"In appearance, TinyMe is attractive enough that I haven't been tempted to change anything, which is rare for me.

It includes Abiword for word processing, Opera for Web browsing, Sylpheed for email, and GThumb digital camera support. However, there appears to be no included spreadsheet or database manager, and adding my printer required downloading CUPS.
