-<h2>Applications</h2>
-<p>Rather than presenting a whole list of applications, let's discover the most common applications that you  will use on a daily basis.</p>
-<p>PC-BSD comes with full-featured quality and open-source applications developed for the KDE desktop. As we saw previously, applications are organized into categories. This way you can find what you want easily and quickly.</p>
-<h3>Games</h3>
-<p>A number of quality games come with PC-BSD's default installation. The range of games includes: Arcade, board games, card games, kids games, tactics &amp; strategy. Let's click &quot;Games &gt; Arcade &gt; KSirtet&quot; for instance to launch a Tetris-like game. There's nothing like a good old Tetris :) </p>
-<p><img src="images/tetris-kde.png" alt="Tetris on KDE" width="357" height="426" /></p>
-<h3>Graphics</h3>
-<p>Most software listed under &quot;Graphics&quot; are utilities that regular users are not going to use on a daily basis. KPDF, a PDF viewer can be launched double-clicking a <tt>.pdf</tt> file for instance. Same goes for KView, an image viewer that you can launch double-clicking an image file. If you want to take a screen shot of your system or of a single application, you can use KSnapshot. For image editing, you will probably want a software application such as popular Adobe Photoshop or JASC Paint Shop PRO. These applications are not available on PC-BSD yet, but you can install <a href="http://www.pbidir.com/search.php?str=koffice">KOffice</a>, an office suite, from the <a href="http://www.pbidir.com/">PBI directory</a> and use <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krita">Krita</a>, a good image editing application that comes with KOffice and that works very well on PC-BSD.</p>
-<h3>Internet</h3>
-<p>Several applications listed in this category are popular among users. First, Kmail, KDE's e-mail client offers all you may expect from an e-mail application, it is light-weight, fast and has a similar interface to other popular e-mail clients:</p>
-<p><img src="images/kmail.png" alt="Kmail" width="708" height="423" /></p>
-<p>Konqueror is PC-BSD's default web browser. Konqueror uses the KHTML rendering engine, which means that pages you visit will be rendered the same way as Apple's Safari web browser. If you search a little bit into Konqueror's menus, you will find the settings that list a number of options that will please the most power users. You can open new tabs hitting &quot;Ctrl-T&quot;. Konqueror has similar options and interface to other web browsers:</p>
-<p><img src="images/konqueror.png" alt="Konqueror" width="746" height="563" /> </p>
-<p>Most of us love instant messaging. If you do too, you will probably love the power and simplicity of Kopete, KDE's instant messenger. Kopete is compatible with a number of services and protocols, including but not limited to: MSN Messenger, Google's Gtalk, Jabber, Yahoo Messenger, ICQ, and AIM. Kopete's interface is uncluttered, minimal and, obviously, has no advertisements:</p>
-<p><img src="images/kopete.png" alt="Kopete" width="230" height="374" /></p>
-<h3>Multimedia </h3>
-<p>PC-BSD's multimedia applications allows you to watch your favorites movies and to listen to your music easily, like you would do on any other system. KMix is PC-BSD's mixer to adjust volume:</p>
-<p><img src="images/kmix.png" alt="KMix" width="357" height="262" /> </p>
-<p>You can turn everything up to 80% and you should have  a clear sound with no saturation. The default multimedia player on PC-BSD is called Kaffeine. Use Kaffeine to listen to audio CDs, audio files on your computer, streaming radios through the Internet. Also use Kaffeine to watch DVDs, video CDs, videos on your computer, streaming videos on the Internet. Kaffeine is multi-purpose and therefore you can use only Kaffeine to play all your media files if you want. Please note that most media is encoded using proprietary codecs, this is the case for DVDs,  audio files with the following extensions: <tt>.mp3</tt>, <tt>.wma</tt>; video files with the following extensions: <tt>.avi</tt>, <tt>.wmv</tt>, <tt>.asf</tt>, <tt>.qt</tt>, <tt>.mpg</tt>, <tt>.mpeg</tt>. To play these files, you will need to download and install the <a href="http://www.pbidir.com/search.php?str=codecs">essential codecs</a>. Kaffeine can play out of the box all free/open formats such as Ogg and Teoma Vorb!
 is. PC-BSD encourages everybody to use free, open and patents-free formats whenever possible. Here's the Kaffeine multimedia player: </p>
-<p><img src="images/kaffeine.png" alt="Kaffeine" width="511" height="372" /> </p>
-<p>Additionally, you can download <a href="http://www.pbidir.com/search.php?str=amarok">Amarok</a>, and award-winning jukebox for KDE.</p>
-<h3>Office</h3>
-<p>To manage your mail, your meetings, your contacts, your notes, your RSS feeds and your tasks, you will probably enjoy using Kontact, KDE's Personal Information Manager:</p>
-<p><img src="images/kontact.png" alt="Kontact" width="706" height="576" /></p>
-<p>Kontact offers the functionality you need in a light-weight application. As you can see, Kontact is a bundle of office applications that can be used separately.</p>
-<p>Manage your contacts with KAddressBook. They will be available in other Kontact applications such as KMail. KAddressBook is easy to use and offers advanced search features such as filters to manage large lists of contacts. Its interface is straight-forward and you will be able to use it in no time: </p>
-<p><img src="images/kaddressbook.png" alt="KAddressBook" width="527" height="324" /> </p>
-<p>Manage your meetings with KOrganizer. You can easily add new events and edit them. With the calendar in the upper-left corner, you can select the day you want to view events accordingly: </p>
-<p><img src="images/korganizer.png" alt="KOrganizer" width="654" height="511" /></p>
-<p>As a side note, you can download the office suite of your choice. We recommend either <a href="http://www.pbidir.com/search.php?str=openoffice">OpenOffice.org</a> or <a href="http://www.pbidir.com/search.php?str=koffice">KOffice</a>. Both of them are compatible with the recommended <tt>.odt</tt> OpenDocument file format. OpenOffice.org is full-featured and renders  Microsoft Office documents very well while KOffice is light-weight.</p>
-<h3>PBI Programs</h3>
-<p>In the &quot;PBI Programs&quot; menu, you will find the list of PBI applications  that you installed. If you haven't installed any PBI application, this menu will not be listed.</p>
-<h3>System</h3>
-<p>Advanced usage of PC-BSD usually assumes that you use the terminal, also known as CLI (Command Line Interpreter). The terminal allows you to interact directly with the core of your system by entering commands. The terminal interface is a simple window similar to the MS-DOS window in MS Windows:</p>
-<p><img src="images/terminal.png" alt="Terminal" width="594" height="281" /></p>
-<p>To execute a line of code, just type it and hit &quot;Enter&quot;. It is sometimes important to know disk space usage on your hard disk drive. KDiskFree is a neat application with a nice interface that will show your disk usage on all your partitions. You can see the amount of disk space used and the percentage:</p>
-<p><img src="images/kdiskfree.png" alt="kdiskfree" width="556" height="272" /></p>
-<h3>Utilities</h3>
-<p>Ever wondered if PC-BSD had a graphical calculator? Well yes, it does, PC-BSD has a nice calculator, KCalc, that can be switched to &quot;Scientific&quot; mode or &quot;Simple&quot; mode:</p>
-<p><img src="images/kcalc.png" alt="KCalc" width="294" height="250" /> </p>
-<p>Now, what would you use to edit text files, or to develop a script with code highlighting? Kate is KDE's most advanced text editor with a document selector in the left pane:</p>
-<p><img src="images/kate.png" alt="Kate" width="575" height="313" /> </p>
-<p>If you want a more simple text editor, you can use KEdit or KWrite as well. They provide simple text editing. These text editors are compatible with the universal utf-8 file format that allows to type in any character available in any language on the planet such as Tamil, Armenian, Arabic or Korean in the same document.</p>
-<p>These are the most commonly used applications on PC-BSD. PC-BSD doesn't come with many applications and leaves you the choice to install the ones you feel more comfortable with. Fortunately, as you will see, installing new applications in PC-BSD is very easy. You won't have to learn how to use a package manager or to type commands in the terminal. </p>
-<p>Now that we have a better idea of the default applications that ship with PC-BSD, let's see what options we have in the <a href="chap3.2.html">K Control Center</a>, PC-BSD's control panel.   </p>
