simple doesn't mean its self explainitory. For people who are pretty computer and linux savvy what we find simple and self explainitory aren't for the simpleton small business owner.

indeed i'm not thinking about small business but business with dozens and hundreds of desktops, and more that one servers ... a place vere you simply not have the time to play yakuake when you are at work ...
