- Media player indicator: Ubuntu Unity-like sound indicator;
- Messaging Menu: Unity-like messaging menu;
- TopIcons: shows legacy tray icons on the GNOME Shell Top Bar;

Tweaks available by default
- Pipelight is installed by default so you can watch Netflix and other video streaming services that require Silverlight in Pinguy OS, without having to configure anything;
- TLP, a tool that applies various tweaks to your laptop to save battery power, is installed by default in the latest Pinguy OS 13.10;
- zram-config, an upstart script that enables Zram, is used by default for better performance. With this tweak, a RAM based block device is created which acts as a swap disk, but is compressed and stored in memory instead of swap disk (which is slow), allowing very fast I/O and increasing the amount of memory available before the system starts swapping to disk;
- preload is installed by default – this is a daemon that stores the frequently used files in memory for faster startup times;
- Profile Sync Daemon, a tool that moves the web browser profile to RAM, reducing disk writes and providing increased speed and responsiveness, is installed by default but not enabled. For how to enable/configure it, see THIS article.
