Another things:

- a simple backup software is missed and I think is good add one as
recommends in cinnamon-desktop-environment; deja-dup can be ok or is
there something better? (for example I use it for major of users as
simpler also for configure, on my pcs I use instead backintime)

- seahorse (for store password and key from gui) can be ok add it as
recommends in cinnamon-desktop-environment?

- as remote desktop client now there is vinagre (as recommends in
cinnamon-desktop-environment), remmina is better and I would like to put
it as default instead of vinagre (which I would leave as an
alternative), there are objections or I can do?

- some time ago there was also a propose to put atril as default instead
evince, as mentioned I don't know if it is a good choice (from some
tests and research, atril have simpler gui interface while as support
and features is better evince), what do you think about?

thanks for any reply
