After you have installed a copy of Elementary OS, it's wise to check the recommendations on this page : Top Things To Do After Installing Luna.

Following the above link, the things I did were :

Check for updates and installing them. In a Terminal :

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade 

Adding a community ppa : Elementary Update :

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:versable/elementary-update
sudo apt-get update

Then install Elementary Tweaks, a improved System Settings ( Switchboard ) :

sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks

For package management I use synaptic and gdebi :

sudo apt-get install synaptic gdebi

To upgrade the kernel :

Applications > Synaptic Package Manager  and I looked for the highest number
