@oc12: the soundkonverter ebuild is in our overlay, you should check it out ;) You have to build it with -kdeenablefinal for now, but I got a bug sent to him about that, let me know how it is
GNU Cash 2.0 FTW! =)

Lets see
Apple's Wishlist
Clean emerge / portage, without masked package complaints or blockers :)
Graphics Card + XGL Kcontrol section / GUI Configuration, that uses / calls the nvidia, ati, beryl and aixgl.
GUI configuration for switching to and from network manager for networking
GUI configuration for loading of exotic kernel modules / exotic hardware
Modification to live help button , that forces users to change there nickname
New FAQ & Help Documentation
Individual package selection for the installer
Further customisation of the installer
Sabayon could use YAST, but it is bloated and slow, we really need to use Kcontrol as a control centre by making kcontrol modules or make a Sabayon Control Centre with relevant GUI frontends and applications. (No Yast or Sax2 for Sabayon)
Automated Bugreporting Icon / Crash Dialog so that users don't flood IRC and forums with bugs.
#Sabayon-social (hehe, I got this one early)
Custom Sabayon Sounds to go with SquareBottle's awesome artwork
And anything else I can think of

Have vmware server installed by default.

A getting started animation guide, kind of the way xp has it the first time you install.
-with sound preferrably

we cannot include vmware, it's useless without a valid (free) license key, so it does not meet our "out-of-the-box" mantra (or attitude, or behavior, you name it). :P

Could we possibly have some distro of LaTeX please? Something like Tetex - it's really useful for us engineers and scientists!
