First off, how would like your OS to be? We're talking about out-of-the-box, stock installations. What applications would you like pre-installed in it? Would you like to have an option between choosing a UI similar to that of a previously used OS? Or "to hell with options, I just want to get to work"? Everyone is asked to please share their opinion, newbie and nerd, geek and the Average Joe/Jane. Try to make it as detailed as possible, with what and why.
