And of course, the obligatory internet-enabled crap that simply MUST be loaded on the OS because EVERYONE is going to use it. I know of exactly 0 people who use Empathy (no pun intended).
This is the package manager. Pretty basic, but it get's the job done and it certainly works.
And of course, shutting Fedora 12 down.
