Curious what things i will change over time

Local shop ACTION had Samsung SD kaartjes van 32GB class10 voor 6.95Euro now 8.95Euro
not sure if these cards are really good for raspberry, but samsung and class 10 sounds ok / good
in the past i had some issues with sandisk cruzer usb sticks, so sandisk is not my brand anymore
but it is possible that sandisk and samsung come out of the same factory/machine
That is cheap and the 16Gb i have quit fast filled up so 32Gb is better

I do not have hdmi screens, only have some old svga screens thrown away by other people
so i have a cheap 3.48Euro hdmi to svga adapter from local ACTION shop
also has an audio jack wich i think has better sound as onboard sound jack

Raspbian gedownload with a micro$oft window$ laptop
NOOBS full version
The less i use micro$oft window$, the more i hate it. so Fword slow
wrote unzipped iso image to the sdcard with etcher
sd card image writer
m$ windows did not see the sdcard direct in slot so did put te sdcard in a usb thingy
wow, m$ windows found the sd card

ok raspberry boots up in something like 5 seconds (wow compare that, i just spend 2 hours on windows bootup with its who know how long it wil take updates)

mplayer is not installed wanted to test internet radio stream sound with 15 year orso old screen screenspeakers
sudo apt-get install mplayer

chromium is already installed
strange epiphani browser is on /user/bin/ disk but not in menu
i thought i had removed on another pi

realvnc is allready installed
Not sure if i have to put vnc to on in Menu>Preferences>Raspberry Pi Configuration

Geany text editor
sudo apt-get install geany

The GIMP photoshop alike
menu>graphics>gnu image manipulation program
sudo apt-get install gimp

InkScape drawing program
sudo apt-get install inkscape

xfe dual panel filemanager fast loading with a lot of options
xfe is Better for me as standard single panel filemanager of raspbian
menu>system tools>xfe
sudo apt-get install xfe

disk tools mounting and more
sudo apt-get install gnome-disk-utility

install webserver and php
sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt update
sudo apt install apache2
sudo apt install php php-mbstring

raspberry pi on screen keyboard
sudo apt-get install matchbox-keyboard
Now you can access the keyboard:
Menu >> Accessories >> Keyboard
