My Linux Desktop

In order to get to work I set up the following custom software:

  1. java 1.6
  2. groovy 1.1
  3. grails
  4. eclipse 3.2
  5. jboss 4.2.1
  6. ie4linux
  7. crossover office
  8. beryl
  9. vmware player with a Windows XP image

Everything else I take as default from the distribution. I evaluated distributions and picked one where it was easiest to set up the distribution to work well in a windows dominated environment.
