To make it easier for beginners, it includes a series of tools and applications, such as Adobe Flash, Chrome and GNOME applications like the calendar, and others like FileZilla, LibreOffice, Rhythmbox, GIMP, PlayOnLinux and Steam. It uses Pacman manager and it also includes Pushbullet and ICE app to create web shortcuts on the desktop.
