I usually use Linux Mint, which has most things, but I like to add
- Double Commander
- Leafpad (lighter and simpler than most editor)
- Gnumeric -- I prefer to LibreOffice Calc

With Bunsenlabs, I have to install more, e.g., Thunderbird, Leafpad, Double Commander
and usually some other stuff.

I tried to install Skype... but could not. Seems to be no longer supported. I did see there were commands to be able to install a previous/older Skype version (or something of that sort). But, did not wanna go through the hassle.

PS. It was for Ubuntu lite

I keep coming back to openSuSE, and immediately install:
Kate
Git
Inkscape
Binary drivers for the video card
Blender
Steam + games
Godot

Before long I'll inevitably add:
Audacity
A better version of VLC

The distro that I use, (AntiX), has most of what I need, but I also add audacity & openshot, so that I can record & make videos.

I'm not sure about Ubuntu Lite but generally for the Debian/Ubuntu family, you can get it from here: https://www.skype.com/en/get-skype/d...e-for-desktop/

Alternatively, if you want to add the Skype repo to easily keep the package up to date, the full sequence of commands is currently:

Code:
sudo apt install apt-transport-https

curl https://repo.skype.com/data/SKYPE-GPG-KEY | sudo apt-key add -

echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://repo.skype.com/deb stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/skype-stable.list

sudo apt update

sudo apt install skypeforlinux

Mildly off-topic but to offer some perspective: in FreeBSD, here is partial list:

xorg, drm-kmod (video driver), xfe, cwm, geany, cmus, xmodmap, chromium, various fonts (ubuntu, hack, liberation), keepassxc, mpv, geeqie, gimp, xsane.

You may be put off by "xorg" but for those not in the know, FreeBSD does not come with ANY end user applications installed, only the core OS.
