I recommend checking out the Ubuntu-Florida LoCo
(https://wiki.ubuntu.com/FloridaTeam/). On that page you'll find
links to our mailing list, forum, irc channel, etc. Everyone is
pretty helpful, so even if you dont "join", you can get a lot of help
when/if you need it. So, my .02 on "must have's" is xchat-gnome.
Join us on #ubuntu-florida.
