Terrible Start

The image you see above here is Terrible Start, a new piece of software I'm creating for Terrible Linux, my debian respin. It will feature all the things in the above screenshot and it is meant as a handy one click start for stuff you want to do. Of course you will be able to turn it off at login, I do not want to bother you with stuff you do not want to have.

Features
  • Notepad with save function
  • Shows your internal IPv4's
  • Shows your external IPv4 address on request
  • 1 click buttons for specific software
  • 1 click buttons for Google, LXer, Debian and Raymii.org
  • Custom URL launcher
  • A penguin themed picture
  • Written in Python with Illumination Software Creator, source available under MIT/X11 license
Bugs
  • External IP button needs CURL installed, otherwise does not works

IT IS A BETA VERSION, NOT READY FOR PRODUCTION. IT MAY WORK, IT MAY NOT WORK, IT ALSO CAN SPAWN A FEW MILLION CREAPERS AND PIG-RIDING SKELETONS WHO BLOW UP AND KILL YOU MINECRAFT STYLE. IF THAT HAPPENS, PLEASE NUKE IT FROM ORBIT, IT IS THE ONLY WAY TO BE SURE.

I have a request for you all, I want to know what you want or do not want in a start screen, features I can add or remove, thing you like or dislike et cetera. I do not want to hear if you think a start screen is necessary, it will be implemented and also be turned off easily. Please leave a comment below.
