    Hi and welcome!

    What you ask depends highly on what distro you run. In fact, this is one of the major differences between distros. Can you post what you are running?
    Can't tell an OS by it's GUI

    It depends on which distro you are using because of the difference in packaging tools.

    Welcome to the forums!

    "Distro" is a shortened term meaning distribution.

    I don't run Red Hat, but I'd think there is a way to get YUM (the package manager) to report all apps installed on the machine.

    with yum you can do
    Code:
    yum -y list installed
