Probably what I say will be duplicates of other people, but here you
go. For email, mutt and Alpine. I don't use Alpine but have seen it
recommended. For web browsers, Lynx the cat and Links. I prefer Lynx
the cat myself but Links works well enough. For irc, I suggest irssi
which was recommended here. I still like the standard irc client ircII,
but it has accessibility issues unless you use a dumb terminal. You
could also include telnet and ssh clients. For games, look at
http://mirror.ifarchive.org/if-archive/ for interactive fiction.
Interpreters for most IF formats should be available as rpm packages. I
can't recommend a messenger client yet. For other games, you could look
at tintin++ which is a mud client and seems accessible.
