Each category in the "Applications" menu contains many applications and the "Settings" and "System" categories contain many utilities for configuring your system. If you are new to GNOME2, take some time to discover which applications best suit your needs. Some of the applications which are provided by GNOME include:

  • Epiphany[3]: web browser found in InternetEpiphany Web Browser.
  • Brasero[4]: CD/DVD burning software found in MultimediaBrasero Disk Burner.
  • Totem[5]: movie player found in MultimediaMovie Player.
