It'd be very cool if it came with KeePassX. As it is, this program is quite popular, but for some reason it doesn't come up in Portage even right now. How sad.

TrueCrypt is another magnificent program that would be cool to have included. This program does appear in Portage, but it's been giving me trouble, and it'd be nice to have it included I think.

Also, it would be cool if the installer presented and gave brief explanations about SELinux and Bastille, and helped the use through a very basic configuration of either/both of them during the installation. Same idea with iptables, which I imagine could approach the user sort of like how the disk partitioning stage of the installation does by providing a base, recommended settings that the user can modify. :D

Aterm with pseudo-transparency like what Vector has instead of the current ugly Konsole. Its much more eye pleasing and would fit well.

edit - 11/1
automagically clear the tmp logs daily with tmpreaper, few of us do Distributed Computing Projects (D2OL) and or leave our systems on 24/7. :)

I want to add in on about the speed issue too, perhaps try to be as fast as Slackware.

p.s. I use mini

Midnight Commander (in the miniEdition ). After that I (and many others) can forget about Knoppix :!:

SLAB is already being used by gnome in the dvd version
The awesome suse kicker is now being used in kde

midnight commander will be tried but I don't think its going to be added due to size restraints with squashfs, I think we'll try also with unionfs though again :)

The proprietary driver for the RT61 chipset wireless cards.
The opensource driver doesn't work correctly.

In the x86-64 version, it doesn't work at all, in the x86 it doesn't support the WPA encryption.

OpenOffice either bundled along side koffice or as an optional package in the package chooser (if the package chooser is slated to be in the next release)

Firefox 2.0

R3MF, for the games, just open a bug on bugzilla with the request. We'd like to add some new games in the next releases.
