Could you explore a litle further on which hardware was this installation made?

The link to kdewebdev4 appears to be broken. I looked around for it and have yet to find but I'm sure Mr. Google will help. Other than that it is the usual nice write up.

Why do you have in your selection multiple graphics, email and browsers? Who needs 2 different mail clients or 3 webbrowsers? I am using Linux for several years now, but I am also familiar with the Windows world and never ever did I mix all sorts of programs, this is just confusing the user, when he has the agony of choice (or the choice of agony...).

I don't see 2 email clients or 3 browsers in this software list, only one of everything.....  maybe the previous commenter got confused.

I would have included Inkscape though..
