Your needs are similar to mine.

I have to agree with Axel's comments.  Most of the software you need is 
available in core/extras.  There are some other items that are only on a 
specific repo so it would depend on the application you want to use/try.

As I am constantly looking for software, I like using Yumex as it allows 
me to search for application by keyword in a GUI.  I have just changed 
from gnome to KDE and I have yet to really try kyum but it looks like it 
will do the same as yumex.

Due to the move to M$ Exchange Server,
    anything that is a priority, please phone.
